CHILDREN'S HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS
Come and have fun making a masterpiece or make a mess (within reason!) at our family friendly studio. We run themed clay modelling sessions & potters wheel workshops for children of all ages every school holiday. Workshops cover a range of making techniques and using decorative slips. Please see below for full details and how to book.
CLAY MODELLING WORKSHOP
Children can get creative during the holidays at our themed clay modelling workshop. A demonstration will be given at the start of the workshop and then children can get hands-on making their creation using coils of clay. Children will also have the chance to paint their masterpieces using coloured slips. All the finished works of art will be left at our studio to dry thoroughly before being fired and given a clear glaze. Approx. 5 weeks later we will notify you by email about collection. Price includes all materials and firing/ glazing costs.
Cost: £16 per child. Suitable for ages 3-15 years.
DURATION: Approx. 1 hour.
Pot Throw & Decorate Workshop
Every school holiday, we run our popular Pot Throw & Decorate Workshops for children and families. Come and learn how to throw a pot on the wheel and then spend time afterwards decorating it using decorative slips and sponges. We'll fire and glaze your pot for a permanent ceramic finish and it will be ready to collect from the studio approx. 4 weeks later. A great option for children & adults of all ages just wanting to try the wheel once. Full demonstration is given at the start of the workshop and so is ideal for the complete beginner.
COST: £20 child & £22 adult.
DURATION: Approx 1 hour.
BOOKING: To book please first select your chosen date from the calendar on our Make A Booking page and click “BOOK NOW”. Be sure to book in advance online, as we often can't accommodate customers on a walk-in basis.
"Half term and the kids are climbing up the walls, pouring with rain. Booked with Alan at 9am and arrived at 11. He did a very clear demonstration for the kids aged 6,8,& 11, then they all made something, and painted it afterwards. He's even posting the one bowl when it's been fired to kid who lives in London. Highly recommended." Jo
"Both my boys had a fantastic time at the half-term modelling workshop and want to come again! Not only did they really enjoy making their monsters but also chatting to the other children, which for Jake it quite rare. Jake is on the autistic spectrum and struggles with extreme anxiety, it's not often we find something he feels relaxed doing. Thank you so much." Vicky
"We had a brilliant afternoon yesterday thank you so much! Everyone enjoyed themselves, the kids had a ball getting messy with clay and painting - and we grown ups were all excited to make our own creations on the wheel! Thank you so much!."
