D3 Active hired The Flying Potter to provide pottery sessions to run alongside an impressive carousel of other teambuilding activities at a large scale event in Oxfordshire.

We worked with approx 120 employees in 1 hour long rotational groups of 30 people. It was a fun and creative day and everybody who participated made an individual ceramic sculpture.

The soft clay masterpieces were then transported back to Eastnor Pottery HQ, dried, fired and returned to the client to be treasured as a permanent reminder of a fantastic team event.

If you are looking for a creative teambuilding activity or a unique way to reward your workforce then please take a look at our teambuilding projects and away day opportunities. You can visit us at our studio on the beautiful Eastnor Castle Estate or we are very happy to deliver the Eastnor Pottery experience at a venue of your choosing.

Turns out agricultural recruitment agents make for brilliant potters too!

As well as creating some mighty fine pots on the wheel, the group made a magnificent collaborative piece decorated in an agricultural style with modeled sheep, wheat and farmers!

The individual pots made on the potter’s wheel came alive in the last hour of the workshop as participants used their imagination and coloured underglazes to great effect.

Here’s what lead contact Caroline thought of the activity:

“I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for hosting the team yesterday – everyone had a fantastic time. Judging by the chatter in the office this morning, I think we even have a few who are eager to have another crack at it!

The set up you guys have down there is really impressive and especially the way you were able to lead the group through the process so everyone progressed at the same rate – it was all just really well put together, and all in all a great day out for the team.”

Thanks Caroline :)

So much fun, such a lovely afternoon :) Thanks for coming Molly & co.

The Welsh girls had ventured into Herefordshire for the whole weekend, leasing a large house as their base for numerous activities and field trips. Pottery featured high on the list and the organiser Sian managed to keep the visit to Eastnor a total surprise from the bride to be.

Emma took to the wheel first and made some hilarious miss-shapes before settling on a lovely little pot, applauded and appreciated by her watching friends.

We had three wheels on the go so all the party managed to make their shapes before painting them all together chatting and laughing around the table. We’ll fire and glaze the vessels in time for Emma’s wedding later this month.
