They are held in my workshop on a suitable afternoon usually from 3-4.30pm for up to 10 children from around 5-6 years and upwards.
I suggest what we'll make in advance based on the age of the children. The children then each design and make their work using prepared clay.
We have a break for fruit juice and crisps and a run around the garden, then we return to the workshop to decorate our creations by painting with special underglaze colours.
I show the children the kiln workshop where their work will be fired and explain how it will be transformed from soft clay to hard ceramic. I biscuit and glaze fire the pots and they are usually ready for collection in 4-6 weeks.
I charge £11 per child booked for the party (minimum party cost £66). A 10% deposit is requested on booking. Please confirm the numbers attending a day or two before the party. I will then prepare for that number and charge accordingly.
For baby sisters & brothers I make momento hand and footprints with the child's name written on the ceramic. I charge £15 for a single print and £20 for a double. I also make & decorate named baby mugs & plates to commission. I charge from £15/item.
