Kids' Pottery Party
£15 per child
Weekends by appointment | 3 hours | Age 6 upwards
About the party
Cáit can provide bespoke pottery party experiences to suit the interests of your child and their friends (10 child minimum, 12 child maximum). Choose from one of the following: Animal, Food or Character themes, and learn how to make Dishes, Lanterns, Boxes with Lids and more.
Your child and their friends will each create and decorate their own clay item during the experience. A demonstration will be provided at the beginning and support and assistance throughout. Simple projects (i.e. dishes and flat hanging items) can be completed in about an hour, however, for more complex makes (i.e. lanterns and boxes), please allow at least 1.5 - 2 hours for your child to successfully complete their work.
Cáit requires half an hour to set up at the beginning, and help from the children and adults to tidy up at the end. Therefore, the total time required will be around 3 hours.
The children's work will be fired and ready to collect from Cáit's studio @ The Base, Greenham, two weeks after the party.
Each child will be provided with a poncho-style apron, 500g clay, a wide range of non-toxic glaze colours, all necessary tools, brushes, sponges, tubs, as well as a wash station. Their work will get fired in a special ceramics oven called a kiln and be ready to collect from Cáit's studio two weeks after the date of the party.
What's not included
Cáit is happy to discuss how to work around the schedule of your child's special day however, please note that her costs don't include: food, venue hire, or childcare. Cáit requests that at least two adults are present to help throughout the clay session.
Weekends, mornings or afternoons, by arrangement.
About the Teacher
Cáit graduated from Ceramics at Glasgow School of Art in 2006. She is a fully qualified and registered primary school teacher as of 2015. She has been teaching pottery regularly since 2017. She loves the opportunity to share her passion for mud and fire and help others have the opportunity to get their hands on some clay and learn the skills needed to create their own pottery.
Cáit can travel to your venue for an additional charge based on mileage, or can hire the Lookout Studio at, The Base, Communications Road, Greenham Business Park, Greenham, RG19 6HN.
A full refund can only be given within 14 days from the initial date of booking. You can reschedule your party provided I am given at least 7 days notice before your party date. Regrettably, I am unable to change any bookings if LESS than 7 days notice is given.
