Pottery Party for Kids
Hooray! You've found a super unique party.
When the littluns turn up, they'll be given matching jumpsuits and name badges, before being shown around the studio and introduced to all the equipment.
Their first step will be to make their slabs of clay, which will be done by jumping up and down on two peices of wood, with their clay sandwiched in between.
They'll then choose from a variety of templates, which will help them quickly build a large, functional vessle. Once they've constructed their vessel, we'll get the texture tools out and begin modelling onto their pieces, adding faces, hair and any other adoration they fancy. We'll then grab the coloured slip for them to start adding some colour to their pots.
Once they've finished their peices and their session is almost over, they'll choose a little souviner from our micro pottery box to take home with them on the day.
There beautiful pots will be slowly dried out, before being fired and glazed ready for collection from the studio within 6 - 8 weeks.
We need at least 2 adults to stay at the studio during the party but up to 6 are welcome to hang around.
Theres a small seating area at the opposite end of the studio which you're all welcome to make your self comfortable in. There's plenty of tea and coffee to keep you going.
You're also welcome to have a play around on the big wheels while there and have a nose at what the littleuns are crafting.
Sometimes pots explode in the fire. This can happen for a number of reasons and while we dry out the pots super slowly to try and avoid cracks and explosions from happening, sometimes the kiln gods are not looking upon us kindly and lovely pots don't make it through the process.
Theres not a huge amount we can do once they've gone so the unlucky potter will be able to choose a commiseration pot from within the studio.
There isn't any! We're smack bang in the centre of town so you'll need to plan out your parking arrangments before coming to the party.
You're going to be emailed some lovely pottery themed invites to pass out to the lucky party guests!
