Pottery Parties:  We are taking bookings now

Being creative  together with others can be something that is fun to do.  So why not give your child or a friend a gift that will fire their imagination.  No need to worry about making a mess, this is  an opportunity for free self-expression. A pottery party with friends is a great opportunity for everybody to unleash creativity, problem solve, improve hand to eye co-ordination and boost self esteem. We help  you achieve a work of art and  fire your creations in our kiln.  To ensure everyone is assured of personal attention from an experienced teacher, numbers are kept to a maximum of 14 children, 10 adults. After the creative session and hand washing,  party celebrations with cake and refreshment can begin in our open plan conservatory kitchen which opens onto a large private garden. 

Workshops:  Make a wonderful gift for someone.

Clay is a wonderful tactile medium that many people have never experienced before. Its three dimensional nature forces you to think about structure, shapes and form. Once you learn to express and execute your personal visions in clay, you become empowered in ways that go far beyond the walls of the ceramic studio.  Longfield Studio allows  you to experiment with a variety of hand building and throwing techniques while you find your potential.
 You can book a one-to-one couple workshop or a parent and child session with an experienced and trained ceramic teacher to learn a particular skill or come in a family or company group for a  workshop tailored to your ideas. The studio also offers facilities for potters wanting to find a peaceful place to work on a long-term basis with use of kilns, clays, glazes and ceramic equipment. Longfield Potters find our voucher scheme allows the flexibility to come to the studio at their own convenience.

Children's  Mixed Media Art Courses: Book now for Spring 2017 NEW art course.

During this  terms  childrens'  'Inspired By British Art' we have already looked at what we can learn from techniques used by Francis Bacon, Eileen Agar (playing with shapes), creating sculpture after studying Barbara Hepworth's forms, and mono-printed a backgound for our sculpture to photograph it against. Before half term we will try our hand at throwing.
The course which runs  from January to March, will end in  a public art exhibition of the work. Each term we run 8-10 week courses after school 3.35-5.05 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays.   Children from 6-14 experiment with clay, collage, printing, painting, stencilling, 3D art and drawing. The range of media and topics, which are linked in with art history and culture,  really extend the children's learning in an enjoyable way.  Topics include landscape, portraiture, design, figurative composition and observation from nature. To ensure everyone is given personal attention from an experienced teacher, class sizes are kept small. For  information about previous French, Italian, American, Mexican, Spanish, Asian and British themed art courses and exhibitions see 'Links' to Longfield Studios.
