We have a super “how to” booklet of pottery techniques to follow to create some wonderful pieces.
We are offering a 500g ball of air dry clay with a selection of acrylic paints for just £5 each.
Choose to buy as many balls of clay as you like. One ball makes a pinch pot fruit bowl or a small animal.
By buying this take-away pack from us you are helping to support Artshed (a local business) through what is set too be a difficult time and £1 per ball of clay sold will be donated to Hertfordshire Independent Living Service, who provide a range of services to help older and vulnerable people stay happy, healthy, and independent : www.hertsindependentliving.org
We appreciate planning your time over the next few weeks is going to be tricky.
