Paint Your Own Parties & Ladies’ Nights

I’ve felt very privileged lately to be a part of some wonderful ladies’ pottery painting evenings, hen parties and children’s parties.

The great thing about pottery painting is that some really simple decoration techniques such as sponges and stencils give a great look, and equally if you want to let your creative energies flow, there are no boundaries! I have various samples and techniques that I can show you (I love spending time experimenting with different ways to apply paint and pattern!)

One of the ladies who painted a plate recently is Swedish and used a fantastic Swedish word as the focus of her plate – “Fika” meaning a break for a coffee and a cinnamon bun!

I can come to your home, group or party venue to do a pottery painting session – prices from £10 per person. Please do get in touch if you are interested.

I can also provide “DIY” pottery painting kits. I recently made up a “bunting kit” for a baby shower where each person made a star to thread on a ribbon to make a bunting string for the new baby – the results are in the photos below – so special!

2Spots Christmas Stock

I am really excited that I will be attending The Sorting Office Open Winter Studios (37 Wells Road, Eastleigh SO50 5FY) on Saturday 19th November 11am-5pm and Sunday 20th November 11am-4pm. I have been working hard to build up a good range of stock, so please do drop in to say hello and maybe pick up a few gifts for Christmas.

Here are some examples of what you might be able to find 🙂 If there is something that takes your fancy but you are unable to call in at the Open Studios, please get in touch for more details. Sarah x


Handprint and Footprints for Christmas

Before I started 2Spots I found it very hard to even think about Christmas before December, but now I find myself making Christmas stock before the Summer holidays, and by the time October comes, I feel that it is nearly here! It’s great that my some of my customers have started thinking about it early too, as I have already completed some Christmas orders which is a relief as I’m now really busy with appointments and the time between now and Christmas feels very short when I work out how many making hours there are and how many kiln firings I can squeeze in!!

Imprints and my handmade ceramics all involve two firings, and each takes 48 hours between turning the kiln on and being able to open it when it has cooled down. Added to this is drying time and glazing time, so it’s not a quick process. Consequently, my last date for imprints with a Christmas delivery is 23rd November and for painted pottery is 12th December. Appointments are filling fast so if you would like some items made for Christmas, please get in touch 🙂

I’ve put together a gallery of photos of some of this years work and last year’s Christmas orders to hopefully give you some Christmas gift ideas.
