“Securing this space will allow us to provide more workshops for the people of Kempston, Bedford and beyond.

"It’s been so great seeing the business thrive since we took the opportunity to branch out into workshops, but we were slowly running out of room in our current premises.

"We are thrilled with our new home and can’t wait to invite all the local people in to see what we’re up to”, Phoebe commented.

The new space will allow the Fire Nest team to host celebratory occasions such as birthdays, hen do’s, or for people just wanting to come together to get creative.

The Pottery Painting Studio is a big part of this space, catering for both children’s parties and adult events. This will be open daily with bookable slots for attendees to choose a pottery item, paint it and have it fired in the kiln onsite.

Will added: “Our goal has always been to have a space where people can explore their artistic side, learn new skills, feel a sense of achievement and most important of all, have fun. Participants not only leave with a beautiful handmade item, but also with a renewed sense of creativity.”

Workshops include luxury candle making, reed diffuser making, clay hand-building workshop, botanical dinnerware pottery workshop and beginner-friendly pottery wheel workshops.
