Activities

Baby Hand and Foot Prints

Capture that special moment in time by creating painted ceramics.

 

Printed hand and foot prints can be made on a great selection of bisque.  You can either choose to decorate as many items yourself for the cost of a studio fee. Alternatively you can commission Happy Glaze to write a message, name or decorate the items for you for £6 per item.

 

Please note that babies under 1 year are recommended to create footprints and not hand prints.

 

Adult Masterclasses

Our adult masterclasses are held on the last Thursday of each month.  You don’t need to be an expert to join these classes, they are designed to be fun and will follow an informal paint-along format where you learn to create a specific design onto a particular piece of pottery.  Lots of fun in a creative, friendly environment with a glass of prosecco and a bowl of nibbles included.

Clay Imprints

A great way to capture a moment in time is to create clay imprints of your babies feet and hands.  Create your own permanent reminder of how cute their little toes and fingers are!

 

 

You can choose any footprints or handprints combination and and colour. We can either frame your clay pieces or provide with a velvet ribbon, ready for you to collect at a later date.

Holiday Workshops

During school holidays we hold family and drop-off workshops. The minimum age is 7 years old and prices are set depending on the activity.   Each workshop is a guided, step-by-step session on how to create something beautiful!  So far we have painted butterflies, Converse shoes and made plaques and bowls from clay.


These friendly workshops are a great activity for families and individuals alike.

Family Events

We run seasonal family event days throughout the year.   The day is themed to a particular event, such as Halloween or Christmas and are great fun for all the family.  We provide goody bags and hot drinks as well as a snack during these events, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Birthday Parties

We’d be delighted to host a birthday gathering here at our studio during one of our session times.  Our biggest table seats 10, which needs to include one supervising adult.  Alternatively we offer a take away package containing all you need for a successful paint-at-home party.

Groups

We host painting sessions for local nurseries, schools, businesses and uniformed groups in our studio, at their premises or over Zoom.  All sessions are tailored to each group and we’ve hosted Rainbows through to Explorers.

 

Among many designs, we’ve painted galaxy/alien mugs, ice cream beakers and Christmas decorations, each and every one as unique as the children. 

 

Our studio can seat a maximum of 26 painters and we can cater for any budget.

 

If you’d like to discuss options and dates, do get in touch.

Adult only late night evenings

Our weekly adult only session runs every Wednesday and Thursday from 6pm until 9pm. They are a 3 hour session for the usual £6 studio fee plus the cost of your pottery.  

We cater for individuals looking for some mindful ‘me’ time, as well as groups of co-workers or like-minded friends looking for an inspirational space to have a chat whilst being creative.  

 

You are able to bring your own booze during these sessions, as well as nibbles (no hot food please).  Our customers love these evenings, so it’s advisable to book!  It’s always a lot of fun and you’ll be amazed at what you and your friends can achieve. 

 

To book a session, either call the studio or use our booking form.

 

Paint at Home Ideas

If you’d prefer to paint ceramics at home, we offer a paint-at-home box to take away. Our take away box contains enough brushes, sponges and palettes for up to 4 painters and costs £10 to hire, plus a £10 refundable deposit. 

 

We suggest visiting the studio where you’ll be able to select your pottery items from our shelves, plus choose your 12 colours.

Commissions

We offer a commission service of £6 per piece to write a name, message or decorate to your design.   This works well for baby foot or hand prints.  We’ve turned prints into snowmen, flowers, tractors and reindeer and many more.  Just let us know when you’re here what you’d like.  We can also make suggestions of popular combinations too.

 

We can also decorate a piece for a special occasion, just have a chat when you’re in the studio and we’ll give you a cost.
