Paint Your Own Pottery

Come get creative with us! You don’t need to be an artist to pick up a brush and paint a pot in our workshop! All you need to do is pick a pot, and get painting! Find out more on available shapes and pricing down below.


1 / Make a booking

To paint a pot in our workshop, please click here to book. Booking is essential, as there are limited spaces available.

All ages are welcome at our studio, and we also host large groups on request.

2 / Choose your piece

Please note: Shapes are subject to availability.

Pick a bisque piece from our shelves to decorate. We offer a variety of different shapes like mugs, dinnerware, bowls, or vases - which we swap out seasonally.

Each shape is priced individually, with the cost of firing included. Once you have finished your 1 hour session in the studio, please pay at the front desk and our staff will contact you once your finished pieces are ready to be collected.

3 / Start painting!

Help yourself to our palettes, brushes, and water the sink. Refer to the plates on the table as a reference to see how the colours will look once fired. Avoid painting the bottom of the piece, as this space needs to be left clear for you to write your order number and date provided by our staff. Don't forget that any marks from grey lead pencil will disappear once fired!

Please wash up at the end of your session, and pay at the front desk. It can take up to 1-2 weeks for your pieces to be fired, which you can then collect at our shop or arrange for your items to be posted for an additional cost.
