Core Strength

Pottery family fun in the October half term
27th October 2020 - 28th October 2020


Description

Herefordshire is the rightful home of apples and apple products. During the coming months, food, cider and juice producers are getting behind a county wide campaign to promote their products and services. The campaign is called ‘Apples for autumn’ and Eastnor Pottery, near Ledbury, Herefordshire has been inspired to take part.

During October ½ term, families are invited to indulge in a little bit of apple-based clay modelling fun.

CORE STRENGTH is the project title and participants of all ages and abilities get the opportunity to fashion a ‘superhero apple’ using soft clay. It could be a kung foo kicking Granny Smith or an alluring Pink Lady super spy – anything goes!

The creative fun doesn’t stop at the clay modelling, oh no, families get to paint their apple superheros with coloured underglazes and slips right there and then!

The apples will need to dry thoroughly before they are fired and glazed. This whole process takes about a month and participants will be contacted once their pottery has emerged from the kiln. If they are unable to collect their pottery masterpieces, P+P can be arranged at £5 per person.

1.5 hr sessions commence at 9.30am, 11.30am and 2pm and places cost £20 per person.

Pre-booking is essential, and places are limited due to the rule of six and social distancing. Children must be accompanied by a fee paying, participating adult. (Sorry no spectators!) Please visit www.eastnorpottery.co.uk  to book online. Alternatively you can contact the Pottery Tel: 01531 633886 or email: [email protected] to secure your places.
