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.

Picking Up & Returning Kit

Kit pick up from us 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!

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

Once you have painted pottery to us 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 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 £17.50 for a box(es) to one UK address

In terms of payment, we prefer CASH on the day or ON-LINE IN ADVANCE into our account (if timing allows) 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.

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. Contact us to discuss prices and any intolerances/allergies.
