The Painting Academy launches autumn programme

13 August 2007

Learning to paint pottery provides you with skills that you can use to astound your friends and family. What’s more, it’s great fun and makes an ideal evening out. The Painting Academy at The Clay Studio in Christchurch has now published its autumn 2007 programme of painting modules. These modules teach a wide range of simple but effective pottery painting skills and are great fun to undertake.

Each module is a series of six two-hour workshops. Many of these are run evenings and during the day. Each workshop will teach a different pottery painting skill or several skills. The following week you can collect your piece of pottery glazed and fired.

The autumn courses are themed. Choose one module or feel free to come along to more than one. At this time of year, this is an excellent way to create unique Christmas presents. From late November we will be running a six-week Christmas pottery workshop and a one-day workshop to create a large Santa platter.

Each six-week module costs just £45. You choose your piece of unpainted pottery or bisque each week and there is a 25% discount for selecting the Studio’s recommended piece for the week. In addition, members of Clay Friends are eligible for 10% discount on any module fee. 

The Clay Studio is all about having fun but at the same time learning useful skills. Painting pottery helps everyone to express their creativity while having a fun time.

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.
