Christmas Craft & Cake Experience


The Christmas Craft Experience takes place in the Denby Craft Studio and starts with a demonstration by one of our skilled Craft Studio team, sharing hints and tips to help you get the most out of your experience.

Then, it’s over to you to create and personalise your very own set of two ceramic coasters using Denby Clay and a selection of our stamping & decorating tools. Left with our skilled team, your coasters will be kiln fired and finished in our stunning Natural Canvas glaze, ready to collect at a later date.

Next, it’s time to hand-paint onto one of our beautiful new collectable tree decorations, the Kind Little Angel. Choose from a selection of our colourful glazes and decorate your Kind Little Angel in your own design, ready to gift to a loved one for Christmas or to add that personal touch to your tree this year.

Throughout this 1.5 hour craft session, our skilled team will be available to offer you guidance and inspiration (should you need it).

A complementary hot drink of your choice and a piece of homemade cake in Bourne’s Coffee Shop & Bistro is also included and can be enjoyed on the day after your 11am Craft Experience or before your 2pm Craft Experience (due to Bourne's opening hours).

Why not make your experience even more special and upgrade your complementary hot drink and cake to an Afternoon Tea for an additional £10. You can 'add-on' this upgrade at the booking stage.

PRICE: £25.00 per person OR £35 with Afternoon Tea.
