We’ve entertained a few WI groups at the Pottery recently.
Groups of 10 or 12 women have visited the studio in the Autumnal gloom to get creative with clay.
These ladies from West Malvern WI were the latest group to visit on Wednesday evening to make coil pots and each take a turn on the potter’s wheel. Most of them had never experienced the potter’s wheel or even touched clay since leaving school.
They had a great time and were positively beaming at their pottery achievements. Well done ladies!
Each pot made on a potter’s wheel by a first time participant is totally unique. The shape is as individual to its maker as their very own fingerprint – everybody holds their hands in a different way.
Once participants have experienced the joys of making a pot, they are offered the opportunity to further individualise their freshly thrown ware by decorating with coloured slips and underglazes.
The variety of approach to colour and theme is awe inspiring. Just take a look at the multitude of effects (and shapes) of these recently fired & glazed customer creations.

There’s nothing quite like throwing pots on the potter’s wheel to bring people together. We enjoy the way complete strangers bond and forge relationships with each other on our weekend and one day workshops.
Participants form a creative and supportive community and although, by its very nature a transient one, the workshops are always a joy and a life affirming environment in which to work.
Here are some pictorial examples of our recent potter’s wheel communities:

Judging by all the banners appearing outside restaurants and adverts in the local press, we thought it was high time to throw our hat into the ‘Christmas office party’ ring!
For the past 20 years we’ve been hosting Christmas get-together s for businesses and organisations keen to try a novel and creative alternative to the pub meal.
For as little as £15 per head you can experience the delights of modelling and painting soft clay. An extra £10 will enable party goers to take a spin on the potter’s wheel.
Complementary fresh coffee, tea and biscuits are standard, although a lot of our groups prefer to bring alcoholic refreshments and their own nibbles and eats.
So, if you are looking for that stand out Christmas party activity for your workmates and colleagues, then give us a call on 01531 633886 or email email@example.com
We are open 10am – 4pm Tues – Sat but are more than willing to open up in the evening for groups of x6 or more participants.
It sure was a busy one and we’ve had so much fun working with each and every one of our wonderfully creative visitors – thanks for coming!
We always ask if customers don’t mind posing for a photo or two, documenting their time spent with us. Think we managed to snap most of them:
