Welcome to The Painted Pot





The Painted Pot is a paint your own pottery and arts and crafts studio, located in High Barnet, North London.

Pottery painting is fun for all the family, young and old alike!

We at The Painted Pot provide a brilliant opportunity for you to create your own unique one of a kind piece of ceramic pottery and artwork.

We welcome group bookings and can seat up to 42 painters, so our studio is great for large groups as well as smaller ones.  We also have late night sessions available throughout the year on request.


We offer several fun activities such as ceramic painting, foam and pearl clay, decopatch, babies hand or footprints, children's birthday parties, build a bear parties, mosaics, hen parties and adult evenings.  If your looking for an unusal gift idea, gIft vouchers can also be purchased from our studio.  We charge NO STUDIO FEE for glazing and firing so the price you see is the price you pay.


At our cafe we offer a wide range of high quality tea, coffee as well as specialty hot drinks and snacks.  Kids can enjoy blended to order healthy smoothies as well as milkshakes to keep them fuelled during their arty session!

We are open 7 days a week, booking is not always required, you can just pop in.  However during busy times such as weekends and school holidays, or if you are a large group, we advise contacting us to book.


Relax, enjoy some food and drink in our cafe and create somthing that is made exclusively by you.


Clay Throwing Pottery Wheel Taster Session-With Instructor, Discover Your Artistic Side.....






The sessions are for anyone who has always wanted to have a go on the pottery wheel or for those who have tried it before, but would like to give it another go.  Pottery can be both relaxing and hugely enjoyable!


In our taster sessions we will give you step by step demonstration and instructions on how to throw on the wheel to create your very own pots.  

Once your pots have completely dried out they will be fired in the kiln for you.  You come back and collect them.

Sessions are 1 hour long, all work is usually ready to collect within 4 - 6 weeks.  Suitable for both children and adults.

"My daughter had a party here last week for her fifth birthday and had a brilliant time.

They had decorated the party area really nicely, they were very kind and helpful to the children and went above and beyond what I had expected for the price.

The food was lovely and there was so much of it too.  I really recommend The Painted Pot for a Party, my daughter loved every minute of it and her friends did too.  Thank you!"
