Spooky, Scary Things at The Clay Studio

1 October 2008

With Halloween fast approaching The Clay Studio in Christchurch transforms from a relaxing, inspirational studio to a darker place where witches, ghosts and spirits feel at ease.

With the Halloween festival becoming increasingly popular, The Clay Studio is proud to launch a range of activities for all the family that will be running during October.

Our Painting Academy courses continue but with a Halloween theme. There are two opportunities to paint a special Halloween plate that is ideal for serving hot pasties or just for decoration. This course runs on 11 and 15 October. A brand new project is a light-up Halloween pumpkin lantern. This is designed for the family to paint together as a shared experience. The family painting workshop takes place on Sunday 26 October.

Our Kidz Painting Academy workshops run during school holidays as usual. For the October half-term we will have a Claying Around clay modelling workshop as well as two Halloween-themed workshops that allow children to paint a ghost mug or Halloween pumpkin plate. These will be great fun, educational and the children will have something not only to be proud of but that they can use every day.

Our Halloween programme culminates with the Kidz Halloween Party on 31 October. This was sold out in 2007 and so we are advising early booking. There will be prizes for the best fancy dress as well as apple bobbing, a Witch’s Blood cocktail, Ghoulish Grub alongside the pottery painting. Tickets are available for children and adults. Our full range of pottery is available for painting including special Halloween items. Our food and beverages menu is also available all evening.  

The Clay Studio is a contemporary pottery painting studio, offering visitors the opportunity to paint their own pottery and learn different painting and decorative effects through the Painting Academy and by having trained staff always on-hand. Alongside the painting is The Clay Studio Café which offers food and beverages, sourced, wherever possible, from local Dorset and Hampshire producers.
