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-Sun.
Making A Booking
- 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 regular RANGE OF ITEMS TO PAINT and let us know what pottery pieces you want (stock changes over time so do this a few days before your hire but latest by 4.00pm the day before you want to hire)
- add any extras such as delivery, muffins/cakes/take-away coffees and teas to your order at this point (see below for details)
- we will confirm we have the pieces in stock and total price (including onward delivery of final pieces if required)
- we will supply our bank details so you can pay on-line in advance or cash on collection of the kit
Pottery painting is £6.50 per person plus the cost of the piece(s) chosen from our range (£4.75 – £10.50). CLICK HERE to see our range of pieces and prices.
You will also need to leave a £20 deposit (cash) per kit which we will return in full if you bring our kit back in good condition, clean, dry and complete.
If collection of final pieces once glazed and fired is not possible, onward delivery is £17.50 for a box(es) to one UK address.
In terms of payment, we prefer either ON-LINE IN ADVANCE or CASH on the day as we can no longer share card payment charges customers. We hope you understand.
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
There are laminated instruction sheets in the kit and we have 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.
Collecting & Returning Kits
Kit collection is 10.00-11.00am on day of hiring.
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.
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).
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).
Take-Away Food & Drink
If you are a 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. Food and Drink must be ordered at least 2 days before your booking.
