Birthdays for all ages

The generational appeal of clay was highlighted by two recent birthday party workshops. This one year old’s family chose to make coil pots and pinch pot sculpture to mark their baby’s 1st.

Creative family fun

Loving this recent testimonial from a mum who brought her parents and daughter for a bit of intergenerational creativity to celebrate Grandad’s birthdayPottery fun for all the family whatever age:

Thank you for a wonderful day. Dad said it is a day he will remember for the rest of his life. He said  that the venue and kind and friendly people made it so relaxing and such a pleasurable experience. I am making a photo book as a souvenir of the day to give to him on his birthday and was wondering if you could send me a few of the pics that you took. 

I was fortunate to see the photo book – lovely stuff!
