Once set up, we take 2 guests at a time to experience making a pot on the potters wheel.
You will make a pot on the wheel with assistance before having some time to have a go by youself. You then re-join the group and continue your handmade creation.
Your creations will be simply glazed by sharon, ready for collection 3-4 weeks later. If you wish to paint your items yourself, it is £5 per person - Add an additional hour to your party time.
We don't recommend our parties for children under 6 years.
You may bring a Party Cake with you - Add 20 minutes to your party time. Candles are permitted but unfortunatley any kind of Sparklers are not permitted.
Balloon & Banners are put up if appropriate.
We dont provide Party food sorry - should you wish food for after your party, the Barn Cafe (next to the potter) has a fabulous party room where they can cater buffets or afternoon teas at very resonsable prices. Barn cafe - Chris 07305353848
Unfortunatley we havent the space in the studio for you to bring your own food. Free Jugs of juice, Hot drinks & Biscuits will be available during your party.
Some of our Parties have a set price which covers up to 10 guests. This is the price you pay for these parties for any number of quests between 1-10. Additional guests are charged individually, the cost of additional guests is dependant upon your chosen package.
After your party, the pots are left with us for firing and are collected at a later date. Each pot will be named & individually wrapped.
