Paint a Booble: Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Oct 1, 2021

Here’s something special!

To kick off the first of our charity focused themes, we’re proud to announce that we’re supporting national Breast Cancer awareness month during October 2021.

We’ve teamed up with the York and Scarborough Hospitals Charity which provides support to patients who have received primary and secondary cancer diagnoses in the Whitby, Scarborough and Ryedale areas .  

We would love everybody to support our fundraiser by painting a Booble! What is that we hear you say? Well let us explain …

The Booble

Put simply, the Booble is a very specially painted bauble! They start their decoration journey by you choosing your preferred paint colour (or colours!), painting your boob and pressing the bauble against it! Don’t worry though, you can do this in the privacy of our loo, or we can provide a take-out kit for you to do in the comfort of your own home!

Once you’ve got this step out of the way, you can then decorate your Booble in any way you want. Here’s a small selection of what has been done so far …

Once complete, we’d love it if you would allow us to hang your Booble in the window display for the month of October to raise awareness for this good organisation which provides support to local people.  Don’t worry though, we’ll reunite you with your Booble early November.

Some other key points to note:

  • No need to book, just pop into the studio Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm to 5pm.  Avoid Monday’s and Tuesday’s as we are closed!
  • Ask for a bauble kit from one of our helpful staff and choose your paint colour
  • Leave your beautiful Booble with us to glaze and fire
  • Proudly hang your Booble (or let us do it for October!)

If you’d prefer to do this in the comfort of your own home through one of our take-out kits, you’ll need to return the painted Booble for glazing and firing.
