Pottery at Eastnor Castle

Eastnor Pottery, near Ledbury, Herefordshire is delighted to announce details of its fun and creative sessions for families.

Participants will make a ‘coil pot’ bucket filled with seaside inspired loveliness.

“Instantly, the spoils of rock pooling come to mind, crabs, fish, seashells etc but equally the bucket might be hiding a deep sea monster, octopus or a blue whale – anything goes!” commented Jon ‘the Potter’ Williams.

As soon as families have finished modelling their creations, they’ll have the opportunity to paint them using a rainbow of coloured slips and underglazes.

The work will need to dry thoroughly before it’s fired and glazed. This whole process takes about a month and participants will be contacted once their pottery has emerged from the kiln. If customers are unable to collect their masterpieces, P+P can be arranged at £5 per model.

The clay fuelled fun takes place on the following dates: 21 July, 28 July, 4 Aug, 11 Aug and 18 Aug with 1.5 hr sessions starting at 9.30am, 11.30am and 2pm. The cost is £20 per person and all children must be accompanied by a fee paying adult. Due to social distancing, there isn’t space for spectators or helpers.
