Jack was very patient with us, as we were indecisive, of what we wanted to make. We had a great morning and came home with a great pot each.... More

missed the holiday workshop for children, decided to book myself and my 9yr old for our own workshop during the half term. Set times are available. When we arrived we were offered a drink, and had a look at the wide variety of options available to the budding potter. Handmodelled "pinch pots" of varying sizes, hand made coiled pots of... More

Thank you wigmac for your comprehensive review. I'm sure potential customers will enjoy the detail in your report. So glad you opted for the fire & glaze as your pots will make for a lovely, permanent momento of your time spent with your daughter at the Pottery. More

I took my 3 young daughters to the pottery, the staff were very friendly and informative. They took time to help us with the potter's wheel. We all enjoyed the afternoon. Would certainly recommend.

My wife and I had such a fantastic day - thank you Jon and all of the team. Despite being complete novices we finished the day with several half-decent pots between us and enthused to give it another go. It’s given “The Great Pottery Throw Down" a whole new meaning! Lovely lunch too. I can’t recommend a day’s course here... More

I had such a nice day. It was a perfect guidance/independence ratio so I came away having learnt loads but also happy and covered in clay. I even managed to create a few nice pots, which I can't wait to see! I'll definitely be back soon.

Jon W, Owner at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter, responded to this review

Thanks Rachel - a few nice pots!? You nailed it - in fact the whole group did. Everybody demonstrated an exceptionally high level of skill and understanding. Once the keepsakes had been selected and the 'learning' pots consigned to the re-claim, it looked like we'd been entertaining a group of seasoned professionals. Look forward to welcoming you back soon. :) More

Such a lovely afternoon with a bunch of 9 year old party-goers. Jon and the staff were so easygoing and relaxed which meant that the entire experience was stress-free and pleasant. The children made the terracotta nightlights which was the perfect balance between instruction and creativity. Working with the wheel was so hypnotic and fun that I'm thinking about going... More

Aw, thanks Estelle. It didn't feel much like work to be truthful - the girls were delightful :) We'd be honoured to host your birthday bash - we enjoy 21st celebrations! ;) Thanks for choosing EP and we'll be in touch as soon as the children's creations are out of the kiln. More

Spent a lovely afternoon here as a way of celebrating a 21st birthday! Staff were very friendly and informative, and we were even given a complimentary cup of tea! Two of us made coil pots and the birthday boy had a go on the potter's wheel. We had lots of creative fun and would definitely recommend.

I booked a pottery weekend experience for my wife as a present. The booking process was easy and professional. The feedback from my wife was that the course was brilliant and gave her an excellent introduction to using a wheel. I would highly recommend purchasing an experience at Eastnor Pottery for anyone with an interest in pottery.

Thanks Peter - very kind of you to write a review from the perspective of the gift giver. Experiences as presents are the best! :) Whilst your wife was conquering the spinning clay, I understand you were out walking the Malvern Hills? Did the mist lift enough to reveal the stunning views? More

What a fantastic weekend at the Potter's Wheel Workshop. The venue is perfect, well equipt and the lunches were lovely. I was made to feel so welcome in such a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. I have learnt so much, loved every minute and will definitely be coming back for more!

Thanks Ellie and so glad you enjoyed your creative stop-off here in the Shire. We loved your 'wizard hat' coil-pot creation. You'll be pleased to know, it inspired a Harry Potter mad afternoon visitor to make a 'Sorting Hat'. :) Your fired and glazed pots will be winging their way to you in approx. 1 months time. More
