Join us for this fun annual event at Tapton Lock, Chesterfield on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September from 11am – 4pm!

You’ll spot us easily – we’re in the bright red gazebo, and if you hop on down to see us, you can make your very own Jumping Clay frog!

There’s lots of other things going on too all weekend, including live music, lots of food and drink, and even the chance to have a go at canoeing and climbing!

It’s always a great day out – and best of all, entry is completely FREE!

Hope to see you there!

Open Day – Saturday 10th September 10.30 – 2.30

Did you see the fantastic news this week that the Giant Panda is no longer listed as an endangered species? We’re so excited about this that we’ve decided that the Jumping Clay mini make at this Saturday’s Open Day will be these cute panda magnets for just £2 each!

There’s no need to book – just drop in any time between 10.30am and 2.30pm!

In case you don’t know where we are, our studio is on Saltergate, and we’ve got a purple front door! You can find a map and directions here.

The kettle will be on, the biscuit tins fully stocked, and you can have a nosey around our newly re-jigged studios (yes that’s a technical term, and we’re really hoping that everything will be finished in time!!)

As well as the Jumping Clay mini makes, we’ve also got some vintage sewing and knitting patterns that we’re selling off in return for donations to the Chesterfield and North Derbyshire RSPCA, and our full range of courses and workshops for the Autumn term and beyond are open for bookings.


For those of you who are extremely organised, you can even get a head-start on your Christmas shopping as we stock lots of items by local artists and craftspeople (we accept cash, cheque and card payments in the studio)

I look forward to seeing lots of you there!

Chesterfield Artisan Market – Last Sunday Every Month

Chesterfield Artisan Market

We’ll be at the Chesterfield Artisan Market the last Sunday of every month, offering Jumping Clay mini makes and with a FREE Colouring In table!

We will also have some of our Jumping Clay kits to buy on the day, but we’ll have limited stocks so if you know that you want to buy something specific, let us know and we’ll bring an extra one just for you!

Dog Magnet

It’s one of our favourite annual events on Saturday 18th June – the RSPCA Fun Dog Show!

The show opens at 10.30am and runs until 4pm, with events and activities in the two show rings throughout the day. There will be lots of stalls there too, including tombolas, food and drink, and treats for both you and your pet!

Roz and Niamh will be there with the StraightCurves marquee – we’ll be doing badgemaking (including a special range of badges for Father’s Day), and of course, Jumping Clay mini-makes – take your pick from cat or dog magnets or a pair of cute caterpillars!

It’s always a great day out, and we look forward to seeing lots of you there!
