Ceramics Painting Studio
Now open 7 days a week! Take time out, get creative and have fun. Enjoy producing a masterpiece to be proud of, a personalised gift, or simply lose yourself in splodges, wild colours, brushes, sponges and pens. The exciting bit is collecting your unique piece of art, bold and glossy once it has been fired.
We offer snacks and drinks to help creative juices flow and toys to keep young customers entertained. Celebrate a special occasion in our party room with paint and pottery; babies' hand and footprints on a plate or plaque are very popular, as are signing plates for weddings and birthdays.
Booking is advisable. Look out for special events such as toddler mornings on Mondays and Wednesdays at 11am, Ladies Nights and themed sessions.
