The Clay Studio

Statement Regarding COVID-19

Updated 20 May 2020

 

The Clay Studio remains closed to visitors due to government restrictions. This could change according to official guidance and we monitor this daily. However, we have now allocated four times each week when we will be open to collect finished pottery and First Impressions prints, collect pottery ordered on-line and return painted pottery for firing. If you are collecting finished pottery please bring your yellow receipt slip. We will be operating under COVID-19 guidelines with contactless collection and delivery. There will be a table at the entrance to the Studio. Please allow one person only to make the collection or delivery.

 

We are now offering Paint at Home packs.  These can be ordered on-line or you can telephone during opening hours or email your requirements. Just the activity for keep the family creative during half-term and the rest of lockdown. We also have a special Father's Day pack. We are adding to our offer daily - please contact us if there is anything special you would like. Pottery ordered on-line can be delivered to specific postcodes for a small charge or collected free of charge from The Clay Studio during advertised opening hours.

 

We will post any further updates on Facebook and Twitter.  

Updated 23 March 2020

Following the government's advice relating to social distancing we feel the most appropriate and responsible way forwards is to close The Clay Studio completely until further notice. As such, we will not be open for collections until the advice changes. We will continue to monitor the situation in accordance with government advice. Any updates will be posted here as well as on our Twitter and Facebook feeds.

Updated: 20 March 2020

It is with deep regret that, following directive this evening from the government regarding Coronavirus, we have now been instructed to close The Clay Studio until further notice. However, we still intend to offer limited opening times for pottery collections. There are many items ready for collection and we are aware that it is Mother's Day on Sunday and customers will want to collect their lovely creations. As such, we will be open Saturday 21 March from 12pm until 2pm for collections only.

Going forward, we will also be opening for collections on Wednesdays from 4pm to 6pm and Saturdays from 12pm for 2pm. All items painted up to Sunday 15 March are fired and ready for collection. Unfortunately, we will not be open for the café or for painting in the Studio. If you are unable to collect we can arrange to send your item by courier for a small charge. Please e-mail us on info@theclaystudio.co.uk if you would like to take advantage of this.

Additional information:

  • Items being held for collection or completion will be held beyond the normal guaranteed six and two months respectively according to how long we have to close.

  • Future bookings remain valid and we will review these as the dates become closer.

  • First Impressions baby hand and footprints are being completed and we will let you know when they are ready for collection.

 

We are looking at ways to keep you painting particularly as many are off work, the schools have now closed and you will be looking for activities to keep your family inspired! As such, we are looking at offering Pottery Painting Take-Away Boxes. More information about this exciting activity will follow in the next couple of days.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and support and hope you and your family remain safe and healthy during this difficult period.

We are monitoring the situation daily and hope to be open again as soon as possible. We will post any updates on this Web site as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

We look forward to seeing you again soon - please email us if you need any further information.

With many thanks.
