Well organised and presented. Fairly small group of kids (40) from 7 to 12 years old. The theme for the day was making a clay box from tile sized clay slabs. The kids where shown how to do everything from scratch; how to make the box sides, lid etc, techniques for decorating and then had fun painting with glaze. Good value for the 90 mins session. I understand discounts are also available for larger parties etc. We will be returning for tuition on potters wheel.

Always check availability before travelling.

Thanks Chris. Your daughters box of delights was a stunner - very creative indeed. The fired finished item will be ready for collection from the Pottery 25th, 26th and 27th January.

I have always wanted to have a go at using a potters wheel and what better way to spend my hen party by making all my friends do it too! There were 15 of us and everyone was raving about our time here for weeks. Jon was the perfect host and we felt very welcome and at home in the wonderfully cosy studio. I will definitely be back!

As part of my sister’s Hen weekend we decided to go to Eastnor Pottery. There was a group of 11 of us and we all made and decorated our own pots. The day was fantastic, we all had a great time and Jon was very welcoming and friendly. We all created some really nice pots and we cannot wait to pick them up. Jon was very helpful and easy to contact when booking the pottery class which made organising the Hen Party activity very easy. We would all recommend Eastnor Pottery and its well worth a visit.

Thanks Michelle, your masterpieces will be in the kiln later this week. Is that you looking v-sporty on the mountain bike in your thumbnail?

Just come back from a fabulous weekend of pottery. We spent Saturday throwing pots, then on Sunday we finiished off the pots we had thrown and decorated them. Jon made it all look so simple and with his help we all achieved much more than we thought possible. Highly recommended - a really absorbing and relaxing weekend.

My youngest daughter had her 9th birthday party with 7 family and friends. Jon and his daughter Lottie were so friendly and they created a fantastic atmosphere. The children each made a pot and all tried their hand on the potter's wheel. Wonderful fun and now I want to try it as well!! Can't recommend highly enough.
