Painting pottery for Pudsey Bear

3 November 2007

Painting pottery is always great fun for all ages and abilities. Now The Clay Studio is offering visitors the opportunity to have fun painting pottery while helping disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

This year’s BBC Children in Need appeal takes place on Friday 16 November to raise funds to help disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. The Clay Studio will be open all day and will not be closing until 9pm. During this time, we will donate every painter’s Studio Fee to the Children in Need appeal. What’s more if you only fancy a cup of our superb coffee then we will donate £1 for every coffee sold to the appeal.

With Christmas approaching, this is an excellent excuse to paint presents for family and friends or even something for yourself. A piece of hand-painted pottery is unique and will also be special. Our trained staff are always present to give you any help and encouragement that you require. We will ensure that you go away having achieved more than you felt you were capable of.

We have around 150 different items to paint from plates and mugs to money boxes and seasonal Christmas pottery. You are sure to find something to suit your ability, budget and wishes.

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 snacks and beverages, sourced, wherever possible, from local Dorset and Hampshire producers.
