Paint your own pottery

Creating your own masterpiece is as simple as ABC…

A. You choose the item you would like to paint: this could be a functional item such as a plate, bowl, mug or teapot or something more abstract or for decorative purposes like a trinket box or ornament

B. Next you decide how you want to decorate your piece, choose your design, theme & colour scheme and then paint your item. (We have a wide variety of stencils, sponges, stamps, tracings or books & can offer on hand assistance to get you started). You can even draw your design on with felt tip pen before you start, as this will magically burn off during the firing process.

C. Now it’s over to us. Leave your finished item with us to be glazed & fired & ready for collection within 10 days. You will be amazed by the magic of the kiln! 


Each item of pottery is individually priced and we have a wide range of items for you to choose from including various cups, plates through to vases, wine coolers, plant pots, ornaments as well as trinket boxes & moneyboxes, picture frames etc etc. We are happy to write on a name and age, but for any other message, greeting or detailing we charge £1 per item (this may increase depending on intricacy and length – quotes available at time of order).

If you’re not brave enough yourself we can do commissions for any special occasion. You should however allow a 1-2 week period for this if possible. See the keepsakes and commissions section for more information about these services.

Booking is essential as we operate on a diary system and have limited availability.
