Christmas? It’s October!
We know, there are exciting times before Christmas arrives...but we also know how the dreaded Christmas shopping can bite us in the bum, if we aren’t prepared! Each year we marvel at the forethought of customers who start as early as August (don’t rub your eyes...you read that right!), visiting every couple of weeks to work their way down their Christmas shopping list.
This Christmas, in addition to our adult only evening events we also will be open until 7pm every Wednesday between 21st November to 12th December. These late night opening dates are ‘everyone welcome’ so that everyone from individuals to families who wish to pop along after work or school to paint Xmas gifts, can do so. The late night opening evenings are PRE BOOK ONLY please.
Aside from our regular term time opening, we are also open 10-5pm Fri 21st, Sat 22nd and again 10-4 on our last open day on 23rd December. If you have already ticked off all the names on your gift list, this gives you a welcome opportunity to relax and take time to build your own Christmas spirit, by painting with family and friends.
Christmas shopping need not be stressful! Creating your own gifts for loved ones is a win, win! You get to experience the pleasure of painting ceramics, whilst they receive the warmth of the thought that has gone into creating this unique gift!
Good old Saint Nick
You fly around, thinking up ways to make everyone smile during the silly season...wondering what to get for the relative or friend who seemingly has everything they need! Along comes Christmas Day and who gets the credit? Ho, ho, no!
Get into the spirit
So, why not take a little time out for yourself and really enjoy the spirit of Christmas...the true pleasure of knowing that the ‘one off’ that created that beaming grin, was hand created by you! That special person is unique...it’s why you love them! So perhaps they deserve something a little special to demonstrate how much they mean to you.
You can come pottery painting anytime, of course you can, however we also have some seasonal sessions called Pots and Prints coming up in November and December. These are designed to offer a helping hand to parents and carers who may looking to turn those painted hand and foot prints into fabulous ceramic gifts for loved ones! Details are here
This year we are also offering a limited number of sessions whereby you can have your child’s print captured in clay, and turned into a wonderful ceramic tree hanging decoration for yourself or as a treasured gift. See HERE for full details!
Maybe you would prefer to experience pottery painting together? Great idea! Why not buy them a voucher instead, so that you can make plans to spend quality time in the New Year...together! Vouchers can be used for any of our products or services so they are not limited to what they may want to do.
Decorating the home for the season can be quite special. Out from the loft come those trimmings, some of which may have been passed down for generations! You could create your own! Capturing baby prints on hanging decorations or making your own baubles to match your perfect setting...limitless idea that build a lovely legacy and make memories that can last a lifetime.
You can even couple the making of those Christmas gifts with a seasonal catch up with your friends, or as a different way to enjoy a date night! In the run up to Christmas our popular adult only evenings are themed and include Christmas punch and a selection of mini puddings to help fuel your imagination! You can bring a bottle of your favorite tipple and really relax in an informal setting with as much or as little help on hand as you may need. Info about Pots, Punch & Puddings is here
All wrapped up!
So...let’s get started! Let’s make Christmas 2018 the most enjoyable yet! For you and for the lucky people who receive your gifts!
