Paint a Giant Gnome!! Well who could resist that?
So off we trooped down to the Kiln Pottery Studio, in Low Fell, Gateshead. Booking was recommended in advance with a £5 deposit, £15 left to pay on the night. We had to choose at time of deposit if we wanted to paint a girl or boy gnome, we chose boy.
It took a full 2 hours to paint the fella but he turned out great. We pick him up in a week after he’s been fired in the kiln. The Kiln offer a range of events such as Paw Prints, Fairy Doors and even Adults only evenings (see its not just for the kids!!) Events are priced separately but you can also drop in on non event days/nights to choose an item to paint from the studio, prices start at £5.
They cater for all tastes so check them out. Now we just need to decide on a name for our gnome and where he’ll sit in the garden – so far George is the favourite. Do people actually name their gnomes? Maybe we’ll start a new trend!!
