We have been open in the lovely village of St Johns for a year now and want to celebrate with a birthday bash!
Whether you want to drop in for a glass of bubbly and a slice of cake (we all know how yummy Christine’s cakes are) or come and paint - it is up to you.
Everyone is welcome to help us celebrate!
R.S.V.P to or book a session for painting below.
Paint a Tile Competition
To celebrate our first year, we would like to run a very special pottery painting competition...
Paint a 10cm tile for our studio inspired by frogs, our orange and purple colours or pottery painting in general. The more colourful and creative the better!!
We have space for 72 tiles in our kitchen area, so the top 72 tiles will get a permanent space on the wall of fame. We want a colourful collection of tiles all painted by YOU - our creative and wonderful customers.
When Do I Paint?
Paint a tile during any studio session between now and 3rd April. Just mention it to the staff in the shop or when you book and we will get a tile out for you. You don’t need to book a separate session - you can simply paint one when you are in already!!
The winning three tiles will be announced on Friday 3rd April at our first year celebration party!
First Prize - £50 gift voucher for the studio
Second Prize - £25 gift voucher for the studio
Third Prize - £15 gift voucher for the studio
A Year at Fired Frog!
Can you believe that just over a year ago we took the keys to our lovely shop here in St Johns, Woking... and by ‘lovely shop’ what we actually mean is an empty shell that had no heating, lighting, water supply or toilets and even a lack of walls!!
We had a LOT of work on our hands but in true Frog-fashion we bundled on in, painted, plastered, laid floors, painted again, built walls, installed lights, propped up caving-in ceilings and assembled endless shelf units. We also had the task of getting a kiln upstairs, filling the shop with tables and chairs and of course selecting all the pieces of pottery ready for you to paint. It was 6-weeks of late nights and busy days but worth it to see the end result...
We finally opened our doors on 3rd April 2019, just before Easter, with just our downstairs studio complete and we were delighted and excited to welcome in our first customers for pottery painting.... followed by a busy Easter period and overall a busy first year.
We have met hundreds of families of painters, made friends with many of them, employed AMAZING staff members and worked our socks off over the past year.
All in all - Fired Frog year one has been amazing and we love this crazy little creative business!
