We are open 6 days a week, if you ever feel like getting creative we have a warm welcome waiting for you! It's a common misconception that painting pots is just for kids; we have activities for people of all ages and surprised and delighted by the amount of enjoyment it brings. Not only is it therepeutic, it takes you out of yourself for a few hours, you can create something with your own hands that you could never buy in a shop! Make something for yourself, create a memory of a trip, or a unique gift for a loved one. All year round, we have a wide range of ceramic items to paint, including seasonal shapes at Valentines, Easter, Halloween and Christmas.

Prices start at approx £3.50 for small pieces, and go right up to approx £30 for the largest pieces, making the activity suitable for all budgets. Shapes include tea-light holders, hanging decorations, many different kinds of money banks (including pigs, of course), windchimes, plates, night-lights, garden ornaments, figurines, wall plaques, clocks and so on. Each item is individually priced so you can take it away with you and paint at home, or for just £1 extra per person, you can paint with us - this includes the use of paints, sponges, brushes, apron, glue, glitter, sequins and even wobbly eyes!
Take your painted masterpieces away with you on the day, or you can leave them with us to varnish and collect the next day (costs £1) - this seals in and brightens the colour. Also to paint we have slates, canvases, masks, pebbles, horseshoes, plantpots, key rings etc. All items are subject to availability, but we can assure you of a wide range!
