Not just for kids
Perhaps you have seen a sample you love, or you have something unique in mind for a special event, but you don’t have the time or the inclination to do it yourself. We can paint just about any design on just about any piece of bisque! So instead of all that footwork hunting round the shops for that extra special gift, come straight to us and tell us what you’d like.
You can bring in a design for us to copy or have a chat with us about what you’d like. Prices vary according to the piece you want painted and the design you choose. Please give us as much notice as you can. We really need at least 2 weeks to produce your one-off, unique, never-to-be-repeated masterpiece!
This service is especially popular for occasional pieces – weddings, new baby, birthdays, anniversaries, retirement, mother’s day, thank you, leaving gift, school reunion, sporting or other achievement – any occasion you can think of! Our hand painted plates also make beautiful and personal presentation pieces for awards ceremonies.
Whether you want to bring your class to our Studio for a field trip, or you want us to come to you, we have a fantastic project for you! We know that teachers don’t always have the art resources at school that they would like – so why not get us involved?
Our tile projects are really popular with school groups and work particularly well if you have a theme – which could be for the whole school, a year group, or individual classes. Each child is given a tile, and during the session they will design and paint it themselves with help from our instructors. Using a theme creates unity between all the children’s tiles, and it is always interesting to see how each child interprets the theme in their own way. We guide and instruct but each child’s work is their own! Past themes include Aboriginal Art, Under the Sea, Egyptians, What makes me Happy, I love Bahrain, and the Impressionists. Once the painting is done we fire and finish the tiles and aim to have them ready within a week. The finished tiles display well together, having a cohesive theme.
We also offer wet clay modelling and painting, where a project can be moulded and painted in the same session while the clay is still wet. The pieces have to air dry for about 10 days before we can fire them, so this project takes 2 weeks before it is ready for collection. We make sure we explain the process of kiln firing to the children as part of their experience.
Popular clay projects include fish, turtles, owls, rabbits and dinosaurs!
Other school projects much in demand are mosaics, decoupage and acrylics on canvas, which can all be finished and taken away at the end of the session. We can accommodate up to 28 children at the Studio at any one time, or we can come to your School with our mobile Studio.
We can advise and help you choose projects and themes, and we can adapt to your time frame to make sure the children have a truly wonderful experience with Studio Ceramics! And of course we offer discounts to school groups. Contact the Studio for more information and to receive our schools’ brochure.
Corporate Team Building
Lets not forget our Corporate Cousins! The Studio is a perfect place for a team building day, and it is not just about painting! We are very creative and we can come up with lots of ideas to make your team building day a big success. Working together as a team on an art project usually requires thinking out of the box and hones skills that are under utilized. You will be surprised what comes out of a Studio Ceramics Team Building Day!
Previously at Studio Ceramics we have built marshmallow structures as well as creating a firm’s unique mural, not to mention painting a mug to please the person 3 seats along from you!
