Pottery Painting Parties
Planning a party and looking for something special? Brooklyn pottery can help!
We specialise in parties for all ages, from tots to grannies, with special birthdays, bridal/ hen parties and baby showers along the way. Choose from a range of over 200 items of pottery bisque, or if you have a specific theme for the party, tell us and we’ll do our best to find something special for the big day. We’ll provide pens and paper so your guests can spend time planning and drawing their designs first, before copying the designs on to their pottery. There is a wide range of paint colours, or they can get get creative and mix their own. We professionally glaze and fire all the pottery in our kiln, and we will send you a text when the pottery is ready for collection. This is usually with 7-10 days.
There are a range of different options to choose from, and we are happy to help you plan your perfect party.
This option is perfect for people planning a low-key or small party. There is no minimum number of guests, as we simply book a table for you in the lovely studio area downstairs. You will just pay the cost of the pottery plus the studio fee (still £2.50) per painter. The final price will depend on what you choose to paint – so you really can keep the price down with this special package. We pride ourselves on keeping the prices as low and family-friendly as possible.
This party is perfect for those wishing to run the party themselves, but who prefer to use our private party room upstairs. The price includes a pottery party animal or mug for each guest, private room hire, firing and glazing and free juice for the children.

Manhattan Crafternoon Parties – Coming Soon!!
Still in the development stage, but we are hoping to provide special sessions where you will use specialist paint and techniques to create your own unique piece of art.
Time: Most children’s parties last 1.5 hours. This gives you plenty of time for the painting process and to have a simple finger buffet and birthday cake session. Most parents prefer this, as the time passes very quickly making it a streamlined and stress free party so the parents can relax and enjoy themselves too. Adults sometimes want to spend a little longer over their painting, and we are happy to arrange this for you.
Numbers: The minimum number for the private party room is 10, maximum 15. We are happy to take small groups of 4 or more in the downstairs studio, which can also take up to 22 guests for larger groups.
Parking. There is a free car park behind Brooklyn Pottery, it can be very busy at times, but there is free parking on some of the surrounding roads.
Booking: Give us a ring on 0161 480 5139, or email us your request, and we will get back to you to discuss individual details. We would also suggest you visit us to have a look around, get ideas for your theme, and chat to us about how we can help make it a memorable occasion for you and your guests.
