First Impressions

Create a lasting memento of your child’s early days with The Clay Studio’s First Impressions mementoes. First Impressions can be undertaken in different ways with very different finishes.

     

Clay Imprints

This is an impression of the child’s hand and footprints in clay. We use “wet” clay to make the print which then is allowed to dry naturally. It is then fired in our kiln. We paint it and add writing according to your wishes before it is glazed and refired. The process takes about five-six weeks but may be longer during holiday periods. The price can include bespoke framing.

We undertake Clay Imprints on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Booking is essential.

Last date for Clay Imprints or Plaster Outprints for completion before Christmas is 29 November 2018.

  • Double print framed: £89 (Standard size to fit baby prints)

  • Unframed prices: double - £55

  • Note that for other framing options such as different sizes, multiple prints or the inclusion of photographs we recommend using a specialist framer.

  • Special options are available such as triple prints. Please ask for a quote for this.

Plaster Outprints

This option uses a mould to make an impression of the child’s hand and footprint. The plaster cast is then made from this. We then paint it and add writing according to your instructions. The process takes about five-six weeks but may be longer during holiday periods. The price includes bespoke framing so you can choose the frame and surrounds to suit your decor.

We undertake Plaster Outprints on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Booking is essential.

Painted Memories

This allows you to paint the child’s hand and footprints on almost any pottery item at The Clay Studio. Typical pieces are plates, mugs, photo frames and vases. A set of painted prints with a personal message makes a very special present for relatives or friends. Pieces are normally available for collection in four days.

  • Costs are the usual "per painter" Studio Fee and the price of the items you decide to paint.

Silver Clay Jewellery

It is now possible to create unique jewellery that incorporates your baby or toddler's feet or hands. Fine Silver pendants are an original gift which you will enjoy giving as a gift as much as receiving one, or simply have one made for yourself to treasure the memory of when your child was little. 

Choose from cuff links, pendants, key rings, tie bars, lapel pins and charm bracelets.

We are now able to supply silver clay jewellery with gold inlays.

An appointment is not required for this service. Completed pieces are supplied in a presentation box and are ready for collection in around two weeks.

Leather Key Fobs

We can now create personalised leather key fobs that include your baby's hand or footprints with their names.

Each key fob is £45 and is available usually within two weeks. No appointment is needed for this service.

Mother & Baby Day

At The Clay Studio we have designated every Wednesday Mother & Baby Day (Excluding Dorset and Hampshire school holidays). While you are free to visit every day, Wednesday is a day to meet other young mothers and relax over a coffee and more.

If you wish to paint on Wednesdays then there is a 50% discount on our normal Studio Fee.
