Family Christmas Decoration Making with James Ort, 14th & 21st November, 7.30pm - 9.30pm (LATER SESSION)

Create extra-special Christmas tree decorations for you, your family and special friends!

Get into the festive spirit with a Christmas clay creation session suitable for all the family. Bring the kids and together you’ll create something really personal and unique for your family Christmas this December. You’ll be making your own unique Christmas tree or wall decorations that are destined to become family heirlooms!

The Christmas clay creation station opens on the afternoon of Monday 14th November 5pm – 7pm. Then you’ll return the same time, same place the following week to glaze your pieces.  Your pieces will then be ready to put on the Christmas tree before the 1st Decemeber.

The price is £25/particpant for the two sessions - clay making and glazing.

All materials are included. Parents should stay for the whole session even if they are not making - though it is strongly recommended that you do get creative too!

  • Work at your own pace to create your own design – simple and cheery or intricate and beautiful – the choice is yours.
  • James will have some examples on which to base your own creations. Alternatively, feel free to bring along a selection of designs/images to use as a starting point.
  • Step-by-step, James will guide you through the steps needed to make your clay ornaments.
  • Your tree decoration will be made from clay, which will first be fired…
    …and then you’ll need to return a week later to have more fun glazing them in beautiful colours.
  • A second firing and then your piece will be finished! Come back to proudly collect your unique, bespoke Christmas ornament. (Another chance for a mince pie too.)

  • You’ll get inspiration, family fun and step-by-step guidance from James throughout the process.
  • The sessions are perfect for all ages.
  • Frequent refreshments – tea, coffee, soft drinks & biscuits included – mince pies too

Christmas decorations


Here are just a couple of testimonials from some of last year’s participants:

My daughter loved making clay Christmas decorations. It was great for her to create something handmade and that she will proudly see hanging on our tree for years to come. The Phoenix studio is a warm and friendly place to visit and this course was a fun, Christmas-y way to spend a few hours together!

After a warm welcome in the studio we made some fantastic Christmas decorations. A fun, creative and festive way to get into the spirit of things. My daughter had a great time making decorations we will see on our Christmas tree year after year. I also enjoyed my cuppa and mince pie! I would definitely recommend this activity, suitable for all ages.
