How it works - from start to finish

The concept is simple – decorate a chosen piece of pottery. We then glaze and fire your ceramic in our studio kiln, ready for you to collect. Ceramic items are individually priced, starting at around £3.50.  There is a studio fee of £3.50 per painter and this includes paint, glazing, firing and packaging for collection. 

You can paint in the studio or at home.  For painting at home, please see our on-line shop.   

Here’s how it works, step by step: 

(please note that there are a few minor changes in place after re-opening to minimise customer traffic and contact with surfaces....we will issue a Waterwipe instead of you washing your hands at the start; ceramics are arranged on shelves per price bracket and we will transfer your chosen ceramic to your table; you will choose paint colours from the colour wheel and we will dispense the glazes into small pots; painted ceramics will be left on your table for us to move at the end.)
