Story Time at The Studio
Our 5 weekly classes are a wonderful, creative opportunity for little people to enjoy story time before painting a piece of pottery inspired by the book they've just enjoyed.
Early childhood is a key time to promote your child's creative abilities and these relaxed and informal read and paint sessions will provide stimulation and engage their imaginations. We start with a fun story and then the child will paint a related ceramic item. Each piece of pottery will be fired ready for collection the following week. There will be tea and coffee on tap for the accompanying adult and an opportunity to chat with other adults!
The sessions will run for 5 weeks on Wednesday mornings from 10am to 11.30pm. The course costs £60 per child for 5 weeks (£12 per session).
