About the event

FAMILY FUN at Bridwell this summer!

August 2nd - BUBBLE GLAZING demonstrations!

August 23rd - How to use SILKSCREENS! (in other words.. fancy pottery stencils!)

Session runs from 10:30am til 12:30pm. Arrivals welcome from 10:15am.

Silkscreen demonstrations throughout the morning so, as long as you leave enough time for your group to paint and be finished for 12:30pm, you are welcome to arrive at your leisure.

Where can I find you?

Enter Bridwell through the gates, pay admission fee at the welcome hut on arrival, follow the path up to the orangery. From there we will either be outside in the beautiful orangery gardens OR if the great british weather decides otherwise, in rainy weather we will be inside the (also beautiful) chapel just around the corner. Look out for our sign!

When will my pottery be ready to take home?

After the event, we will take your pottery away to be clear glazed and fired. It will be ready for you to collect from the orangery cafe 10-14 days later. You will get an email to confirm when it's ready for you to collect. (We can also post your items on to you.)

£15pp to include your pottery and all materials. Please choose your pottery online in advance.

Choose from:

  • Dessert plate (Recommended for silkscreens for the nice flat surface!)
  • Mug (Can be used for silkscreens, although a bit trickier on the curved surface)
  • Figurine (Silkscreens not possible on a figurine)

Booking recommended - Walk-ins welcome depending on availability

What is a silkscreen?

A silkscreen is a fine mesh screen, used to print a pre-made image onto your pottery. We have lots of designs to choose from, and will show you how to use our special powder and glaze to transfer the image onto your pottery. You can choose any colours, and then 'colour them in' with paint afterwards too! A great new technique to learn, plus once you've been shown how to use them - you are welcome to use our silkscreens at all of our events!

You don't have to participate in the silkscreen demos to take part, other pottery painting also welcomed!
