Read & Paint: Mermaid

Read & Paint: Mermaid


Our Read & Paint sessions in our studio were always extremely popular and a complete sell out; children love exploring the story they've just enjoyed, and what better way than to paint their very own pot?

Each pack includes:
1 Paperback Copy of 'The Singing Mermaid' by Julia Donaldson & Lydia Monks
1 Mermaid Pot

1 Paintbrush

1 Plastic Cup (for water to wash brush)
1 Sponge (to dry paintbrush)
5 Tubs Paint (Blush, Orange, Turquoise, Purple, Yellow)
1 Pottery Painting Instruction Sheet




Bring your pot back to the studio where it can be glazed & fired, ready to collect later, or use spray on varnish to seal your paints without having to leave the house (varnish not provided). 


* PLEASE NOTE: Pottery can be dropped off on Tuesdays and Thursdays FROM 26TH MAY 2020 between 5.30PM & 7PM by placing in the box provided at the studio. This may be just inside the door if there is bad weather. Please follow social distancing guidelines and ring the doorbell for attention if a member of staff is not downstairs. There will be no guaranteed timescales for firing pottery - the kiln will be loaded when we have a full load to fire - you will be contacted when your item(s) are ready to collect. Thank you.
