Keeping the children amused and inspired over half term?

31 January 2007

How do you ensure that children are occupied over half term and, at the same time, keep their brains stimulated and encourage their creativity? 

The Clay Studio in Christchurch is open seven days each week and has a new range of unpainted pottery or bisque to help amuse and stimulate our younger visitors. This includes new money boxes to help them save their pennies, decorative items as well as functional pottery such as plates and mugs that allows them to exercise their creativity. It is not necessary to have any artistic skills.

Kidz Painting Academy workshops will be running Wednesday 21 February and Friday 23 February from 10am for two hours. Each workshop will teach some simple techniques for pottery painting and the children can collect their masterpieces around three days later. Places in the Kidz Painting Academy are available on a first-come, first-served basis and so advanced booking is advised.

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.
