*Please book an appointment for a clay imprint.*

Foot & Hand Imprint

Capture your child’s hand or footprint on a ceramic piece of your choice, whether a plate to hang on the wall, a mug for Daddy’s coffee or a teapot for Granny.

We paint your baby’s feet or hands with our water-based, non-toxic paints and place it on the pottery to take a print.  You can then add your own wording and decoration, or we can do it in the studio for you.

Clay imprints

In addition to painted prints, crockadoodledo also offers clay imprints of hand and feet.  We take an impression of a hand and foot or two hands or two feet – the choice is yours – in clay.  Once the clay has dried, we fire it, paint it to your specification, glaze it and fire it again.  The imprint can then be mounted and framed, creating a beautiful, lasting memory.

There are many techniques to make pottery from most commonly known potter’s wheels to clay slip casting processes. Here at crockadoodledo I’d like to introduce you to our clay workshop by using  slab clay to hand build unlimited pottery from plates, bowls, mugs, butter dishes, cake stand, jugs…and more! Hand-built pottery gives you an easy entry to the world of pottery making.

This 2.5 hours workshop is suitable to participants with no previous experience or for those seeking further development of hand building pottery without a wheel. Slab will be used to create and decorate a patterned mug and spoon. A complementary drink is included in this workshop.

Every Wednesday and Friday we offer  hand build pottery workshop, this can be up to 4-6 people for one group session. We can do private workshop on Saturday/Sunday if you are a 6 people group. Please do book ahead if you like to potter about!
