NFU coat of arms

Pottery coat of arms made by NFU West Midlands at Eastnor Pottery Herefordshire

The West Midlands contingent of The National Farmers Union visited the Pottery in October for a spot of team building and creative play. The group spent an hour or so meeting in the Potting Tent (a unique conferencing suite if ever there was one!) before joining us in the  studio for the main pottery event.

The group made a ceramic crest, a clay coat of arms depicting agricultural aspects of the five counties. There were two representatives from Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire, each sub-team charged with a separate section of the crest. There was also ample time for everybody to throw a few pots on five potter’s wheels we’d primed for the occasion.

New skills discovered and everybody feeling relaxed and refreshed, the team headed back to their Telford HQ.

Last week we headed into Shropshire to deliver their ceramic masterpiece to be hung in their office – a permanent reminder of what can be achieved through teamwork.

NFU working the clay

Clay tiles made at eastnor pottery by nfu west midlands as a team building exerciseNo less than five counties, agricultural speaking were represented at Eastnor Pottery on Monday.

The West Midlands region of The National Farmers Union took turns on the potter’s wheel and made a fantastic coat of arms depicting agricultural aspects of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.

Once the crest has been fired, glazed and mounted it will hang in the organisation’s office in Telford, serving as a permanent and creative reminder of their team day at Eastnor Pottery.
