Escape to the country and spend a relaxing day or weekend learning how to make pottery on the potter's wheel.
Create and relax in rural tranquillity. The Pottery is situated on the Eastnor Castle country estate, close to the Malvern Hills and amidst the idyllic Herefordshire countryside. The perfect environment to unwind, learn a new skill and discover hidden talents.
Perfect stress relieving activity. The therapeutic benefits of working with soft clay on the potter's wheel are considerable. Participants often leave the studio on Sunday afternoon feeling totally de-stressed and with an overwhelming sense of well-being. "I feel like I've spent a weekend at a health farm!" commented a recent punter.
Everybody can do it. there are no mistakes in pottery, just happy accidents and learning experiences! The positive and inclusive nature of the instruction means everybody achieves amazing results.
Small friendly class sizes. We currently have eight electric potters wheels so purposely limit the group size to eight participants. This ensures plenty of individual attention and guidance from our team of potters.
Explore a wide range of making techniques focused on the potters wheel. These include throwing, turning, attaching handles & motifs and decorating using under-glaze and coloured slip.
Cost: £130 a day & £240 weekend.
