“Lovely staff, welcoming and lots of fun! We went to eastnor today with my 5 year old and 18 month old as something to do while visiting Nan. The kids really enjoyed the morning, as did I. My older daughter made some pinch pots of her teddies and I threw a pot on the wheel. Our toddler got to squidge clay with the help of Nan and was introduced by Jon and Kate to the fun pottery in the garden, she giggled for the whole time we were there!
A big thank you to Ethan and Gemma who guided us through the process and we will be back on our next visit!” Kellie
