Claire, who runs Paint Pot in Clitheroe, recently ran a competition for Ribble Valley schools and nurseries to win a free story session and pottery painting morning. Youngsters from the village school beat fierce competition to scoop the top prize.
The winning session began with the story of Stick Man, then every pupil spent the next few hours painting and decorating.
A spokesman said: "A huge thanks to Claire Neave, the owner of Paint Pot and to our parents who ensured we had the highest number of votes, despite being a small school.
"The 3,4 and 5 year olds thoroughly enjoyed the session."
