If your children have yet to experience our fun and fabulously creative clay sessions, then the approaching ½ term holiday heralds the perfect chance to do so!

‘Thanks a Bunch’ is the appreciative theme and children as young as 4 yrs. will get to make and paint a pottery vase stuffed full of modelled clay flowers.

The resulting clay masterpieces will be fired, glazed and made ready for collection from the Pottery in time for Mother’s Day! I’m sure you’ll agree this is a not to be missed opportunity to produce a hand-made gift for that very special lady.

The workshops take place on two consecutive Wednesdays to accommodate the different ½ term breaks in the three counties: 14th Feb for Gloucestershire and 21st Feb for Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

Sessions are designed for two age groups although younger and older siblings will never be turned away: 11.30am-1pm 4-8YRS and 2-3.30pm 9-12YRS. Places cost £15 per child with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone or email booking essential. 01531 633886 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

Don’t forget you can book a session for the whole family in the February 1/2 term holiday. Just call us on the number above to check availability and make a booking. We have start times at 10am, 11.30am, 2pm and 3pm Tuesday – Saturday.

Clay makes for a valuable lesson!

pottery artist in residence project at Dines Green Primary SchoolThese value oaks were commissioned and made by all the children at Dines Green Primary School in Worcester.

Each child made and painted a pottery leaf based upon one of the six school values. Quite a challenging task to make mini clay decoration symbolising notions of respect, resilience, reflection, curiosity, empathy and honesty!

Mammoth project

Collaborative terracotta mammoth made by families at WM&AG and Eastnor PotteryThis rather striking terracotta mammoth was made by Jon the Potter at Worcester Museum and Art Gallery. Families were invited to drop by and help make the ice age beast as part of an exciting year long project called Lost Landscapes of Worcestershire. The project culminates in the summer of 2018 with an exhibition at both the Museum in Forgate Street and The Hive.
