Welcome to Reasons To Be Cheerful!
Our pottery painting studio on Leighton Buzzard High Street has sadly now had to close due to the current restrictions but we are really excited to be able to offer pottery painting at home and the ability to purchase our craft kits online.
We thank you for being patient with us whilst we have worked hard in the background to make sure everything is in place to offer you the best possible customer service.
How It Works....
We have made it as easy as we can for you to be able to choose your pottery items on the website and have fun painting them at home. There is no studio fee and the price of the item is inclusive of 10 free paints, glazing and firing. You can purchase extra paints if you want to choose from our palette on the bottom of the SHOP screen.
Your pottery will be ready for you to collect once we have received your order and have put your paint at home kit together. We will contact you once your kit is ready. Please let us know if there is any urgency for a special occasion. Collection of your kit is in Leighton Buzzard but if you have problems with the collecting, we may be able to offer a local delivery for a small cost. You can keep your kit for 3 days.
Please return all the items in your kit including brushes, paints and palettes. Thank you!
Are you looking for a fun activity for your child’s birthday? A Pottery painting party is a fabulous way to entertain the children. You can choose any number of items or combinations of pottery to suit your budget by using the paint at home SHOP option on the website. We will supply you with everything you need including paint, brushes and pallets.
There is no minimum spend or quantities with this option and it means your child can choose their favourite pieces of pottery and numbers of friends!
This option does not come with our party trunk unless you order 8 or more items
We have put together a party trunk option to add that special touch to your child’s birthday. The themes are Dinosaur or Unicorns. You can change the theme of the pottery to go in the trunk but cannot change the trunk. If you want to change the theme you would need to add your items from the SHOP page and add to the shopping cart, or contact us directly.
These trunks are themed with either Unicorn or Dinosaur pottery pieces. There is currently a minimum order of 5 pieces for the trunk whilst we are limited to 6 people in our bubbles but you can add more if needed, and any further items from the same range are priced at £12.50. Just add the extra items from the SHOP option on the website when ordering your trunk.
Each trunk contains:
A minimum of 5 pieces of pottery whilst we are social distancing. You can add more if needed
10 paint colours - you can purchase further colours if required
Pottery painting is ideal for getting together with friends or family.
We make sure that you have everything you need to have a relaxing time painting your chosen pieces of pottery. We have a wide selection of pottery pieces for adults and these can be chosen from the SHOP section on the website.
Our pottery painting is suitable for lots of different events. If you need advice about what would work for your event, please drop us a message we would be happy to help! These are just a selection of events we can provide pottery painting for…
Guides/Brownies/Rainbows/ and all other similar groups
