School Holiday Classes

April/Easter 2017 School Holiday Classes

To secure a place within a School Holiday class payment must be made upon enrolment. Your early enrolment is appreciated to help meet minimum numbers for a class to go ahead and to ensure we can give adequate notice to parents and tutors if a class needs to be cancelled.

Materials are supplied for all children's classes. Minimum 6 students unless otherwise stated.

LUNCHTIMES: Children staying all day are supervised at lunchtimes (12pm - 1pm) by Lake House staff members or volunteers. Please make sure children bring a packed lunch and water bottle.  No highly-sugared drinks or lollies please. In summer, sunscreen and a hat is a must. 

NOTE for Ceramic classes: All artworks are fired in the kiln, dip-glazed by the tutor, then re-fired.  Ceramic artworks from the January school holiday programme will be ready for pickup approximately a month after the holidays have finished  unless otherwise notified. Works cannot be held any longer than this due to storage constraints.
