This time last year we were entering a phase of extreme busyness with classes, workshops and pottery events taking place not only here at the Pottery but out in the wider community. Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter could be found in two or three different venues across the West Midlands, all on the same day.
To fulfill the seasonal demand, we employed a select team of undergraduate and casual workers to help share the clay love.
Say hello to Katie!
Katie worked for us last Summer having completed a week of work experience with us in the Spring. At the time, she was a 2nd year student on a BA Hons Textiles course in Falmouth. Katie has now graduated with a 2:1! Well done Katie :) What with her creativity and positive attitude, she has an exciting future ahead of her.
All the photos featured are from her final ‘degree show’ project.
“For part of my final project in third year I took a humorous approach to the classic British holiday, delving in to the weird yet wonderful world of British culture and how it translates abroad. producing a wide variety of works to accompany this intriguing topic ranging from jacquard weaving, illustration, graphic art and embroidery. As a graduate, I hope to expand my digital business and become a key part of the ever growing graphic industry.”
This is what she had to say about working at Eastnor Pottery.
“Upon my first day I was welcomed with open arms and delved in to many different learning experiences from customer service, postage and packaging, glazing, throwing pots and not forgetting many teas and coffees! The pottery is beautiful setting inspiring creativity and positive environment for all the activities they offer. Jon and Sarah’s enthusiasm and support helped me to become more confident in the world of work and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience! I am truly grateful for the opportunity they gave me to be a small part of their wonderful business and everything I learnt whilst working there.”
