This is such a wonderful new addition to Oakwood.
I have taken my 3 children ( ages just 4, 6, & 7) four times now, each time we enjoy the calm, welcoming, creative atmosphere.
The staff are immensely attentive,and really helpful at giving tips, or suggestions to make the most of the experience.
The first time i went i was concerned my youngest wouldn't keep focused for very long, but what works for her is she paints for about 20 mins, then will have a little wander to the sofa area where she can interact with other children, and where toys & books are provided,. After a little while she comes back for more painting.
All the staff have a wonderfully natural way with children, & i always feel that my children are extremely welcome there.
You choose a piece to paint, there is a lot of choice, and a wide price range too, plenty for £10 & under for example, and i think the studio fee of £5 per person (for paints, all the extras like stencils & stamps, & the firing) is extremely good value.
My son is 6 & not a very confident 'artist' but he adores this place and we're always the last to leave as he just keeps on tweaking his master pieces & testing new techniques...its fab to see him so engaged and focused, he has painted a treasure chest, a plate, & 2 bowls, each is unique and he is so very proud of them, one of the bowls is for Daddy for Fathers Day.
My 7 year old daughter has painted a mug, a plate ( for Daddy), a tile, & most recently a heart that will be returned after firing complete with a beautiful beaded hanger.
My youngest ( just 4) has painted a treasure chest, a bowl ( for Daddy), a princess money box, & a cupcake trinket box.
The last 2 times i took them i was so confident that they would be engaged, that i painted a piece too; a bowl & a heart-shaped plate.
I have also been on ladies Friday night too...brilliant!!
Such a relaxing, fun atmosphere, same set up but take nibbles,olives, wine & They order pizza in too! That time i painted a teapot...And i love it!
We are due to go & collect our latest creations this week ( about a week after you've painted)
It's so exciting seeing them glazed, and the look of utter pride on my children's faces is wonderful. We always stay for a drink & a yummy homemade cake.
My 2 eldest have birthdays in August & November & have already requested that they have their parties there.
Well done to the staff at Jackrabbits, you have created a wonderful wonderful place, thank you!
