Paw Print Pottery
At Tarka Pottery we love dogs and you can now make an impression of your dog’s paw pads pressed into the clay at our studio or as a takeout kit to do at home.
Clay paw prints are an amazing piece of your dog, as no two prints are exactly the same. What a fabulous keepsake when you first get your pet and a lovely memento of your best friend as they are getting older.
At the studio
We’ll book you in at a quiet time to bring your dog to visit. An appointment in the studio would last around 15-25 minutes and we can do the prints inside, or outside if the weather is suitable.
You can choose to have one large or two small clay plaques. The larger one can fit two paws or a hand and a paw, the smaller one can fit one or two paws – depending on paw size!
We’ll have everything ready to show you how to get a great print in very soft clay. You might like to bring your pet’s favourite treats or toy to keep them distracted!
Paw Print Takeout Kit
We have packed up some pawsome kits so that you can create your prints at home if you prefer, as we know some dogs might feel happier joining in at home. Full instructions with tips and ideas on how to get the best result will be provided along with three clay plaques so you can practice and get a great paw print.
We’ve had fun at home doing prints of cats and chickens too if you want to try with other pets!
After you get your prints, just bring the plaques back to us to finish off and fire for you back at the studio.
Pawsome Paw Print Voucher
You can buy a Paw Print Voucher, which would make for a fabulous gift for owners you know who are pet mad or for your favourite pooch’s birthday treat!
How to book a paw print experience
The experience costs £40, including one large or two small plaques and hand painting of two words per plaque (extra words are 50p). If you’d like an extra plaque or two of the same animal, these will cost just £20 each.
The clay plaques will be finished, tidied and bisque fired. We’ll then paint the prints in a colour of your choice with the name of your pet (and date if you’d like), before glazing and second firing.
This plaque looks fabulous freestanding or we can mount your fired plaque in a white frame for an additional £15/single print or £25/larger double printed plaque.
