POTTERY PAINTING PARTIES
These parties last for 2 hours. The children will spend around 1hour and 15 minutes painting (we are flexible with this time, if the children are older, they might prefer to spend more time painting which is absolutely fine) and you will then have 30 minutes to feed them and sing "Happy Birthday".
We do not provide catering, so you are welcome to bring your own food and drinks. Ordering pizzas is very popular, as well as providing each child with their own individual lunch box which contains a sandwich, crisps and drink. Drinks will need to be in cartons or bottles to avoid spillages and damaging pieces. You are allowed to bring a birthday cake, but we have found, post-Covid, that cupcakes are easier.
To have a private party with exclusive use of the studio, you will need to have a minimum of 10 painters and the maximum will depend on the age of the children.
The only adults who stay are the birthday child's parents/carers plus one/two helpers if necessary. All other parents drop and go and enjoy 2 hours of peace and quiet! The staff will supervise and control the painting, so all the adults need to do is have a good time and take photographs.
The cost is £18 per painter and there is a selection of pottery to choose from, including - plates, mugs, bowls, tea light holders, trinket boxes, money boxes, figurines and more!
All of the pieces are glazed and fired, then individually wrapped and put into bags with the child's name on it ready to be collected from the studio. We also do a personalised tile for the birthday child which will have all of the fingerprints of their guests on it as a keepsake.
FOAM CLAY PARTIES
These parties run for 2 hours. The children will create their pieces for around 1 hour and 30 minutes, so the only food required will be small snacks and drinks, but there will be time for a birthday cake. The drinks should be in bottles/cartons and the snacks should only be small and we would recommend cupcakes.
The minimum number of guests for these parties is 10 and it costs £18 per child. The maximum number of guests we can accommodate will depend on the age of the children.
The pieces will be taken home on the day. Whilst the party guests are eating, the staff will wrap them up. Once home, the pieces should be left to dry over night to allow the foam clay to fully stick to the piece. The foam clay is only suitable for non-food items, i.e. the children will only be able to use it on it on decorative pieces.
We will also create a special tile as a keepsake from the day. This will have to be collected by the birthday child's parents up to two-weeks later.
CLAY PINCH POT PARTIES
These parties run for two hours. The children will make the piece for the first hour, allow it to dry for fifteen minutes and then spend the rest of their time painting their piece.
Whilst the clay is drying, you are welcome to give the children some small snacks and bottles/cartons of drink. Try to avoid anything salty/greasy as it can react with the paints.
The minimum number of guests required for these parties is 10 and it costs £25 per child. The maximum number of guests will depend on the children. These parties are only available for children aged eight years and over.
These pieces will take longer to return to you as they have to be fired twice. But once they are ready, they will be gift wrapped with each child's name on. We will create a special tile for the birthday child as a keepsake from the day.
Clay pieces are particularly fragile and there is always a risk of breakages. We will do our upmost to keep all of the pieces safe and will attempt to fix any damages.
