How does Pottery Painting work?

On arrival, you choose what pottery pieces you are going to paint.

We have a big range of ‘blank’ pottery items in stock from party animals, figurines to mugs and plates to vases, teapots and lots in between!

We talk you through the painting process and start you on your pottery painting journey.  We are on hand to offer advice and tips along the way!

Younger children are encouraged to release their creativity and make bright and colourful masterpieces. They can also do handprints or even finger painting.

When you are finished, we will glaze and fire your items in our kilns.  We will tell you at the end when your pieces will be ready to collect.

By the time you collect them they are not only beautifully vibrant decorative items but fully useable and food safe too.

How much does it cost?

Each pottery item is individually priced, and that price includes the pottery piece, the painting, the glazing and our regular firing.

How long does it take to paint my pottery?

We allow a 2 hour session for you to choose and paint your pottery.  Some people take a little longer and some a little less time.

What age is it suitable for?

The wonderful thing about paint your own pottery is that it’s suitable for all ages.  From days old babies to Granny and Grandad, it is an activity that every one can sit and enjoy.

Microwave / Dishwasher Safe?

We don’t recommend using a microwave, as the pottery can get very hot.

Dishwashers are not as careful as someone who is hand washing!

I'm not arty, I couldn't possibly do it.

The most common comment heard in the studio is ‘but I am not creative, I could never make anything look good!’

There is not ‘right’ way to make art.  The onlyl wrong way is not trying!

We will take you through the painting process and there are lots of ideas on walls.

How long will you keep my pottery for?

We will keep your pottery for up to 3 months.

What if I can't return to collect my pottery?
