Welcome to Daisy Elephant Memory Quilts and Craft Den

Come along to our craft den and see why our customers call it a hidden gem in Ashford! Tucked away in Ashford Town Centre, next to Brownbills' Opticians and down the side of the Phoenix Pub, it is a large but cosy, relaxing space with home comforts - crafters' bliss!

Regular price£3.00
/
Tax included.

Book here for any of our daily pottery decorating sessions, including school holidays. You choose what you would like to do on the day - we have a lot of pottery to choose from. You are able to either paint with our special pottery paints and leave your item with us to fire and collect a week later, or use our other special non-fire paints with the option of getting creative with foam clay, decoupage and other accessories. Perfect if you would like to take your item home the same day! If you choose not to have your item kiln fired, we can spray any painted areas to seal the paint and then you can take it home. 

We also have other items such as sand art and canvases available. 

Prices range from £4-£30 with the average spend being about £12pp (most of the pottery is £10 or £12). The deposit is just £3 per person and this will be taken off the group bill on the day.

The deposit is non-refundable but transferrable to another date if contacted prior to the booking. This is just to protect our small business from large groups booking but not turning up. 

Sand Art

Regular price£4.00
/
Tax included.

Sand art is fun and relaxing for all ages. Peel off the stickers, pour the sand over and the sand sticks perfectly! You can't go wrong! Effective pictures every time, whether you are 2 or 92! 

Come along and create one of our postcard size sand art pictures - or upgrade to one of our larger pictures for just £2 more.

Hydro Dipping

Regular price£12.00
/
Tax included.

Come and try hydro dipping (aka marble art) in this fun class! Create unique patterns and print them instantly onto any porous surface such as paper, wood, fabric and pottery. Easy and fun to do, also not particularly messy, but it is best to wear old clothes as the ink will stain!

We'll start the session trying it out on a few smaller bits to get used to the technique. Then choose a piece of £12 pottery (included in the session cost) to dip and then finish it off with normal paint if required (like the penguin in the photo for example). 

Slime Making

Regular price£5.00
/
Tax included.

Come and have fun getting messy and sticky, making slime! Add glitter and foam balls for extra effects! Plus leave the tidying up to us! Just £5 per child. Each child takes home 2 small tubs of slime. Best suited for children aged 6 and over. Younger children are welcome but will require supervision from their attending parent.
