Where?? can I do this…

Here at the Studio or, why not book us to come to your workplace, school, next group meeting, fayre, wedding…


How?? long does it take…

Well, that all depends on the age and attention span of the individual artist:

Toddlers typically experiment with colours & sponges for about 20minutes, they can enjoy using stamps and stencils with you too.

Older artists will spend more time on the details and features of their pottery piece, enjoy creating patterns and pictures using the different brushes, sponges, stamps, stencils and other decorating tools and techniques we are happy to demonstrate for you.

How?? do I get started…

Pop in & Paint any day during our opening hours, join in one of our events, bring friends or family for an art party, organise an office party or team-building event:
