Looking for a Unique and Special Gift? Have Your Face Painted onto a Dinner Plate during Christchurch Christmas Market

21 November 2016

Hand-painted pottery always makes a special and unique present. This year, The Clay Studio in Christchurch is offering the chance to have your picture painted onto a dinner plate by top local caricature artist Paul Tyler. These are tremendous fun and will make a great talking point at your Christmas party. You can also surprise someone with such a special gift.

Paul will be in residence at The Clay Studio in the High Street between 2pm and 5pm on Saturday 26 November during the town’s popular Christmas market. He will create your caricature on a plate in either black & white or colour. Alternatively, bring a photograph and he will create a caricature of friends, family members, work colleagues, etc. Prices vary according to black & white or colour and the number of faces included.

The plates are glazed and fired and ready for collection from The Clay Studio in just one week. The Clay Studio is also able to arrange delivery for a small fee.

Mary Payne of The Clay Studio noted why unique gifts have become so popular:

“We have found that many people look to paint their own gifts to give a present that is unique and personal. More and more people are creating their own gifts as an alternative to a mass-produced product from the high street. This initiative is an opportunity to have a gift professionally painted that is both high quality, great value and fun.”

The Clay Studio is open 6-7 days every week with late night opening on Thursdays. It is an ideal place to relax as a family as there is something for everyone to paint in a relaxed, friendly, creative atmosphere. The staff are always available to provide guidance and encouragement. Hand-painted pottery is ideal for unique Christmas gifts and decorations.

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.
