Eastnor Pottery, near Ledbury, Herefordshire is delighted to announce details of its fun and creative pottery sessions for families in the rapidly approaching October ½ term holiday.
Hedgehogs provide the inspiration for the autumnal clay fueled fun.
Participants of all ages and abilities will each make a terracotta hedgehog using the hand modelling pinch-pot technique. They will also be encouraged to paint their creations with a creamy white slip – perfect for scratching through to reveal the raw terracotta clay underneath. Connoisseurs of the clay arts will know this technique as sgraffito, a very satisfying and fun method of pottery decoration.
The hedgehogs will be fired, glazed and ready for collection from the Pottery one month later. Don’t worry if you are unable to collect, P+P is available at £5 per item.
1.5 hr sessions commence at 9.30am, 11.30am and 2pm and cost £20 per person. Under 12’s must be accompanied by at least one fee paying adult. Places can be booked online by visiting www.eastnorpottery.co.uk or calling 01531 633886.
