FREE! Ceramics and Animation Tasters With Pure In Stockport

Posted on the 30th July 2019

Create your own mini masterpiece! We are holding two free workshops in ceramics and animation for people with a learning difficulty or disability who want to try something new.

The sessions are for aspiring artists age 16+ and will take place at our dedicated art studios above Vernon Park Cafe.


The first workshop is in Ceramics  this Saturday, August 3rd from 10-2pm. Our staff will be there to guide you through the whole process from throwing clay down on the table to disperse air bubbles right through to applying your own decorative finishes. Drop in and see what you can do.

You can then leave your unique creation with us. We will fire it in our kiln to give it a shiny and durable finish. You can pick it up at a later date and take it home. Make something lovely for pride of place on your mantelpiece or wall!

Our second workshop on Tuesday Aug 6th is for those interested in creating their own stop motion animations.  We have all the right filming equipment and all the materials to craft your own subjects.

We’ll show you exactly how to make the magic happen.  You will be amazed at how quickly you can make a fab video of your own. If you wish we can upload it on to the Pure Art Studio YouTube channel and then you can  watch it at home. You can also share the link with your friends so they can watch too.

Here’s a great example of a recent  animation made at Pure Art Studio. Hold onto your hats!

We are so looking forward to these workshops. They are a great way to introduce people to two really fun rewarding activities.

We have all the equipment that is needed. No experience is required and we look forward to welcoming aspiring artists on the day. If you have a learning difficulty or disability do come along. Exercise your own creativity!
