New Workshops Launched for Spring and Early Summer

9 April 2015

The innovative Clay Studio in Christchurch has launched a series of Workshops for spring and early summer that allow you to develop new painting skills that are simple and effective. No artistic skill or experience is required for these, just enthusiasm to try something new.  

Our Workshops run on Thursday evening each month from 7-9pm with a weekday workshop added from May onwards for those who would prefer to come during the daytime. The Workshops include all materials, tuition, glazing and firing. They are suitable for painters of all abilities from beginners to advanced and experienced painters.

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. These three new workshops are designed for the summer and we will have some more seasonal projects over the next few months.”

Our April Workshop is on Thursday 16 April from 7-9pm. Painters will learn some techniques and use some specialist materials to create a spring flower clay canvas. The inclusive cost of this Workshop is £25 or £30 depending on the choice of clay canvas.

For May we are revisiting a very popular piece. The large beach hut plate teaches a number of different techniques to produce a beautiful platter that certainly is representative of this area. The cost of this course is £30 plus our usual Studio Fee. The course runs Thursday 28 May at 7pm and Wednesday 27 May at 11am.

The June Workshop teaches how to use specialist glazes to create a stunning peacock feather design on a tray. The cost of this course is £22 plus our usual Studio Fee. The course runs Thursday 18 June at 7pm and Wednesday 24 June at 11am.

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.
