Ceramics How it works
Booking – We offer drop-ins, but it is preferable to book your session
to avoid disappointment
Studio fee – We charge a one off studio fee of £3 per person that paints. (£5 for baby ceramics and evening sessions) This covers paints, firing and glazing.
Ceramic items – We have a wide selection of items to paint for all ages
including tiles, money banks, plates, vases, party figures/animals and many more.
Paint and enjoy! – Once you have chosen your item it’s time to paint using
our selection of paints, brushes and sponges.
Glazing, firing and collection – Once you have painted your item we glaze
and fire it. We will call you and let you know when your ceramics are ready
to be collected in 7 - 14 days
