Schools At Next Arndale


If you’d like to visit us or us to visit your school please get in touch, we have lots of packages to offer. We can also tailor make a package to suit a topic you are covering. 

Example Packages:

All our packages include glazing, firing and returning to school. 

Mug Painting: £6 per child, we can include a story such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar which the children can paint on the mug, or for older children we can do team building and the children can paint each other on the mugs. 

Tile Painting: £6 per child and each child can paint their own tile which can then be used to make a mural in the school (you’d need a local handyman to tile the wall- our tiles are suitable for indoors and outdoors). 

Clay Building: £12 per child. We have lots of themes to follow or the children can use their imagination to create their own pot. The price includes all clay and Painting of the clay by the children. 

Christmas:£7 per child.  Paint a bauble or a hanging tree decoration for either the school tree or for the children to take home. 


Seating or Visiting:

Our studio seats up to 40 children comfortably. We can visit you if you prefer. If you do wish to visit us you are welcome to bring a packed lunch or we can provide lunch for £5 per child. 


Opening Times

I’ve discovered I’m really terrible at blogging... every blog starts with ‘it’s been a while’ 🙈. I just never seem to be able to find a spare 20 minutes... so my thoughts are that I’m going to create an Instagram account that’s all about what I get up to each day, I’m...
