Celebrate your child's birthday with a 'make with clay' pottery party. Due to the present situation we are happy to run clay parties for up to 6 children so we can abide by the social distancing rules. (See below)
From the simple to the exotic, children from the age of 5 can experience the fun of clay by having a 'fun with clay' pottery party.
Children experience the use of clay and once the pieces have been created they add coloured decoration to their work. It is then left at the studio for firing and glazing and is ready approx 2 weeks later.
The birthday person makes a choice in advance of the party.
For the little ones we make simple shapes and for older children we can build on those simple ideas, allowing them freedom to express themselves whilst guiding them on the techniques.
Whatever the age and ability everyone produces a masterpiece to be proud of.
Parties can be arranged for Saturdays, after school and school holidays
1.5 hrs making and painting £120 for up to 6 children (sole use of the studio to enable social distancing). A Hand made ceramic party gift is available to order for each guest to take home at a cost of £2.50 presented in an organza bag.

Mosaic parties are not available at present due to covid
Mosaicing is an ancient art dating back to Greek and Roman times. It consists of small pieces of coloured components stuck to a pre-drawn board to produce a design. Once the glue is dry the gaps between the pieces are grouted to produce a final piece of work.
At A Touch of Clay you can try your hand at making your own mosaic with a Mosaic Making Party!
Mosaicing is very easy and there are pre-drawn boards at the studio for you to work from or you can bring your own design to transfer onto a blank board.
Give us a call now to book your party!
Birthday person chooses a theme in advance and a board is then designed by the children and adjusted where necessary by Jackie before the children add the mosaics. The mosaics are square but occasionally pieces may need to be cut into other shapes which is done by adults at the studio. Dads can also join in by cutting pieces.
The mosaics are left at the studio for grouting and can be collected 3 days later.
A party will require approx 2 hours and the cost is £120 for up to 6 per persons which includes all materials, use of studio, instruction, grouting and finishing off.
