Spend some time getting to grips with making pottery and relaxing in the idyllic Herefordshire countryside with this Full Day Pottery Course at Eastnor Pottery.
Surrounded by rural tranquillity, you’ll have the chance to discover a hidden talent, find your newest hobby, or simply foster some creativity, as well as reaping the therapeutic benefits of working with clay. On arrival you’ll settle down to a comprehensive demonstration of the five steps to making a pot. Then it’s your turn to work through those five steps as a group for the first two or three pots. Once you’ve got the hang of things, it’s time to unleash your inner artist, with skilled potters on hand to help.
In the afternoon, you get to experiment further with larger lumps of clay, bigger pots and different shapes and forms. At the end of the day, you’ll choose your favourite pieces to be fired and glazed. Once complete, they’ll be sent right to your door, ready to take pride of place in your home.

What happens on the day?
You’ll arrive at The Pottery, situated on the Eastnor Castle country estate and nestled in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Groups will be a maximum of eight, allowing for plenty of individual attention and guidance in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Once you’ve been given a brief introduction and an initial demonstration, you’ll be shown a thorough step-by-step guide to the process – and then get to have a go on your own.
After stopping for lunch, you’ll experiment with larger lumps of clay, making bigger pots and using different shapes and forms. You can choose one or two pieces of your own– dependent on size - to be fired and glazed; they’ll be carefully wrapped up and sent to your home address.
