Family workshops in the buildup to Christmas

Evergreen!

5 November – 21 December 2019

We’re delighted to announce details of our fun and creative themed workshops for families in the buildup to Christmas 2019.

Evergreen! is the seasonal title and participants will learn how to coil a Christmas Tree using soft clay under the expert tutelage of professional potters. The fun doesn’t just stop with the hand making. Participants also get to decorate their freshly created masterpieces, there and then with a seasonal palate of paints and under-glazes. All this for just £20 per person.

The creations will need to dry out before they can be fired and glazed. This process takes about a month and the Pottery will contact participants as soon as they are out of the kiln and ready for collection. (NB If you attend after the 1st December we may not be able to get them through the kilns before the 25th December 2019. The earlier you can book-in, the greater the chance we’ll be able to fire them in time.)

Don’t worry if you can’t make it back to Eastnor to collect your ceramic arty-fact, P+P can be arranged at £5 per item.

Sessions need to be booked in advance and the Pottery is open Tuesday – Saturday. The Evgergreen project is available as from Tuesday 5th November until Saturday 21st December inclusive. 1.5 hr sessions commence at 10am, 11.30am and 2pm. Telephone and email booking essential: Tel: 01531 633886 e: admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

If hand modeling isn’t your thing then there is plenty of opportunity to try the potter’s wheel instead starting at just £30 per person.

We look forward to hearing from you!

It’s all about the journey and we greatly value and enjoy observing how our customers and workshop participants engage with the clay and their relationship with environment and individuals around them. That said, we oversee some pretty inspiring and sophisticated end products too!

Check out these ‘book’ tile panels inspired by children’s literature we co-created with Meadows first School in Bromsgrove. We spent x2 industrious days working with the entire school, each child producing a single tile. The tiles have been assembled onto boards and will adorn the front of the school for community and visitors alike to admire when they visit the school.

This project was initiated to celebrate the schools 50th birthday and the resulting ceramic masterpiece made by the children will hang in the reception hall.
