We offer the following hands-on sessions where you can create a masterpiece out of clay! We are currently running sessions starting at around 11am, 2pm and 5pm with one household or bubble at a time. This gives us time to deep clean between sessions.
Mini session: Just create with airdry clay
Cost: £15 for one participant, £20 for 2, £25 for 3. (Enquire for 4 or more participants)
This includes basic tuition, use of tools and airdry clay. Creations can be taken away on the day or left in Dipsy Dragon for a day or so to dry off. When the clay is dry the pieces can be painted – acrylic paint is good for this.
Session time: About 1 hour
