About the Course
Come along and create a beautiful ceramic tealight holder. This is a wonderfully relaxing workshop, bring along a friend or two.
Alison will take you through the steps of rolling out, texturing and stamping, cutting out your tealight holder and preparing it ready for firing in the kiln. Two weeks later, you can decorate your tealight holder with ceramic glazes which will then be fired and be ready to collect (or posted) in 2 weeks time.
Course runs at various times throughout the year. Please email to request details of next available dates.
Alison is an experienced ceramic and stained glass artist with a BA (hons) degree in Fine Art who has taught adult education, primary schools and classes for students with learning difficulties. She has a wealth of experience and would love to help bring the creative side out of you!

What's included in the price?
All materials and light refreshments are included in the price. Aprons are provided.
I provide lots of cutters and stamps but feel free to bring some bits and bobs of your own if you wish to, to impress in the clay: e.g. buttons, fabric, lace or printing stamps.
Arty Alison planned this event so well... All the tools, materials and heaps of inspirational examples for a very pleasurable time crafting things more beautiful and funky than I could have hoped for!
Looking forward to going back next week for the glazing and finishing.

I have been to various events with this lovely lady. She is kind and patient with adults and children alike and inspires you to create beautiful pieces. Great opportunity to learn skills and produce Christmas presents! Will definitely come again .

Enjoyed the course so much I didn't want to leave! Alison is very warm and welcoming, and was great at explaining all the essentials for me to make decorations that I am really proud of. I haven't been on a course like this before, and the help and guidance given was immeasurable, but was given without the feel of someone breathing down my neck. There was a huge range of cutters, stamps and fabrics to work with, and lots of inspirational samples decorating the room. The room is spacious yet cosy and the cakes and drinks went down a treat! A perfect course for all ages and all abilities. I will be back!!
