Wat je gaat doen
The workshop starts at 10am. After tea/coffee and introductions we'll show you how it's done by way of a demonstration of the 5 steps to making a pot on the potter's wheel. Then it's time to 'saddle up' (everybody has a wheel to themselves) and as a group, step by step, we'll all progress together through the pot throwing process. After two or three 'group' pots and once you have got the hang of things, you will be encouraged to develop at your own pace with individual tutoring as and when required. Around 1pm, a delicious lunch consisting of rolls, cheese, ham, salad and fruit is served. In the afternoon there will be further demonstrations after which you will work larger lumps of clay, make bigger pots and explore different shapes and forms. At the end of the workshop you will be expected to clean your wheel and select your favourite two or three pieces, depending on size, to be fired and glazed. (Extra pots can be fired at cost – £6 per 250g payable on the day) The session ends at 4pm. Your creations will be shipped right to your door, arriving approx. one month later (to one address in the UK) ready to take pride of place in your home.
Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter was established by myself Jon Williams and wife Sarah in 1994. We met at art-school in the early 90's and graduated with BA Hons in Ceramics....and a burning ambition to make pottery! Our studio serves as a creative space where we produce not only individual pots and works of ceramic art, but share our passion and enthusiasm for clay with others. We have a combined experience of over 40 years working with adults, young people and children from our idyllic Herefordshire studio and in other community, educational and business settings all over the UK.

Waar je zult zijn
Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter is located on the idyllic Herefordshire Eastnor Castle Estate. The Castle is well worth a visit but please check opening times before you set off. The market town of Ledbury is the nearest place to find B+B's, hotels, shops, bars and restaurants - a super place with award winning independent shops and galleries.

Although you are required to bring an apron, it's worth considering your clothing and foot-ware. There is a certain degree of splashing and splattering so dark colours are easier to wash.
