Review 2018: Pots To Doodle Do
First of all, I haven’t been asked to review Pots to Doodle Do by anyone – I’m doing it as someone who booked to make some Christmas baubles and was so impressed and pleased with the results I wanted to share!
I booked in to Pots to Doodle Do after seeing a Facebook post about making decorations for the Christmas tree. I have a toddler and a 4 month old and having been to various other places to do such things previously I thought I knew what to expect…..
How wrong was I?? I was slightly apprehensive about dealing with paint and a toddler while no doubt having to feed the baby (always happens doesn’t it?!) but Tracey could not have been more helpful! In other places we’ve just been left with the items we’ve chosen and the paint and got on with it – not this time, Tracey put the paint on the toddlers’ hand and the baby’s foot, stamped it onto the bauble then cleaned them up. Sounds simple but I’m sure parents will understand where I’m coming from……….
We then had access to a huge array of paint, sponges, brushes and stickers to let the creative juices flow. We were given a booklet with some photos of previous creations to give us direction if needed and Tracey made sure everyone got what they wanted from the experience, around to help if needed, checked on us and the progress but we didn’t feel rushed at all – a delicate balance it achieve!
The finished products were collected a week later and are brilliant – well worth the effort and importantly not expensive.
The location in Cliddesden is fairly simple to find and there’s parking by the village pond. Once inside it’s warm and welcoming, there’s hot drinks and snacks available to purchase and Tracey goes out of her way to put you at ease (I was terrified of my toddler and ceramics……..) By far the best experience of all so far!
