Clay Days

ABOUT THE DAY

Each day runs from 10am-4pm and our current venue is Greenside Community Centre, 24 Lilestone Street, Marylebone, London, NW8 8SR. See below or view large map.

DEMONSTRATIONS

We usually have one or more demonstrations by volunteers from the group; we try to let you know in advance what these will be and whether you need to bring anything special

NURSERY GROUP

We are a very friendly group and people are usually willing to offer advice and guidance to beginners on an ad-hoc basis.  However we often also run a short session for complete beginners, our "Nursery Group" - if you would like to be included in this please let us know as part of your booking.

PHOTOS

You may take still photos (unobtrusively!!!) during the demos, but in fairness to our demonstrators, please do not video any of the demos.  Please don't post your photos onto Facebook or other social media after the event.

SHOW & TELL TABLE

In addition we have a “Show-and-Tell” table at each Day. Members can use this to display and talk about a recent creation, or to ask for help in solving a problem. If you don't bring anything to show, you're quite likely to have your (polymer!) jewellery removed at the door by Carol!

 

Please be aware that pieces on the Show and Tell table WILL be photographed and posted on our website and facebook site.

 

Lastly, the table is  called 'Show and Tell' for a reason - please be willing to answer questions abour your process and techniques - that's how everyone learns!

COST

We charge £20 per session to cover the cost of hiring the hall and other incidental expenses.

REFRESHMENTS

We provide tea and coffee (and often cake and biscuits) during the day, but you will need to bring your own packed lunch and a mug.

 

There is a M&S food hall within five minutes walk (inside Marylebone station)

There are lots of tables but please would you bring some sort of table protection such as polythene – a split open bin bag would be OK.
