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.)
