Summer Holiday Workshops

The Summer holidays give us the chance to play with different media and teach different crafts to the children. Our workshops are all designed for age 8 and over but younger children are welcome to join in if an adult stays to help!

Pottery painting, decopatch and foam clay is available all day, every day. The studio is open whilst the workshops are taking place. Pottery painted in The Shed will be glazed and fired and ready for collection one week after painting. Decopatch and foam clay can be taken away on the day.

Unsupervised ‘play with clay’ is available every day from 10am-1pm unless a supervised workshop is scheduled. Cost is £5 for a kilo of clay, includes use of all tools. A member of staff will help if available but this cannot be guaranteed. Jeanette has usually got jobs for them to do! Please check the calendar for more details.

This year our workshops naturally include decopatch, foam clay and pottery painting – but also fabric painting, cupcake decorating and clay work. Lots of fun for everyone!

Parents are encouraged to leave their children with us for the duration of the workshops (as long as the children are age 8yrs and over). You are welcome to stay if you want to but in many cases (with apologies) there will not be a seat for you!

All workshops are 2hrs long, run from 11am-1pm and include lunch (drink, sandwich, crisps, fruit). They are incredible value for money as we’ve kept the price down to £12 a head. In many cases the materials are valued at almost twice that price. Bargain! AND if you book 5 workshops, you can choose a 6th for free.
