Special events and classes
During the month we often have additional events on where you can come to learn new skills and have fun of course. These are a mix of Pottery painting classes with different painting techniques and Clay classes where you are working by hand with the clay using different hand-building techniques to make your creation.
At Fired 4 U we offer many opportunities for you to discover and develop your creative skills with; pottery painting, clay sessions, copper enameling, foam clay decoration, team building, birthday parties, mini potters pre school sessions, special events, Paint at home kits and adults evening classes.
These classes are guided sessions with Jane showing you step by step how to do the project, you still have flexibility if you wish to add your own twist to what you are doing.
There are a few popular sessions which we do and outside of set dates these can be booked so you can come and do them at an agreed date and time.

What Our Customers Say
I have attended several evening workshops at Fired 4 U and would highly recommend them. Under Jane’s guidance I have made a variety of clay ornaments from angels to moon gazing hare plaque.
I have been going to Fired 4 U for just over 2 years now and in all honesty it’s been the best thing I ever did. It’s so therapeutic and relaxing. you find yourself concentrating so hard on the task that you switch off from everything else. Even during lockdowns Jane put kits together so we could work at home, they kept me sane. I’m certainly no expert with clay or paint and my imagination stops at cups, plates and jugs.How ever the vast choice of items in stock I can always find something different to paint. I love the adults nights, each fortnight on a wednesday, and the wonderful things we can make out of clay and make them come alive once painted, fairy houses, Christmas Angels,Halloween Witches, plaques ffor the garden, or the house to name just a few. Jane is patience personified, nothing is too much trouble, adn she will answer any and all questions, spend time showing you different tips to help make your item unique. Janes mantra is “no item painted or crafted is ever wrong, it is unique”. Just like Fired4U- unique with a capital U. Trish
