Painting on ready made pottery

We have a good selection of factory made “bisque” ready to be glazed—some ideal for children to paint on, and other more grown-up pieces.

After you have painted your item we will cover them in transparent shiny glaze and fire them in the kiln for you to collect later.

Each piece is individually priced, starting at £7 (the £7 pieces are not huge, but they are not tiny either - no pressure to go bigger, or paint more, if you don't want to). No studio fee! No maths! The price you see on the item is what you pay - you paint it, we add transparent glaze and fire it. Usually our £7 items take about an hour to paint - sometimes more if you choose to paint a detailed design. Younger children tend to paint a bit quicker than older children and we have some colouring pages available for younger children who are waiting for a sibling to finish!

Independent Studio Time

We charge £14 (£12 concessions) for potters to use the studio for 90 minutes.

If you have used clay in a pottery before you might prefer to work on your own project independently. The fee includes provision of up to three balls of clay, table space and the necessary tools to hand-build or use the wheel. If you are planning to used the wheel please tell us so we can make sure it is not booked out to someone else!

Assuming you have made something that will be safe in the kiln, the price inludes firing your creation (it will either be white or red depending on which clay you chose) and it will be available to collect in two or three weeks time, or you can book another slot to glaze it and we will fire it again ready for you to collect later.

NB Please ask about our Associates scheme if you are interested in using the studio for 8 or more hours each week.

Craft and Chatter

Once a fortnight we put away the clay and offer an opportunity to do some papercrafting. We will provide resources for you to make two or three greetings cards each time. You won’t need to bring anything.

If you are an experienced paper crafter you will enjoy the challenge of seeing what you can do with the materials provided, but if you are new to paper-crafting you will be given help and guidance to make full use of the items available.

Everyone is welcome, but especially if you haven’t played with glue and scissors since you were a kid, we’d love to see you. Paper-crafting is an absorbing and satisfying hobby. No particular skills are needed, so if you like the idea of bringing home some handmade cards —then come and join us.

Each session lasts 60 to 90 minutes and costs £10 (£8 concessions) per person. You will take home all the cards you make for no extra charge but we ask you to leave the bits and pieces you don't use (we'll always have provided more than you need). Unused bits of card, embellishments etc, will be re-used in another crafting session to keep the prices down!
