Clay and Play

Clay and Play is a great place to visit and its not just for children.  Why not discover your creative side, there are a large selection of items for you to paint, vases, mugs, plates, piggy banks to name just a few.  Either decorate an item as a gift for someone or a gift to yourself.  So how does it work?  Firstly A Studio fee of £2.50 per painter is charged this covers the use of paints, glazing and the firing, secondly choose an item from the extensive range of bisque products..  Next, think of a design and get painting. There are a selection of books and stencils to help if you need it or you can ask a member of staff to help. You don’t need to be an artist to achieve great results.  Finally your item will be glazed with a food safe glaze then fired in the kiln and be ready to collect in 5-7 days time.

As well as items to decorate, Clay and Play offer a moulding service for baby hand and foot prints and other keepsake items for example siblings handprints as a gift on Fathers Day as shown in the photo on the left.  Something to keep and treasure forever.  These are ideal gifts for grandparents or a unique gift for , Mothers Day, Birthdays and Christmas.

Clay and Play also specialise in Birthday Party’s.  Packages are available for  up to 20 people.  If you’re bringing your child, you can relax as tea, coffee and homemade cakes are available to purchase whilst your child is busy creating their artwork.  Packages start at £9 per head and include 2 bisque items.  Party food is also available to order.
