Prices range from £9 to £40 depending on the object and the size of the item. The price includes all supplies and glazing and firing required for your project. There is NO studio/sitting fee, we simply charge you the price of the item you choose to paint from our range of pottery.
We have a large selection that is constantly changing with new and seasonal items so we do not put all our pottery items online. Come in and see what's new!
We can also order in items on request if you require something more specific. People of all ages and abilities find themselves loving the pottery painting experience. You don't have to be a highly skilled artist to create something to be proud of.
Create your unique and personal design on your chosen ceramic item and then paint it with our wide range of brushes and washable non toxic paints. If you are stuck for ideas or unsure how to create certain effects, we are very happy to assist with creative ideas and techniques if required.
Once painted, your unique design will be glazed and fired ready for you to collect within 7-10 days. Each time we open the kiln we have the thrill of seeing how your creations changed through the transformation of kiln firing!
The glaze is food safe, which will turn your item into a glossy final finish, ready for use, to give as a present or proudly display.
As an alternative to our standard under glaze paints we also offer acrylic paints. When painting with acrylics your item can be ready immediately after you have finished painting. Acrylics provide vibrant, metalllic and glitter colours.
Acrylic paints however, are not food / dishwasher safe, so they can only be used on decorative items such as piggy banks, trinket boxes and animals.
If you are looking for a special piece of pottery for a special occasion, such as a wedding, christening, anniversaries or anything else but don't want to paint it yourself, you could ask us to do it for you.
You can select from our vast range of items available and we will personalise with a message of your choice or if you have something in particular in mind provide us with as much detail as possiblem so we can translate your design as accurately as possible. We will charge you the standard cost of the piece plus artist costs which will depend on the complexity of the project.
