Organising a Hen Party? Looking for something a bit different to do during the daytime with your girlfriends? Perhaps you have evening plans but need something more relaxing to enjoy during the daytime, without spending a fortune!
Our Potty Hen Parties give you and your guests the opportunity for some informal fun at something hands on in our ceramics studio, good company and of course you get to make keepsakes that will remind you of this wonderful occasion.
You can choose to simply decorate plates, mugs or other pre-made items or you can try your hands at making character mugs, trinket boxes or a whole range of other items. You can also include a mini-taster session at pot throwing to make the day that bit more memorable!
If you want to be more practical as well as creative and make something to use at the wedding itself, why not bring a group of friends, a bottle of wine, plenty of enthusiasm and a few ideas and make your own place setting or card embellishments, ring dishes, little ceramic wedding favours, napkin holders and wine glass decorations or even your very own, uniquely individual ceramic wedding cake topper? Little mementos that you and your guests will treasure for ever! (Please remember you will need to allow 3-4 wks before the wedding if you want to make items to use on the day.)
The normal procedure is to make the pots on one visit then come back to glaze them (either individually to suit or as a group) once they have dried and been fired. 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 paint with acrylic (or similar) paints at home. Alternatively they can ask to use air drying clay and acrylic paints then they can take their pots home on the day (please note the finish will not be the same as for fully fired and glazed pots).
Buffet catering / sandwich platters can also be provided on request.
COST: starts at £10 per head per 2hr hand-building session plus £5 per head when you return to glaze your work. Pot throwing is £15 per head. All prices may vary according to individual requirements. Sandwich platters start at £6 per head. Please book in plenty of time to ensure availability. Minimum booking is for 8 places.
