Mighty Creators at StraightCurves

JumpingCLAY After School Club

This term we have extended our club to 10 weeks to allow our learners to extend their skills and tackle some trickier models. We will be exploring magic, mystery and a little bit of festive fun too!

The club will start at 4.15pm to allow children to come from a variety of local schools. First session is on Thursday 14th September and the other sessions are listed on the course page as there is a break for half term.


after school sewing club


Our after school sewing club is back for children who have already been on our young sewing course or have already learnt how to use a machine else where. In these sessions children bring along their own projects including materials and patterns and Karen leads them through how to make them.


There are two blocks of this club before Christmas and the first one starts on Monday 11th September for 5 sessions over 6 weeks as there is no session on October the 2nd. Isla made the lovely animals in the photo above as one of her many projects and she has almost completed her patchwork quilt too!


Children’s Mosaic Workshop

This new one off workshop with Lis allows children to have a go at basic mosaics to create an attractive decoration on a simple MDF shape. Suitable for children aged 8 years and over and it’s running on Tuesday 12th September 2017.

Fancy a go yourself here is our adult workshop details.



Intermediate Jumping Clay Sessions

These 1.5 hour sessions are designed to allow your child aged 11 years or over to develop their skills in an independent way during this tutor supported session. Each session allows your child to choose what they want to make either picking a model in the studio or bringing along pictures of their favourite animal or character to work from. Karen will be on hand to suggest the best ways to create their model and to help out when it gets a bit tricky!



If you have any questions regarding any of these sessions and courses just give us a call or pop in and see us. Also don’t forget that we do children’s parties so get in touch if you would like us to help make your child’s birthday extra special and hassle free!
