Jump in! Children’s Pottery Sessions 1st Aug 2018

Immy one of our community arts aprentices showing a girl how to make a pot on the potter's wheelWe are delighted to announce details of our fun, creative and Summer themed children’s workshop sessions scheduled for the approaching six week break.

Jump In is the theme and youngsters will get to sample the delights of the potter’s wheel as well as learning other clay modeling techniques.

The workshop sessions, designed for children as young as 4 years take place on Wed 1st August.

Participants will each take a turn on the potter’s wheel guided by one of our resident, friendly potters. The resulting ‘pot’ will be filled with the children’s clay models becoming a paddling, duck or rock pool – it could be anything, but rest assured we’ll be guided by the children’s own interests and imagination.

The children’s creations will be fired and ready for collection from the Pottery approx. one month later – dates and times will be issued on the day of the workshops.

1.5 hr sessions commence at 11.30am and 2pm and are tailored for two age groups: 4-8yrs in the mornings and 9-12yrs in the afternoons. Although, these age ranges are not strictly adhered to as younger and older siblings are always welcome to participate on either session.

Places cost £15 per head with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone and email booking essential: Tel: 01531 633886 e: admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

Superhero!

Superhero poster children's pottery session 30-5-18Children’s Pottery sessions in half term. Wed 30 May 2018

We are delighted to announce details of our fun and creative children’s workshop sessions scheduled for the approaching half term holiday.

Superhero is the exciting and inspirational theme.

It doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll be encouraging the children to make Marvel Comic inspired characters (although who can fail to be impressed by the powers of Ironman or The Hulk!) We’ll also be encouraging the young clay enthusiasts to consider Superheros closer to home. We’re thinking mums, dads, grandparents, teachers or some other figure they admire or look up to.

Once the children have modelled their superheros using a range of pottery making techniques, they will have the opportunity to paint their creations, there and then with coloured slips and underglazes.

The resulting work will need to dry thoroughly before it can be fired in the kiln. We allow approximately one month for this process and details of collection times will be issued on the day of the workshop.

1.5 hr sessions commence at 11.30am and 2pm and are tailored for two age groups: 4-8yrs in the morning and 9-12yrs in the afternoon. Although, these age ranges are not strictly adhered to as younger and older siblings are always welcome to participate on either session.

Places cost £15 per head with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone and email booking essential: Tel: 01531 633886 e: admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

If your children have yet to experience our fun and fabulously creative clay sessions, then the approaching ½ term holiday heralds the perfect chance to do so!

‘Thanks a Bunch’ is the appreciative theme and children as young as 4 yrs. will get to make and paint a pottery vase stuffed full of modelled clay flowers.

The resulting clay masterpieces will be fired, glazed and made ready for collection from the Pottery in time for Mother’s Day! I’m sure you’ll agree this is a not to be missed opportunity to produce a hand-made gift for that very special lady.

The workshops take place on two consecutive Wednesdays to accommodate the different ½ term breaks in the three counties: 14th Feb for Gloucestershire and 21st Feb for Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

Sessions are designed for two age groups although younger and older siblings will never be turned away: 11.30am-1pm 4-8YRS and 2-3.30pm 9-12YRS. Places cost £15 per child with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone or email booking essential. 01531 633886 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

Don’t forget you can book a session for the whole family in the February 1/2 term holiday. Just call us on the number above to check availability and make a booking. We have start times at 10am, 11.30am, 2pm and 3pm Tuesday – Saturday.

Mammoth project

Collaborative terracotta mammoth made by families at WM&AG and Eastnor PotteryThis rather striking terracotta mammoth was made by Jon the Potter at Worcester Museum and Art Gallery. Families were invited to drop by and help make the ice age beast as part of an exciting year long project called Lost Landscapes of Worcestershire. The project culminates in the summer of 2018 with an exhibition at both the Museum in Forgate Street and The Hive.

The Enormous Turnip

As October half term rapidly approaches, we are delighted to announce details of our fun and creative children’s pottery workshop sessions planned for Wednesday 25th October.

The tale of the Enormous Turnip will provide the autumnal inspiration with participants each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel to make a trug for their root vegetable.

Instead of pulling handles, the children will ‘pull’ turnips from the earth! ;)

One at a time, they will sample the delights of the potter’s wheel, taking their little pot back to the table to be filled with hand-modelled Autumnal fare.

The children will be using terracotta clay and their fired creations will be ready for collection from the Pottery approx. one month later.

Sessions are designed for two age groups although younger and older siblings will never be turned away: 11.30am-1pm 4-8YRS and 2-3.30pm 9-12YRS. Places cost £15 per child with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone or email booking essential. 01531 633886 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk
