Organised Groups and Events

We are always pleased to welcome organised groups to our lovely studio here in Shaw Heath.


Call us today to talk about bringing your group to Brooklyn, or about us bringing painting resources to your venue for you to paint there.


Looking for something different for your Christmas Do this year?

Why not arrange an after work Christmas painting session for your colleagues at Brooklyn Pottery in Shaw Heath?

Relax and chat to your friends and colleagues while you create something special for Christmas.   You might even want to make this your Secret Santa this year, by painting a mug or Christmas decoration for someone else.

You are welcome to bring your own wine and food, or we can order delicious pizza in for you.

Email us at:    We will be happy to talk to you about times and availability.





Paint early for Christmas

It’s never too early to paint for Christmas, in fact it’s a good idea to paint early so join us soon at Brooklyn to create your Christmas 2017 Masterpiece.

Whether it’s footprints with your new baby or a gift for Granny, you will find lots to choose from at Brooklyn and we pride ourselves on purse friendly prices too.

We have plenty of availability at present, but we do get very busy as the festive season approaches, so we would advise you to book early to avoid disappointment, particularly if you are planning to visit with a group of friends.  We are quieter on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays than we are at weekends, and we are always happy to offer help and advice.



Xmas Painting Late Nights

We are delighted to announce our Mulled Wine and Mince Pie evenings are coming soon!
Book your table on Wednesday 29 November or Wednesday 6 December and join in the festive fun

We are staying open until 8.30 pm – so leave the children behind and enjoy some “me time” and get into the Christmas spirit!


How it works

Brooklyn is a special ceramic painting studio for all the family.  Enjoy a cup of tea or indulge yourself with one of our lovely cookies and a delicious Illy coffee.

We look forward to welcoming you, as you relax in a family friendly environment and choose from a range of over 200 pieces of pottery to paint.  It’s easy for anyone to create their own masterpiece for the home or to personalise as a unique gift for someone special.

We have a great selection of quality pottery pieces ready for you to paint including: plates, mugs, trinket boxes and money boxes, dog bowls, New Baby keepsakes, piggybanks, etc.,  and prices start from £2.50 for the smaller pieces.

It’s really easy……….

1.  Choose what you want to paint, choose the colours, then sit and relax and enjoy painting.  As well as a wide range of items to paint, we have over 60 colours of paint for you to choose from and these are displayed on our colour wall.  You won’t be stuck for ideas for what to do – there are lots of examples of  completed items, together with our Inspiration Basket,  stencils and stamps for great ideas.  So come along and start creating!  Our friendly staff can explain the basics, and we are on hand to help you design your special piece.

2. Stay as long as you like.  We are a flat fee studio, so you don’t have to worry about how many colours you use or how long you spend putting the finishing touches to your piece.

3.  Once you are happy, simply leave your creation with us and we’ll apply our special glaze and fire the item in our kiln.  The finished product is high quality, glossy, foodsafe, and should be ready for collection in about 7 days. We will  even send you an email/phone call to let you know when your piece is ready for collection!

Please note that there is a flat rate charge of £2.50 studio fee per painter.  This covers unlimited use of paint, brushes, stencils, sponges and books, and professional glazing and firing. (and of course, as much help as you need.)
