Pottery Parties In Oxfordshire
GET FIRED UP AT THE PHOENIX
At the Phoenix Studio you’ll find a great range of art and craft courses to help you learn a new skill, develop your ideas and express your creative side. There’s a place here for the absolute beginner, aspiring genius or seasoned practitioner. Our friendly, mostly workshop-style classes are led by experienced artists who will help your creative ideas take shape. We especially like people who think they have no artistic talent, but would love to have a go!
WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES
There are regular weekday classes and workshops in oil painting, portrait painting, and ceramic life modelling, drawing and printmaking. You may prefer to learn traditional methods and trusted techniques, but there’s room for free expression and experimentation. On Tuesdays we open the studio to those who want to work in their own way but in a shared space. There are also yoga classes, and natural art workshops that combine meditation with intuitive and expressive art making.
STATE OF THE ART FACILITIES
The light and airy purpose-built studio is an inspiring space, which overlooks the wildflower meadow. It is well equipped too, and we can provide some materials and equipment to support your endeavours (please check for particulars) including clay and glazes. There is a drying room and two kilns on site for firing your work.
At weekends you may find a mosaic being pieced together, a wishing stone in the raku kiln, or ceramic fauna evolving; our weekend workshops are very popular. Keep checking the website for updates because we are adding more courses all the time.
PLAY AND LEARN
Our classes are mostly geared up for adults but we love working with children. Some courses are family friendly, and would be an ideal opportunity for a parent and child to learn together. And the Phoenix Studio is a great place for a kids party – we’ll put together a package of hands-on clay fun and the children can make a special keepsake to remind them of a fantastic time. Please call James to discuss your party thoughts.
