Working for myself and from my own home means that I am able to offer a pottery painting or clay workshop that suits your individual requirements.
I can accommodate groups of up to 8 people at my home and also hold pop-up events at The Leaf & Bean Cafe in Winchester. Alternatively I can come to your home or chosen venue to run a group or party.
Both pottery painting and clay workshops are suitable for all ages and are great for children’s parties, hen parties, baby showers and ladies’ nights:
- With some adult guidance a pre-schooler can enjoy squashing and making marks in clay or use sponges and stencils to create a painted masterpiece.
- Children from school age are great at making all sorts of painted and clay creations.
- Adults can get completely absorbed for a couple of hours doing something completely different and letting their creativity flow.
Paint Your Own Pottery:
I offer a range of “bisque” items to paint such as plates, mugs, tiles, bowls and various cut-out decorations. If there is something specific that you would like to paint, I can either make it or order it before hand.
I offer guidance and suggestions for decoration techniques and will show you various ways to decorate your item using brushes, sponges, decorating bottles, stencils, templates and fingers!
Please take a look at the gallery pages for inspiration.
There are endless possibilities for things you can make with clay. I can design a workshop to suit you or I hold various workshops throughout the year. Examples of clay projects are buildings, plaques/pictures/tiles, mugs, flower pots and creatures. Please see the gallery pages for photos.
Workshops can be adapted to suit adults and children – you can create something wonderful whatever age you are!
Adult Pottery Classes:
I hold regular short courses at my home in Colden Common. The courses are generally held over three weeks with each week’s session lasting an hour and a half. The cost is £50 and includes two medium sized glazed and fired items. There is a small cost for additional items. Each course has a project theme but this comes with plenty of scope to let your creativity flow to make a wide variety of different items. See events page for dates.
Paint Your Own Pottery Parties are great for both adults and children and work really well for a hen party or baby shower activity as well as for birthdays. Prices start at £12 per person – please contact me for more details.
Prices for Clay Workshops vary depending on the project and the size of the group – please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
