Release The Creativity In You

Pottery painting is creative, great fun, relaxing and perfect for any ages or occasions.

Until 21st June 2021 we won’t be able to offer pottery painting in our studio but we have great pottery painting kits for hire which can be enjoyed at home/in your holiday accommodation with family or friends (min. group = 2).

  • 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)Pottery painting egg cups

In terms of payment, we prefer CASH on the day or ON-LINE IN ADVANCE (if that is possible) as we can no longer share card payment charges customers. We hope you understand.

If paying here, social distancing, mask wearing, good ventilation and sanitising will be observed at the till.

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 day of return.

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 & DrinkAfternoon tea

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.
