Pixie Potts will take them away for firing then return them the following month. 

16th March – Paper Cutting – We have the fabulous Keely from KP Papercuts coming to host some sessions on the art of papercutting. We have offered papercutting kits in the past along with a zoom tutorial as its such a relaxing and mindful activity, we love it!
