What to Bring

Mostly bring your friends, beyond that, its up to you.  You are welcome to bring anything you like to eat and drink and anything you would like to eat or drink with (cups, forks, etc.).  Be as elaborate or as simple as you like.

What can you do:

Pottery Painting from £13 per person, maximum 36 guests.

We have any number of items at various price points starting at £10 (plus our £3 per person evening studio fee) so your guests are free to spend as much as they are comfortable with.  Our prices are all inclusive, so there are no surprises at the end. We allow 2 hours for this workshop.

Screen Printing £24 per person, maximum 14 guests.

During this two hour workshop each guest will create their own design and print it onto a tote bag, t-shirt or tea towel.  Items will be ready to take home on the same day. Approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Knicker Decorating, £25 per person, maximum 24 guests.

We provided a selection of plain pants with something to suit everyone, including lots of laughs and cheeky fun along the way. We can show you various techniques to pimp your pants whether you are experienced with crafty things or not, there will be something new to learn and do in this session. Try appliqué, making ribbons bows, attach lace, add some sparkle with sequins, bows or buttons. No two pairs ever look the same… let your imagination run wild, or we can help you with some creative ideas. We will be on hand throughout to guide you through, or help provide inspiration. We allow 2 hours for this workshop.

Canvas Painting £35 per person, maximum 18 guests.

On the evening of your night out, we’ll all paint the same design but rest assured everyone will have very individual results.   Plan on painting for 2 to 3 hours.

We provide all the supplies needed to complete a canvas and after a few hours of fun and laughter each guest will leave with a work of art they have created themselves. This activity is designed to get people to have fun painting and our easy to follow system removes the guesswork and challenge from the drawing and painting equation. If you can steadily hold a pencil then your success will be nearly guaranteed. Canvases will be ready to collect the next day (they need to dry overnight). Approximately 3 hours.

Screen Printing & Pottery Wheel, £45 per person, maximum 14 guests.

Same as the screenprinting workshop, but each guest will also get to throw a pot on the potters wheel with an experienced potter. The pot will be dip glazed, fired and ready for collection at a later date. Approximately 2 hours.

Knicker Making, £45 per person, maximum 12 guests.

Learn how to make your own knickers! In this great fun workshop we’ll teach you how to make your own cute cotton knickers, from cutting the fabric to constructing them and stitching the elastic (the tricky bit!) We’ll also have a selection of trimmings for you to choose from if you’d like to adorn your pants!  We will be using sewing machines and there are some tricky bits so be prepared to concentrate! Approximately 3 hours.

Glass Fusing £65 per person, maximum 14 guests.

Designed for complete beginners.  Approximately 3 hours. You will aim to make 4 coaster or small tile sized projects (10cm square).
