Easter Holiday Painting for Children

13 March 2008

Wondering what to do to keep children occupied during the school holidays? The Clay Studio in Christchurch will again be running its popular Kidz Painting Academy workshops during the school holidays. These are designed to inspire children to create pottery masterpieces through teaching them some simple techniques.

Four different workshops are running at 10am on Wednesdays and Fridays from 26 March until 18 April. These allow children to learn techniques including painting the Mad Hatter’s Teapot, Claying Around (fun with shaping and moulding clay), Lovely Bubbly (painting with bubbles) and painting a Sunflower dish.

Each workshop costs £12-15 with items returned glazed and fired within seven days. As places are limited on these workshops advance booking is necessary.

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.
