If you want to come down and spend some time painting a ceramic pot, we have lots of stencils, an inspiration book, sponges and fun writer pens to help you with your creativity.
Fancy a NCT meet up? If you can book a group of 4 mums/dads with babies each customer will receive 15% off their total bill!
Fancy a pottery painting party? You can hire our space for kids parties, adults, for hen dos, work activities, baby showers or just to hang out with your mates.
We now offer 'Pottery Take Away Kits' which can be painted at home. These can be ordered online or from the studio, or you can pop by and pick one up, just give us a call and let us know when you're coming down. You can choose your pottery pieces and paints and take them home to paint at your own leisure! Drop them off when they're ready to be glazed and fired and we will give you a buzz when they are ready, (takes 2-3 weeks).
Our opening hours are Monday - Friday, 9:30-2:30pm (we open at the weekends for parties only) however our hours are subject to change over the holidays. These will be updated on our website.
We are a very small team, so please be patient with us, we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell or have any covid symtons.
We can only keep your pottery for one month, so please come and pick it up before then. We are happy to hold onto it for longer if you let us know.
More about the process...
The pottery process does take time, especially in busy periods. Each piece must be glazed which makes it shiny and food safe once fired. It is then smoothed down individually and topped up with glaze before it's loaded into the kiln.
Our pottery if fired in an electric kiln which heats up to 1050 centigrade, so it's much hotter than your oven at home. It takes 8 hours to reach this temperature and then another 12 hours to cool down, before we can unload it. We have a large kiln and try to be as energy efficient and can only load it when we have plenty of pottery to fire. This is why pottery takes 2-3 weeks.
As these are hand crafted items, glazed and fired in a kiln - we do occasionally have imperfections. If we can't fix these you can re-repaint the same item again and we will glaze and fire it for free. Sometimes clay can crack in our clay imprints due to air bubbles, warping and drying out too quickly. If we have any issues with your clay imprints we ask you to re-visit the studio so we can re-take your babies imprints again, but this doesn't happen very often.
We recommend that you hand wash our products and don't use them in the microwave.
