Fancy making a completely bespoke gift for your friends or family this Christmas? We visited Flying Colours Pottery to check out their Baby Footprints workshop.
We love it because... It's an easy and quick way to make a personalised gift. Pottery painter Charlotte will paint your child's footprint and use it to create photo frames, plates, mugs, coasters or seasonal gifts (like Christmas decorations) that you can give to your friends and family. Pottery prices start from £4.50 plus a firing fee (£4 per order) which includes the extra £1 to have it personalised. She takes away the finished pieces to glaze them and fire them in a kiln, before delivering the final product back to the same location within 2-3 weeks.
When to go... Visit their regular workshops (see below for upcoming events) or contact the team to arrange a home visit for a group session. Alternatively you can hire a 'takeaway box', where you can hire some craft equipment to get messy with your kids on your own and they'll finish the final products for you.
Top tip... Flying Colours Pottery also offer their services for children's parties - perfect if you have older children who love a bit of art and craft!
