Pottery Parties Make Learning Fun!

Whatever your celebration, be it a child's birthday, corporate party or social occasion, why not have creative fun celebrating in a private pottery and art studio overlooking Richmond Park, with off-street parking,  use of open plan ground floor venue inclusive of welcoming hallway, conservatory kitchen, choice of toilets and large garden. 

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 Course  for Autumn 2019. Join us  now.

Starting Monday 9th September . The course is 14 weeks ending in an open exhibition of all the childrens’ work on 14/15 December. We will be inspired by print and transfer methods and mainly Pop artists: Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Harding, Pablo Picasso, Jasper Johns and Dan Tirels.  As always there will be plenty of experimentation making collograph, styrofoam, lino, and gelli printing plates. Maybe even gyotaku if we can get some fresh fish!
We will tap into kenning methods to inspire creativity  and use plaster moulds, newspaper and slip to print directly onto clay before forming into a mug and firing.  For a copy of the programme email me.
Each term we run 10-14 week courses after school 3.45-5.15 pm.  Children from 8-12 years of age 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 Tudor, French, Italian, American, Mexican, Spanish, Asian and British themed art courses and exhibitions see 'Links' to Longfield Studio
