Creative fun for hens of all ages. With plenty of laughs, innuendo and photo opportunities, our Hen Parties make for a truly memorable experience! A pottery hen party is perfect for a mixed age group or an arty bride-to-be. No experience is required, demonstration and expert help from your very own Patrick Swayze is at hand throughout!
Package 1 - Pot Throw & Decorate Workshop, £20 per person
Try your hand at making your very own pot on the potter's wheel. Expert instructors will be on hand to help and ensure even the least artistic hen will be proud of her creation. After getting cleaned up, you can relax and spend time painting your pots using our range of coloured slips. Your masterpieces will then be left at the pottery for firing & glazing to change your clay creations into usable ceramic pieces. Pots will be ready to collect approx. 4 weeks later. Alternatively, postage can be arranged to one address, cost dependant on weight.
- Optional Extra -
Bisque Pottery Painting +£5 per person
Add this to the above package and everyone in your group can select a piece of pottery from our range of bisque to paint. No firing is required, so painted items can be boxed and taken away on the day.
Package 2 - Potter's Wheel Taster Workshop, £30 per person
Channel your inner potter on our Taster Workshop and spin pots on the wheel for a whole hour! Create truly unique pieces from bowls, dishes, vases to mugs and more! Demonstration on how to get started, along with expert tuition is on hand throughout. Perfect for small groups, (up to 8 hens) you'll each have your own potter's wheel for the duration. Larger groups can share the 8 wheels switching between spectating and getting messy!

"We went to Honeybourne pottery as a party of 16 as part of my hen doo. Annabel and Alan were wonderful - friendly, helpful, they made the experience lots of fun (and thankfully saved a few pots from disaster!)."
"So so enjoyable - went as part of a hen doo. Annabel and Alan lovely, friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommended!"
"Came here as part of a hen do. Wasn't really looking forward to it as I'm not very creative but actually it was lovely. The couple who run it are welcoming and friendly. We were able to make our own pottery (with help) and it was great fun. This was a laid back fun experience and is great for adults and children." Vicky
