To share the festive spirit with unique, hand crafted Christmas ceramics and new make at home Crafty Kits and Pottery Painting Packs.

by Paula L Bond in Rampton, England, United Kingdom

Hi, I'm Paula and I run Paula Armstrong Ceramics, a small ceramics studio in Cambridgeshire.  I make ceramics as well as run classes and workshops, well I did until March this year....  Like so many I'm having to rethink how I work at the studio. I love teaching ceramics and watching people fall in love with clay as much as me but with classes stopped and started, then stopped again I've had to think of other ways to help people continue to access their craft/making time that is so important to well being. 

It has meant looking to online teaching and making videos for my regular students but I've also put together some make at home Crafty Kits and Pottery Painting Packs so that individuals and families can still have a go at making at home.  

Are you looking for a gift for a crafty friend?  Or perhaps you'd like an unusual and special family activity for Christmas this year?  The packs make great activities for all ages and the pieces you make will become part of the family tree decoration heirlooms.

The Pottery Painting Packs include all postage and firings so, they may take some time in the post but you can still have your own painted decoration with glossy glaze finish or a fun mosaic decorated treasure chest all the family can make together with child-friendly grout.

More traditionally for Christmas I also have my own ceramic makes for sale from snowmen with character to raku fired Christmas tree decorations. If you are looking for a gift with character that is hand made and one of a kind I have my Christmas pieces as well as my ceramic sculptures which celebrate creation and the potential inside all living things.
