Coffee, Cake & Ceramics - New Date!

Following our first 'Coffee, Cake & Ceramics' session last week, Tessy at Coffee Brunch and myself thought we'd do the same next month... THEN we realised that it was during half term. So we thought why not invite parents with their ickle pickles?

So it will be the same event, on Wednesday 2nd November 2016, 8:30 - 10:30 am for €30 you'll get coffee, cake and painting 1 item of ceramics, probably a coffee mug. And you are welcome to still come alone. But if you wish to bring your child, buy them something separately and/or buy extra ceramics with Christmas in mind, you are more than welcome!

We are however asking that you pay a €5 deposit if you plan to come, to secure your space. Please email me at quintoncrafts@hotmail.com for the account details and to reserve your space and please do let me know if you intend to bring your child or have lots of Christmas ceramics in mind. :)

We look forward to seeing you! :)

Sunflower Montessori Creches!

So as I previously mentioned, I am very pleased to announce that I am working with Sunflower Montessori Creches again this winter.

Last year I offered parents of children at the creches the opportunity to order plates and mugs from myself, with their little one's hand or foot prints on. The creche gave out the order forms, I collected them completed and then liaised with the creche managers to take the little ones hands or foot prints. I then did the personalisation, glazed and fired them! I did this all in November so this year have started a little earlier to allow more time for Christmas. If your child is at Sunflower Montessori Creche in Luxembourg I will be attending in October 2016 to fulfill orders and look forward to meeting your little one! :)

Introduction to Quinton's Crafts (& Quinton's Crafts Ceramics!)

Without covering all the background included in 'About Us', I worked full time when my oldest daughter started school and quickly realised in Luxembourg that it wasn't for me at that time. I wanted to work, yes, but I wanted something flexible enough that I didn't feel guilty to my employer if my daughter was ill. I wanted something where I could be at parents meetings, I wasn't rushing to leave her at 7:45am in order to get to work. My life became one big stressed rush when I was working full time and I hated it. Neither of my daughters were particularly happy because they were both exhausted from school and full time creche.

I've always been fairly creative and having met a lady in the UK who had created her own business from 'paint your own pottery' this seemed a great niche. I wasn't aware of anything else in Luxembourg so even if it did exist, it wasn't well known in the expat community. It also wasn't impossible to start up, unlike most business models I'd read where they cost €10000 and a bank loan. 

The kiln^

I had already created the name 'Quinton's Crafts' because I made nappy cakes etc in the UK so I added (Ceramics) just to ensure there was a difference. I still make nappy cakes, towel cakes, etc, but the pottery is my main focus.
