Well, to the Pottery anyway!
Yr1 visited us in March and spent the day making a collaborative flowerpot and individual works inspired by the illustrative genius Julia Donaldson
Julia’s characters are a gift to reproduce in clay and the youngsters from Winterfold House School were soon creating characters from The Gruffalo, Room On The Broom and The Smartest Giant in Town.
We were delighted to welcome Leigh and Bransford Primary School to the Pottery in the last week of January.
KS1 split into two groups, one toured the Castle while the other made clay mott & bailey coil pots with us.
In the afternoon, the groups swapped over, ensuring everbody got to sample all aspects of the Eastnor experience on their school outing.
This is what the school art co-ordinator had to say about the visit:
“They had such a wonderful day and learnt so much from you guys! They cannot wait to get their creations back when they are ready! Thank you so much, I and my colleagues will recommend you to anyone”
