– Pottery Painting Kits
We are now ‘Good to Go’ @HotPotPottery and have TAKE AWAY POTTERY PAINTING KITS available for overnight hire Wed-Sat, POTTERY TRIAL CLASSES bookable Thurs & Sat and our POTTERY GALLERY/SHOP can be booked for private (no pressure to buy!) browsing. Booking essential.
For the forseeable future our 8 Week Courses, Larger Parties/Celebrations, Corporate/Special Events and Group Meals will not be possible.
Release The Creativity In You
Pottery painting is creative, great fun, relaxing and perfect for any ages or occasions!
We can’t currently offer pottery painting on-site. BUT! we do have ‘take away’ pottery painting kits which can be hired overnight and enjoyed at home/in 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.
To book a kit, simply:
- choose the day you want and contact us to see if a kit is available (the sooner the better to avoid disappointment, at the latest the day before you want to hire)
- take a look at our RANGE OF ITEMS TO PAINT and let us know what pottery pieces you want (as stock changes over time probably it is probably best to do this a few days before you want to hire but at the latest 4.00pm the day before you want your hire to start)
Extras such as delivery, muffins/cakes/take-away coffees and teas will need to be added to your order at this point (see below for details).
We will then confirm we have the pieces you want in stock and the total price to you. You pay when you collect your kit or on-line if booking well in advance.
For more information on hiring pottery painting kits and keeping Covid-19 risks as low as possible – CLICK HERE.
Pottery painting is £6.50 per person plus the cost of the piece(s) you choose from our range (£4.75 – £10.50). CLICK HERE to see our range of pieces and prices.
You will also need to leave us a £20 deposit (cash please) per kit which we will return in full if you bring our kit back in good condition, clean, dry and complete.
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 great colours and a colour tile to show you how they will look once glazed and fired.
You will also get 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
As well as 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 also call us if you have questions/problems.
Collecting And Returning Kits
Social distancing will be observed for collection and returning of kits.
Kit collection is 10.00-11.00am on day of hiring (we will stagger collection times).
On your arrival we will take your deposit for safe keeping, ask you to fill in and sign a hirer form and bring your kit and pottery pieces to you. You can 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 (we will stagger 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 with us for glazing & firing (and organise onward courier delivery if required).
NB: all kits will be sanitised between hirings.
Glazing, Firing & Collection
Once you have returned your painted pottery to us it need to be glazed and fired. We fire on Sunday evening and collection will be possible from 9.30am Monday.
If you cannot collect then delivery is £17.50 for a box(es) to one UK address. Deliveries will leave on Monday to arrive by 4.00pm the following day. We will text/email to let you know they are on their way.
Food & Drink
If you are a larger group of 4 or more (perhaps celebrating an event) you may be interested in pre-ordering take-away coffees/teas and/or muffins/cake to enjoy while you are painting. Contact us to discuss prices and any intolerances/allergies.
In terms of payment, we prefer CASH over card payment on the day if possible (unless on-line pre-payment is appropriate) as we can no longer share card payment charges customers. We hope you understand.
If paying here, social distancing, good ventilation and sanitising will be observed at the till.
