2015 Workshops Launched with a Valentine's Project

4 January 2015

The innovative Clay Studio in Christchurch has launched its 2015 Painting Academy Workshops with a project that allows you to create a stunning crystal heart that is ideal as a Valentine’s gift for a loved one. These are suitable for use as paperweights or wall hanging.  

Running on Thursday 22 January from 7-9pm, the Workshop includes all materials, tuition, glazing and firing. It is suitable for painters of all abilities from beginners to advanced and experienced painters. The crystal heart is painted using specialist crystal glazes that take on a whole new appearance after being fired in the on-site kiln. It is simple to complete and participants will learn how to use these specialised materials.

Mary Payne, Managing Director of The Clay Studio, noted how the Workshops are a perfect complement to normal pottery painting:

“Our Workshops have been very popular since we relaunched them in 2014. For some they are an introduction to pottery painting while more experienced painters like to expand their range of techniques. The Valentine’s Crystal Heart is an ideal project as it enables painters to create something required with no artistic skills required.” 

Workshops are held monthly, usually on a Thursday evening with daytime Workshops also available if there is sufficient demand. There is an inclusive cost of £25 for the Workshop (10% discount for Clay Friends members). Places are limited and booking is essential.

The Clay Studio is a contemporary pottery painting studio. We have a wide range of blank pottery pieces for painting which are fired and usually ready for collection within four days. The Clay Studio is ideal for parties such as hen parties, birthday parties or just the opportunity to get together and relax with friends and family. The Clay Studio is a licensed café with a varied menu that is locally sourced wherever possible.
