Regular times/availability can also vary due to Special Events.

Release The Creativity In You

Pottery painting is creative, great fun, relaxing and perfect for any ages or occasions and we have pottery painting kits for overnight hire to be enjoyed at home/in your holiday accommodation with family or friends (min. group = 2).

Hiring A Pottery Painting Kit

Our take-away pottery painting kits are available for overnight hire Wed-Sat.

What Is In A Kit?

Our pottery painting kits are suitable for 2-4 people (extra kits will be needed for larger groups).

In each kit there are 12 colours and a colour tile to show you how they will look once glazed and fired.

There is also a range of paint brushes and sponges to apply the paint, pencils (with sharpeners and rubbers) for planning out designs, writing bottles for fine detail, paint palette tiles, water containers for washing brushes and laminated instruction sheets.

Getting The Best From Your Kit

In addition to the laminated instruction sheets we have also recorded a short POTTERY PAINTING KIT VIDEO to help you get the best from your pottery painting experience. You can call us if you have questions/problems.

Social distancing, good ventilation, sanisiting & mask wearing will be observed for collection and returning of kits.

Kit collection is 10.00-11.00am on day of hiring (with staggered collection times).

On your arrival we will take your deposit, record your details and give you your kit and pottery pieces. You then take your kit away and enjoy pottery painting for the day!

Kits and painted pottery pieces are to be returned between 9.00-10.00am the following day (with staggered return times).

We will check the kit, return your deposit (minus any deductions necessary) and give you a receipt for the pottery pieces you are leaving for glazing & firing (and organise onward courier delivery if required).

NB: kits are cleaned, checked and sanitised between all hirings.

Collection/Delivery Of Final Pieces

Once you have returned your painted pottery it needs to be glazed and fired.

We fire weekly and will let you know when your pieces are ready for collection.

If collection of final pieces is not possible or you are sending them as a present, delivery can be pre-arranged and paid for if required (see above for prices).
