Happy Birthday To You!

Birthday girl helen celebrates 30th birthday at Eastnor Pottery HerefordshirePeople of all ages celebrate their birthdays with us here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter.

Helen and her family opted for our 1.5hr shared potter’s wheel experience to mark her 30th. The six adults took turns on the wheel, each person making three or four pots.  Those resting from the wheel offered words of encouragement or simply giggled at their potting partners, wrestling with the spinning clay. One thing was certain, and everybody agreed,  the activity made for a great spectator sport!

We’ll fire and glaze the party’s pots ready for the group to collect in a month’s time, the ceramic keepsakes serving as a permanent reminder of Josie’s special day.

Osteopots!

osteopaths away day at Eastnor PotteryWe welcomed Churchdown Osteopaths to the Pottery a few weeks back for an afternoon of potter’s wheel  fun and creativity. The group was x15 members strong and everybody had plenty of opportunity to make pots on x8 potter’s wheels as well as creating some hand-built gems when they were resting from the wheels.

Hey hey hey – its time for FREE clay!

Once again we are ‘throwing’ ;) caution to the wind and taking part in the immensely popular, terribly creative and extremely good fun HEY CLAY event.

We are inviting individuals and families to make a pot on the potter’s wheel for FREE.

Participants get to take their creations away on the day to dry and paint at home or, they can be left with us to be fired and glazed at just £10. An additional £5 per pot will entitle the maker to paint their pot in ceramic colour right there and then.

15 min time slots available all day. Pre-booking essential. Tel 01531 633886 or admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

We also have oodles of FREE parking on site.

HEY CLAY! is a national celebration of clay which gives everyone the chance to unleash their inner potter at venues across the UK through free workshops and taster sessions.

The event is organised by The Crafts Council and takes place 23rd – 25th March as part of the BBC’s GET CREATIVE FESTIVAL

Here are a few pics from last year’s Hey Clay:

Creative hen party

Hen party group make pottery jugs and gobletsWe hosted our first ever pottery hen party over 20 years ago having been approached by a brides maid looking for a creative hen party activity for an arty hen.

We were (and still are) always up for a challenge and said ‘yes’ without too much hesitation. It just sounded like such an interesting, novel and fun preposition.

Little did we anticipate at the time, hen parties would become such a huge (and hugely enjoyable!) part of our workshop offer.

Here are a few photos from Claire’s particularly lovely pottery hen party experience we facilitated Autumn 2017. The girls made and painted coil pot goblets which looked stunning once they had been fired and glazed.

A right proper Capper family celebration!

Jon the Potter helps a young pottery participant to make a pot on the potter's wheelWe just love hosting big family groups, no more so than when the lovely Capper family visited the Pottery in January.

Participants of all ages made pots on x7 potter’s wheels we’d prepped especially to celebrate Grandad Ron’s 65th Birthday.

We call this option our Deluxe potter’s wheel experience where participants spend 3 hrs taking turns on multiple wheels. We then fire and glaze the group’s creations ready to be collected from the Pottery approx one month later.
