I treated a friend to this to celebrate us both reaching the grand age of 60. Our teacher, Jon, was excellent and there were also two interns to help the class of 8 that we joined. After a demonstration we were all assigned a potters wheel and set off making a variety of pots and bowls.. some more successful than others it has to be said. There was a lovely lunch which we managed to eat outside before the rain arrived plus a constant supply of coffee, tea and biscuits. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something different to do and it’s in a beautiful part of the country.

Thanks for this bunkerhunt1 :) So pleased you chose to fly Eastnor Pottery for your 60th celebrations and it was a particularly lovely group of potters on the 21st. Your creations are half way through the firing/glazing process so expect a parcel or two of glazed gems very soon! We'll email to let you know they are on their way. Thanks once again for taking the time to review your Eastnor Pottery experience.

My daughter and her friends had the most enjoyable time for her 6th birthday. They were completely spoilt on their visit and my daughter declared that it was the best birthday party ever!

I would highly recommend

We thoroughly enjoyed it too! Particularly the impromptu dance party at the end - and as for the weather!!! The Potting Tent looked amazing and the things the girls made were fantastic #powertotheunicorn

7 of us pottery novices had a great time conquering the wheel with the assistance of Jon and Sarah. We were completely absorbed in keeping the clay under control but were thrilled with our efforts (we will be keeping the day jobs). A fabulous day of craft!

Thanks Erica - we loved sharing the Pottery with you on Saturday and it was great to meet you all, but I have to disagree - you do need to give up the day jobs! #properpotters :)
