Christmas Parties

If you want something different for your staff Christmas party this year, then why not try an art or pottery activity at The Art House? Break the ice and bond the gang with a crafty class where you can learn a new skill and get everyone talking.

We can offer throwing on the wheel, painting, sculpting, fabric printing and more!  We’ll even provide the glasses if you would like to bring your own alcoholic beverages.

“We attended a mixed child/adult pottery wheel session and everyone had a fantastic time and even the youngest (aged 5) managed to produce a couple of bowls. The tutor was fantastically patient with us all and we’ll definitely be booking more sessions in the future.”

“The children loved their pottery lesson. The Art House is an excellent venue, the teachers were very patient, and made the class great fun. Everyone was a complete novice and everyone managed to make two pots. A great result!. Thank you.”

Prices start at £25 per person for a two hour session (minimum booking of 10 people or £250). Price includes all materials, glazing and firing charges.

Hen Parties

You are welcome to bring alcoholic drinks and cake, lunch can be pre-ordered in our cafe.

Generally the sessions are for a two hour period (but we will try to accommodate your preference).

“The tutor was so welcoming and really positive about all our different creative talents (!). She was a great teacher, which meant that everyone came away from the session having learnt something new, made something to take home, and had a lot of fun and laughs, too!  Some of the girls are talking about signing up for a course they enjoyed it so much. Thank you!”
