Welcome to The Painted Pot

The Painted Pot is a paint your own ceramics cafe, located in High St. Barnet, North London.

At our Studio you can create your own unique hand painted colorful ceramics and other crafts.  It's fun, easy and great for all ages!

We can seat up to 42 painters, so our studio is great for large groups as well as smaller ones.


We offer several fun activities such as ceramic painting, decopatch, babies hand or footprints, children's birthday parties, build a bear parties, workshops, hen parties and adult evenings.  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 delicious homemade cakes.  Kids can enjoy blended to order healthy smoothies as well as milkshakes to keep them fuelled during their arty session!


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


Pottery Wheel Taster Sessions, 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!


You'll receive individual guidance in our pottery studio with all materials included.  You can have a go at throwing on the wheel and have the opportunity to make your own pot.

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 colect 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!"
