This tile picture was painted by a Leicestershire Scout district on their spring camp. We sketched the church and Gateway on from photos of their camp site. Then Scouts of all ages at the camp painted a tile. Each pack choose a leaf to do a stamp on their pack tile which makes up the border. The D.C. wrote a message on the tile at the bottom of the ‘frame’. This picture now sits on the wall in the church features in the picture.

At the session;
• We provide all the necessary materials
• Demonstrate how to do the activity for the session
• We assist the young people as they do the activity
• Leaders / helpers are required to supervise the group
• After attending the art session each young person will have an individual work of art
• Each session lasts approximately 1 to 1.5 hours depending on age

FREE Gift to your group – each group will receive a commemorative plate as a thank you and a reminder of the fun you all had together. All present at the activity session will sign the plate and we paint your group logo and name on it too.

1st Cottam Guides said ” We came again as we were extremely happy with last visit – girls enjoyed it and gained craft badge. This time we thought we’d do something different doing the copper enameling. The activity can cover some clauses of our ‘go for it’s’. You make it an interesting evening for the girls. ” Nov 2012

Brownies and Guides love Fired 4 U!
Each time our pack visits Jane and co we find that Brownies who have never tried pottery painting before are excited to learn a new skill and those Brownies and Guides (and Leaders!) who are becoming seasoned pottery painters are always eager to develop their skills and learn new techniques.
However, the Brownies and Guides would all tell you that the very best part is opening their individually wrapped masterpieces a week later and finding out how even what they thought were mistakes are a unique piece of art when it has been “Fired 4 U”!

Charnock Richard Beavers group said they chose to have a session with us;
“We like to do a different and interesting activity near the start of the autumn term as it helps get all the young people back into Beavers after the Summer Break. We had heard of Fired 4 U through local community events and also from other Scout Groups who had recommended the sessions to us, so we thought we’d give it a try this year.”
Following the session with Charnock Richard Beavers they said, “Our Fired 4 U session was excellent. The Beavers had a brilliant time and all worked really hard at coming up with their own design for their mugs -as well as earning their Creative Activity Badge. It was a really stress free evening for our leaders as we only had to set up the tables and chairs and supervise, as Jane and her team brought everything with them! A brilliant session that was good value and we’d certainly do it again.”

Following the session with 3rd Leyland Brownies they said,” A thoroughly enjoyable evening; The girls were so excited and were given freedom with their designs and choice of colours and artist tools. The evening was rounded off with a glazing demonstration. This was our second visit and we will definitely be back again.

What a great evening! The mug painting captured both their attention and their imagination. I’ve never known them so quiet.
