– Pottery Painting


COVID-19 Statement:

During the Covid-19 Pandemic we have closely followed Government and Leisure Industry advice to keep Covid-19 risks as low as possible on-site. CLICK HERE to see our current information. 


Hot Pot Pottery is ON THE MOVE (just down the road). HOWEVER: we will be CLOSED for classes and activities until at least Sept 2022 due to renovations needed at the new place on both the studio and house.

Below is a taste of what we were offering and when we re-open we will have lots of new ideas & activities as well. So watch this space!

Release The Painter In You

Pottery painting is creative, great fun, relaxing and perfect for all ages & occasions.

At the moment we can offer Pottery Painting Kits for Overnight Hire and these can be collected from us and enjoyed at home/in your holiday accommodation with family or friends. Any day. Min. 2 people. Max 24.

We also have Pottery Painting Spaces (4 min. 8-12 max.) in our on-site pottery studio. These are bookable Wed-Sat 10.30-1.30 (& once a month on a Sunday alongside our One Day Wheel Throwing Courses between 10 & 5).

CONTACT US to book your space. Costs for painting in our studio and delivery are the same as for hiring a kit as below.

Hiring A Pottery Painting Kit

  • choose the day you want and contact us to see if a kit is available (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 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)
  • we will confirm availability of pieces and total price (including onward delivery of final pieces if required)
  • we will supply our bank details so you can pay into our account in advance or cash on collection of the kit (you will also need to leave a £20 cash deposit when hiring a kit)

What Is In A Kit & How To Use It

Each of our pottery painting kits are suitable for use by 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.

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 or if you are painting on-site we can help you in person.

Picking Up & Returning Hire Kits

Kit pick up 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!

Once you have painted your pottery it needs to be returned to us (with your hire kit) for glazing and firing.

Kit & painted pottery return is 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 left with us for glazing & firing (and organise onward courier delivery if required).

Collection/Delivery Of Painted PotteryPottery painted gecko

We usually glaze and fire weekly and will let you know when your final 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 below for prices).

Prices & Payment

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) if you are hiring a 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 £18.00 for a box(es) to one UK address.

In terms of payment, we prefer CASH on the day or INTO OUR BANK ACCOUNT IN ADVANCE (if timing permits) as we can no longer share card payment charges with customers. We hope you understand.

Food & DrinkAfternoon tea

If you are a group of 4 or more hiring a kit (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 at home/in your holiday accommodation. Contact us to discuss prices and any intolerances/allergies.

If you are a group of 4-8 painting in our studio you could pre-book a Group Meal to enjoy after painting.

Food and Drink must be ordered at least 4 days before your booking.
