(adult or child)
Whether you are looking for a memorable children or adults party, or perhaps you are interested in a team building activity, hen party, coffee morning or group activity we have the facilities and projects to make your party one to remember! We can arrange for ceramic painting or your guests can visit the pottery studio and make their own mugs, pots and other items.
The normal procedure is to make the pots on one visit then come back to glaze them once they have dried and been fired. This can be done either as a group or individuals can join one of our Tuesday or Wednesday drop-in sessions independently and at their convenience.
Once glazed, the pots will then be fired a second time before being ready for collection.
For individuals not able to come back, you can either glaze their items for them or simply collect the bisque fired item and then they can paint with acrylic (or similar) paints at home. Alternatively you can ask to use air drying clay and acrylic paints or paint pre-made items then they can take their pots home on the day (please note the finish will not be the same when acrylics are used as for fully fired and glazed pots).
If you would like to add an extra bit of fun to the day, with four potters wheels in the studio we can also arrange for mini pot throwing tasters within the session where everyone can attempt to throw a pot.
We can normally accommodate 15 people in the studio for a team/group session. If you need more spaces, we can split the group into two and offer an alternative creative activity for one group then swap them bringing the group together for short breaks or lunch. We also have a meeting room that you can hire should you require it or wish to organise your own alternative activity for the waiting group.
Buffet catering / sandwich platters can also be provided on request or you can book a lunchtime or evening meal at our onsite Thai restaurant.
