Get fired up about 'Get Fired'
For all those crafty (oops!) I mean, creative people out there- Get Fired is the place for you ! I found this quaint little shop when I happened to visit Purley for some other reason. Now, I love drawing, painting although had never tried pottery designing before, I decided to give this a go. It was really a whole lot of fun!
Judging by varied ages of the 'potters' around me (2 years and upwards), I can safely say it does appeal to the artist in everyone with such interests. I chose a teddy shaped bisque (that's what unpainted pottery is called) and set to work using their paints, brushes, special pens etc. Once I was done, I handed it over to their very friendly staff. They explained how they would now put it into their kiln to glaze it and that I could come a few days later to collect my bear.
I was very pleased when a few days later I collected my fire-glazed little teddy. He looked perfect in every way! So, if you're looking for something different to do over this half term or are thinking of ideas for a birthday party- then look no further.
