In March 2020 we went into Highfield Primary School, Chorley and did a clay and paint session. They were learning all about the Vikings and the jewellery which they made. Before I arrived, they had done a design session in class and planned their piece of jewellery so that when I gave them a piece of clay each they could make that piece of jewellery. We dried it a little during break time and then they painted the clay piece with special clay paints. I then took them all back to the studio to be dried and fired and then glazed and fired.

Jane thank you so much for today, my class loved making their Viking jewellery.

Can’t wait to see the final products. Regards Rebecca


Clay bowls and urns decorated in traditional colour. St. Mary’s Catholic School Great Eccleston made these colour traditional shaped urns and jugs. Some painted ancient Greek style and some modern. St. Mary’s brought their school to the studio and they all made a clay pot Greek style. We fired them and they returned the following month to decorate them.
Leverhouse School Creative week; all the pupils from reception upwards painted mugs. We did finger painting for the young ones and introduced different sponges and stamps to use for the older children. As you can see some of the really young did hand prints too
Clayton le Woods Primary chose a class to do a tile freeze, using the topics they had studied that year to date. We added 3D flowers, sea life, sun and leaves onto there individual tiles to add a new dimension to the work.

What Our Customers Say

We have used Fired 4 U several times as a high school and had a fabulous experience each time. Nothing is too much trouble for Jane and her staff. We have used the facilities at the studio and Jane has brought her pottery and paints to us to do in school. Most recently Jane came into school to do a copper enameling session with a group of students. They absolutely loved it – both boys and girls. Can’t wait till our next session!

Ashton Community Science College

Both plates (brush stroke cockerel designs) are now safely installed in the cabinet: they are definitely too nice to eat from! I’ve never known Max to be so pleased about something he has made, so a huge achievement! Even though Jake has always been more interested in art/pottery, his confidence wasn’t that great to begin with so it’s really helped him to see that he can make really great things to be proud of thanks to you! It’s a nice calm environment for them to work in.

(these children are home schooled and have a lesson at Fired 4 U each month)
