We know, we know it's a bit last minute but we just realised that we hadn't put the Me Time dates down on the calendar!
Are you desperate for a night out with the girls (or boys for that matter) and the chance for a good old natter and a catch up? Well Me Time is the answer. We can now accept bookings from multiple households up to a maximum of six to a table or two separate households.
If you have been before then you know how it works but for those new to the concept here is a quick rundown. Call us on 0115 905 6029 or go online to book.
After a year of lockdowns and restrictions we all need some time to just chill out, what better way than with some art therapy. Go online for some design inspiration, check out our Pinterest page for ideas or just wing it when you get here, either way we are looking forward to seeing you soon.
If you can't make it next week the next dates are 24th June & 29th July. We will of course remind you of these closer to the time.
We have a confession to make, both of us have managed to book a holiday at the same time ....so we will be closed from the 11th June until the 18th June. This means that if you want to paint something special for your Dad this year you need to have painted it by the 9th June and collect it on the afternoon of Thursday 10th or on Saturday 19th.
We will be doing a very last minute kiln firing to ensure that anything done that week will the available to be taken home on Thursday 10th June.
This means that you can't wait till the last minute... Sorry about that.
Is there a new baby in the house? You do know don't you that you now have a purpose built present making device? Dad will love his special "I love my Daddy" keepsake with those tiny hands & feet on.
Of course Daddy would love a 'insert cute figurine here' painted by his special child, it can even live in their bedroom.... yes we have encountered this scenario many a time! What ever the item it will still have been painted with love for Dad!
Now is the time to get those baby prints and keepsakes made. This last year has made it more challenging with lockdowns and social distancing, however, as we are now allowed once again to have one to one appointments we have decided to run a special offer from now until the end of May. For every £20 spent on hand or foot prints create an additional coaster worth £6 for free.
So what is stopping you from getting those keepsakes made?
The quickest and simplest baby print keepsake is one that is a print on an item of pottery. Any item of pottery can be used so long as it has a flat surface big enough for the intended print. The cost is just the cost of the item, nothing added on for us to help you.
If you prefer some texture to your baby print keepsake then an imprint in clay is for you. This version is usually easier to do when you have a small baby who likes to scrunch up their hand. Scrunched up hands make glazed prints more of a challenge where as clay ones are often more straight forward for us to do.
We have over ten years experience under our belts now however with all of these options there is always the chance that your baby will protest and sometimes they get upset at being made to do something they haven't done before! So prepare for a few tears!
As well as ceramic keepsakes we also offer silver jewellery baby imprints. Prices start at around £65 for a pendant. We have lots of different shapes to choose from. If you would like to know more pop in to the studio and have a look at our brochure.
Putting 2020 behind us and moving into 2021 we are super happy to be welcoming you back in to the studio. Be that to make a baby print keepsake or come along to spend and hour or two getting creative with some pottery painting. Please help our little business move out of our COVID hibernation into a bustling and bright new year by sharing our social media posts, our emails and of course coming into paint with us.
Please book a session in advance where possible, however we know not everyone can plan ahead so we will accept walk-ins if we have space. For a one to one baby print session please choose a mid week session if possible. We are quieter then and there is less chance of interruption!
If you have some painted items to collect or take away items to return come along to the studio during opening hours and pick up / drop off your items asap. We keep your painted items for one year, after that we either use them as examples or dispose of them. This is something that we don't like doing so please come in and take your pottery home.
Hello! Do you remember us? It seems such a long time ago since we have seen your lovely faces and it is great to be able to say 'we are back!' Well, we will be back on the 13th April 2021 - we are just letting you know now so that you can make plans to visit us!
If you have seen our posts on social media you will know that we have been on a countdown now for the past couple of weeks. We are now in the final week and we need to ask a favour.
We need to feel the love! So we ask ever so nicely if you would share this email and our social media posts with everyone, in all the groups (don't annoy too many people though) and most of all please book to come in and paint with us.
We are open again from Tuesday 13th April, you can follow the link to book a table now or call us (0115 905 6029) for same day reservations. (we won't be there to answer the phone till Tuesday so don't call just yet)
The Easter Holidays will still be in full swing and looking at the weather app it is looking like it will be pretty pants weather wise. So what are you waiting for?
We have been given the go ahead to open by Gedling Borough Council, with some conditions that we must to adhere to, otherwise we will get into trouble!
Of course please stay at home if you are insolation or have had a positive test - not sure why we even need to say this one, by now this is just so ingrained in our psyche!
There have been a few changes to the layout of the studio, we have removed a few tables both downstairs and up so that there is more space. All the upstairs spaces are available to book, please say in the comment when booking or when you arrive if you have specifically chosen to be upstairs.
The most important thing for us is that we are back! And fingers crossed for no more lockdowns!
