Take a seat! 

It is best to book either through our website or by giving us a call however we do have walk in spaces available. When you walk through the doors you will be greeted by a member of the team, who will take you to your seat and explain the process. On each table there is a placemat for each seat explaining the process and outlining our most important tips and tricks.

From plates, mugs and bowls to money banks and animal figurines. If you want to have a look at our options the OUR WORK page shows a wide range of our ceramics. If you need any help choosing your piece, just ask a member of  the team for help. 

Painting

Once you have decided which pottery piece you are decorating, it is then time to choose your paints. The chart on your table shows you all of our colour options and how they will look after they have been fired in our kiln. On your table you will find all the colours needed, brushes, sponges, stencils and everything you need to create your own unique design.

Let's get Painting 

Now you will need to paint, wipe your ceramic item with a wet sponge just to make sure it's nice and clean before you start painting. All paints are washable and non toxic but's it best to try and not taste them, if young children are painting please see that they are supervised. You will find a guide with tips and suggestions on your table but it is your design and we encourage you to get creative.
