We offer two options for care homes, groups of elderly people or groups with special needs.
1) Make ‘n Paint sessions. Our Make ‘n Paint sessions are split over two visits. The first visit is making an item from clay which is then taken away dried and fired. During the second visit the item made is painted. The two visits need to be at least two weeks apart to allow time for drying and firing. Tuition is provided with help and step by step instructions throughout. The cost is £24 per person, this covers both visits, clay, firing, paints and glazes as well as second firing. Finished items are returned usually two weeks after the second visit. Minimum of 6 people.
2) The second option is pottery painting, where we offer a choice of either a 22cm Tea Plate, Cereal Bowl, Standard Mug or Trinket Box (one item per person). An introduction and instruction in different decorating techniques is given plus help throughout the session. Painted items are taken away for firing and returned usually within two weeks of the session date. The cost is £15 per person, minimum of 6 people.
Sessions for either option usually last around 1.5 hours.
Pottery painting is a relaxing and creative activity that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy. The wide range of bisque we offer make useful items and ideal gifts for family and friends.
