pottery hen party in the potting tent at eastnor pottery and the flying potter

Although it’s only early March, the gorgeous weather last weekend put us in mind of all the gorgeous pottery hen parties we’ve hosted here at Eastnor Pottery.

Fingers crossed we’ll be welcoming groups of gals back to the Pottery very soon and if you’ve been charged with organising a hen weekend, please take a look at our Pottery Hen Party page. Lots of creative fun and memories to be made.

Please use the contact form to check availability and book your event. Alternatively, email: admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk or there’s always someone to take your call Monday – Friday during Lockdown. Please telephone 01531 633886.

We look forward to hearing from you but in the meantime, here’s a few hen party team photos from yesteryear!

February half term would normally see us packed to the rafters with families and young people, enjoying an hour or two of pottery making. This year, and you don’t need reminding why, it was not to be.

In an attempt to engage our lovely audience we took to Facebook and broadcast x3 and totally FREE pottery tutorials for families to try at home.

What a fantastic response!

Thank you to everybody who took the time to share their fantastic clay models with us. We salute you.

Don’t worry if you weren’t able to ‘make along’ live, we’ve published the videos on our Facebook page so you can follow them at your leisure :)

superb pottery skills at eastnor pottery

On our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class you get to make two pots each. We then ask you to select your fave for firing.

Sometimes it’s an easy choice! ;) other times participants are faced with a difficult decision!

This adult family of four did really well, their pottery prowess reflected in the quality of their final selection. Well done everybody!
