Snail painting workshop



Paint your own sensational snail using our fantastic range of crystal glazes.

Our snails are slip cast in house and are suitable for outdoor* or indoor living!

Great for a quirky gift experience or just treat yourself to a crafty workshop; the results speak for themselves!

Please contact Saz to let her know what size of snail you'd like; small (£37), medium (£48.50) or large (£59). *N.B. Our ceramic snails like to hibernate in winter months as they're not fans of frost!

Workshop price includes a large choice of glazes, full tuition, snails and firing fee. Your snail will be ready for collection in approximately a week's time.

Hot drinks are included, but you may wish to round off your experience with a visit to the Red Cone Coffee House next door for a well deserved tasty lunch or slice of cake!

Please use the date picker to select a date and then contact Saz to arrange time.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All use of pottery tools, brushes, aprons and glazes are included in the price, as is snail and firing costs. Your snail will be ready for collection a few days' later.

Refreshments will be provided during the workshop, and there's the Red Cone Coffee House just next door if you'd like to order a delicious lunch or treat yourself to a slice of homemade cake as a reward for your 'hard' work painting! If you'd prefer to bring a packed lunch, it's lovely to sit at our picnic tables by the canal and watch the world go by (weather permitting!) The aim is to make sure you leave having had an enjoyable experience, with a view to coming back soon!

This is my fourth project with Saz - I started small with a Peter Rabbit, then did a Santa - time to move to bigger things and I did a snail - called her Doris as all the others were men! Excellent tuition and really relaxing to do with a friend or on your own. Saz provides the tea and biscuits, a gossip and reminds you to breathe when you get too focussed! If you do the smaller snail, remember to consider how you paint it - I sat there with a hand in the shell as I painted it wrong way round and had to wait until it dried before I could put it down! Told a young visitor it was eating my hand and he believed me! I’ ll Be back for my next project soon.......and I am not the arty type. Thoroughly enjoyable experience would recommend to anyone.

Treated my mum to this course for Mother’s Day as something a little different to do together. Saz made us feel so welcome and it was great to chat to other students who dropped in to work on their clay projects. We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to see our finished snails; Hughbert Sebastian Forbes and Horace! We will definitely be back.

The atmosphere is always amazing and the studio has a warm and welcoming friendly feel and the cup of tea ain't to bad either xxx
