Our Country Child photographer, Millie Pilkington, was full of praise for a pottery workshop she found in Blandford Forum this Summer. The Pottery Parlour run by award winning ceramisist Vanessa Conyers provides an inspirational, creative and messy environment in which to make and paint your ceramics, for all ages. Here’s what Millie had to say;
“Best afternoon possible spent with your children. My girls loved every minute of their 2 hour session and are begging me to go back. Getting their hands dirty, making the pots and ornaments themselves and then painting them was their idea of heaven. Educational, creative fun – with something to show for the end of it. Vanessa and Anna are brilliant with helping the children, teaching them techniques etc. An absolute must for the holidays. But do book in advance as they are very popular!”
Now there’s even more reason to visit as over the Summer holidays, the parlour will be holding Open Days where you and your children can get involved. 2013 dates are: Tuesday 30th July – Thursday 1st August – Tuesday 20th August – Thursday 22nd August – Tuesday 27th August.

As Millie says, your children will want to go back for more!
