Eastnor Pottery, near Ledbury, Herefordshire is delighted to announce details of its fun and creative themed workshops for families in the approaching summer holiday.
Clay bugs and mud monsters! is the inspirational title and participants will learn how to create a hollow bug or fantastical beast using soft clay under the expert tutelage of professional potters. The fun doesn’t just stop with the hand making. Participants also get to decorate their freshly created masterpieces, there and then with a colourful palate of paints and underglazes. All this for just £20 per person.
If hand modeling isn’t your thing then there is plenty of opportunity to try the potter’s wheel instead starting at just £30 per person.
The creations will need to dry out before they can be fired and glazed. This process takes about a month and the Pottery will contact participants as soon as they are out of the kiln and ready for collection. Don’t worry if you can’t make it back to Eastnor to collect your ceramic arty-fact, P+P can be arranged at £5 per item.
Sessions need to be booked in advance and the Pottery is open Tuesday – Saturday. The Clay bugs and mud monsters project is available as from Tuesday 2 July until Saturday 7 September inclusive, although please note the Pottery will be Closed Saturday 31st August.
1.5 hr sessions commence at 10am, 11.30am and 1.30pm and 3pm.
