Hands on & Fun

In line with Welsh Government guidelines, the Craft making activities and hands-on fun sessions at the Craft Centre will be available from 3 May 2021! It's been a long time and we can't wait to help you to make your own clever creations in our studios. 

Many of the Craft Studios at the Corris Craft Centre offer you the chance to have some fun making your own crafts. Create something for your home or an exceptional gift for someone special. This is a surprisingly great way to while away a couple of hours and to relax with family and friends.

Choose from the craft activities listed below and contact them direct to pre-book or just drop in to the studios where this is possible. Many of the craft activities get really busy during school holidays so pre-booking is highly recommended.

Pottery Painting

The Glaze Studio at the Quarry Pottery is a colourful space to get creative and to design and paint your own pottery. Please use the link below to book a pottery painting session.

Choose from a selection of ceramic objects including dragons, mugs, plates, bowls, goblets, teapots, vases, lanterns and more. Then using a range of templates, stencils, brushes and paints design your own unique creations.  Expert advice is available from the Designer-makers themselves, just ask.  

 

 

Pottery painting is recommended for ages 7+ and adults and prices start from £15 per

Make a Herbal Milk Bath Pouch - currently unavailable

Come and relax in our Craft Corner at Spellbound Herbals and create your own milk bath pouch. Use a pestle and mortar to blend and grind the herbs to release the plant's essential oils giving off a most wonderous aroma and healing benefits for the skin too. The pouch of herbs and oats can then be hung from the bath tap or wetted in the shower to create the lovely oaty milk and gel that occurs (when oats are wet) and it comes out through the voile bag to scrub and cleanse the skin with gentle effectiveness. Each session costs £5 and can last from 10 minutes up to half an hour.
