It's party time at The Clay Studio

11 October 2007

Parties are all about having fun but they are so much better if you have a permanent reminder of the good times that you had. The Clay Studio is already showing that is ideal for parties for any age and for any occasion. These are not just birthday parties but also hen parties, office parties, christening or baby naming parties or just a group of friends getting together.

Larger groups can be accommodated in our separate Gallery Room where we will assign a member of staff to look after you, providing encouragement and all the help you want. You can choose to go “à la carte”, choosing any piece of pottery from our range of over 150 items or, for children’s parties, we offer three different levels of party to suit different budgets and party visitor numbers. These range from Fabulous Five to our top of the range Superhero or Fairy Princess party. All pottery, paints, glazing and firing are included. For Fabulous Five and Great Eight party food is available while it is included in the Superhero or Princess parties.

Once you have created your masterpiece, leave it with us and we will glaze and fire it in one of our kilns. It will then be ready for collection within one week of the party, wrapped and bagged with the painter’s name.

For children’s birthday parties why not paint an extra plate and have all the children sign it in paint as an additional reminder of the party for the birthday boy or girl. For ten or more we will provide this at no extra charge. For hen parties with over ten visitors we paint a special hen plate for you all to sign.

Although we can accommodate several parties every day, advance booking is necessary to secure your place. Besides, you need time to send out the invitations.

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.
