Pottery Willies… It must be Hen Season!

A usual Monday morning photo shoot consists of a weekends worth of magical and exciting creative masterpieces produced from the extraordinary minds of the little people that join us for their birthday parties! I love seeing their works of art!

However I find myself this week with what only can be described as willies – lots of them… In fact in the last few weeks I’ve seen not much other than these blessed objects!

Last weekend saw our biggest hen party yet with 20 joining us for an afternoon of creative freedom crafting pretty, interesting and hilarious keepsakes!  Champagne, afternoon tea, dressing up and listening to favorite music encouraged these hens to get messy with clay and oh did they…!!

Here is a little collection from our most recent hen parties doing what they do best! Note to self if you don’t like willies look away!!

Farewell 2015 you’ve been beautiful!

With a warm fire gently crackling away in the background and a mug of tea in hand I should be finding it fairly easy to write this final post for 2015. Truth is I’m not! Looking back through the year in pictures it’s difficult to pin point exactly where to start. So because I joined the team in April I have decided to go with a round up of all the wonderful projects I have been introduced to since becoming part of the team! My recipe consists of: Glorious pottery created in house and out and about. What wigs and hats really get up to, festival fun, pottery shows and to top it off a kitty cat surprise none of us expected! I hope you enjoy looking back through our year. Oh and one final thought… #Heyclay! See you in 2016!

 

October/November – Christmas is nearly here!

Well October came and went pretty quickly didn’t it? Here we are with mid November fast approaching and Christmas appears to be just around the corner to. Ahh!! Oooh!!

October saw our half term clay day workshops fully booked with lots of happy potters visiting the studio. We’ve been busy almost every weekend helping to celebrate Birthdays and Hen parties and we’ve welcomed a new potter to the team! Lucy our newest member has been experimenting with clay for years. She is a teacher and finds pottery relaxing in her spare time. When she is not doing either of these, Lucy loves spending time with her children and walking her dog!

Throughout October, Vanessa and the team have been busy beavering away creating The Pottery Parlours first proper shop! We are delighted to announce that The Pottery Shop is now open for business! We are here Monday to Saturday 10am-5pm until Christmas Eve. Please pop in when you are next in Blandford Forum to discover and marvel at the delights of Vanessa’s award winning ceramics. All current collections are here as well as samples from her new SS/16 collection, which include delicate blue and creamy white pieces with her signature gold lustre embellishment. Please note – The pieces you purchase from our shop are a snippet of the gallery prices! So, If you are a lover of beautiful handmade ceramics and want exquisite gifts for your friends and family this Christmas our shop is the place to be!

Is it June already?!

Our pottery puss cats have suddenly quadrupled in size and like nothing more than sleeping, bundling and eating a lot!

We all had a ball last Friday with the return of our fabulous ladies night, enjoyed by all who attended and I’m quite sure we’ll see some returning faces, thanks girls for a great evening.

And finally… We kicked off our summer fair road trip by attending the lovely Gaunts Common Mayfair and couldn’t resist snapping some truly fabulous pics of the children and their masterpieces! Enjoy!
