We run children’s parties, clubs and camps and are available to visit children’s groups, nurseries and schools. Booking is recommended for all our children’s activities and is essential for glass making and pottery making. All our childrens’ clubs include squash, materials and tuition in the cost. Our aim is to make these sessions fun and for the children to take home something both you and they are proud of and are happy to display. With the right materials and encouragement children will make something amazing.

Over the school holidays we run arts and crafts sessions for children and for parents and children to do together. The courses are run in our separate children’s room so you can still drop in and paint pottery without attending a course.
The sessions are supervised and run each day between 10.30-noon. If the children would prefer to do something else, we will try our best to accommodate their wishes, having cleared it with their parents first. Our aim with the holiday clubs is to make it fun.
You can find details of the upcoming clubs in the events section and on our facebook events listings, or you can give us a call.
