Our toddler session is back! - Tots, Tiles and Treats! A fantastic one for introducing you and your pre-schooler to pottery painting.
This is not a guided session, but very much lead by your child and the interaction between them and you as their grown-up, in a relaxed and fun environment. We are on-hand of course for anything you may need, including encouragement (and not forgetting the tidying...how amazing to walk away from the mess!)
Pottery painting together, regardless of how little they are, is a very interactive and special activity with benefits for you both; your little one will be improving motor skills; learning colours; enjoying sensory discovery through use of different tools and equipment; working on conversational skills through turn-taking; building independence and confidence with the decisions they make for themselves, through the freedom to explore.
This session builds upon our previous popular toddler sessions and now also includes a well deserved treat for you!
Is this session for me?
You can of course come pottery painting at ANY time and choose ANY pot from our huge range! But we understand that adults may be wary of bringing little ones and unsure of what to expect. With that in mind, these sessions are ideal for those who haven’t been before; designed to introduce you and your toddler to pottery painting - to reassure you that you need not be nervous of being around breakable pots and to give you a glimpse into how great it can feel to leave mess behind for someone else to clear away! 😊
They’re also a great way to meet other parents and carers of youngsters in a relaxed, sociable environment. We have in place, everything you may need to tend to your little one whilst here including dedicated family washroom and a safe outdoor garden with chalkboard to stretch their little legs in!
* blank ceramic tile to paint together
* unlimited juice and biscuit for painting toddler
* pot of tea and cake for one parent/carer
* Meet Kenny the Kiln in our workshop tour
* all materials/equipment you will need (Including aprons!)
* access to our inspiration station, alongside extra stamps and equipment specifically chosen with your pre-schooler in mind
* glazing and kiln firing of your tile (To collect around 10 days afterwards)
This session is offered at exceptional value with the opportunity to sample all we offer, including the cakes! We hope to encourage you to give it a go...we of course hope to see you coming back time and again to create other pots (and sample other treats!) once you have the painting bug!
To make this accessible for as many families as possible, we ask that no more than 2 supervisory adults per painting child attend for this offer.
Access to the value of Tots Tiles and Treats is by PRE-BOOKING ONLY please. That’s not to say you can’t just rock up and paint whatever you like with your toddler during these times. You are welcome to 🤗 However, for those taking advantage of Tots Tiles and Treats, we do need to prepare for your arrival and places are limited, so booking and paying in advance is essential please. If in any doubt, just ask 👍
Please see our FACEBOOK page and head to our events section where you will find dates for upcoming sessions. These sessions are term-time only and on random dates in the hope that we can encourage as many of you as may be possible.
We cannot wait to meet you!
