Field Trip With Us

This fun, informative and practical visit with The Bee’s Knees Studio takes approximately one to one and a half hours depending on the age range of the children, the number of people in the group, and the pottery you choose to paint. There must be a minimum of 10 people in your group.

We tailor the content of the visit to suit your requirements.

Our most often booked session is pottery painting and for most of the visit everyone will decorate his or her own piece of ‘bisque’ pottery from your chosen pottery selection. We provide instruction, and have lots of simple design tools that you can use. Our paints are water-based and do not stain.

We can also include explanations and demonstrations of:

~~Pouring a mold*

~~Working with clay at different stages: slip, green ware, bisque**

~~Decorating techniques

~~Glazing pottery

~~Loading the Kiln*

We glaze and fire your painted pottery; finished items are ready for collection in 1 week.

We welcome bookings from groups of up to 50 people on school days between 11am and 4pm.The price quoted includes one item per person from your chosen selection, use of studio facilities, paints, glazing and firing.
