Voices & Visions 2016

It’s that time again for all the schools in Worcestershire to exhibit and take pride in all their creative exploits from the academic year.

Redditch Primary School works with Eastnor Pottery and Flying Potter to produce Ceramic Tile Panel

Voices and visions 2016 takes place at Worcester  Cathedral for the next three weeks and show cases all the artistic talent from the county’s schools and colleges.

We are proud to have partnered at least two Worcestershire Schools represented at this year’s show.

In April we worked with Holyoaks First School, Redditch and Bengeworth Academy, Evesham to help them realize some fantastic clay and ceramic art works.

We produced a couple of collaborative oak tree wall panels with Holyoaks with every child in the school making and painting a clay leaf.

The school did an excellent job of mounting the tiles on some rather wonderfully painted boards – good work you guys.

Window of inspiration

Model window at Malvern parish for ceramic stained glass window tile panels made with Eastnor PotteryThis magnificent leaded window at Malvern Parish Primary School in Worcestershire provided the inspiration for a whole school pottery project.

Jon spent two days working with all 260 children on these six wonderful tile panels destined for the walls of the main school hall. Each child made a diamond window pane decorated with images based upon the schools values.

Marlbrook terracotta treat

Sarah and Jon joined forces to work with the entire population of Marlbrook Primary School in Hereford. The participatory arts project took place during British values week and each child contributed a clay creation towards a giant, three dimensional, terracotta tea service.

Martly Owl


Martly Primary School and Eastnor Pottery made fantastic Owl tile panelWe have produced so many collaborative ceramic tile panels with so many schools and early years settings that occasionally, we never get to see the results assembled and presented on the wall.

Following a memorable and busy couple of days working with the whole of Martley Primary School, the fired tiles were dispatched from the Pottery loose in boxes. This all happened years ago and although I was aware the panel had been installed, I never had the opportunity to view the creation or embarrassingly request a photo.

A friend of a friend of a teacher who I recently worked with, forwarded this photo of the Martley Owl, which I must say has weathered very well and still looks capital despite it’s age.
