Pottery Painting: a fab Holiday Play Date activity:

Children of any age can enjoy a creative catch up, entertaining themselves as they paint their project, while their parents natter over a cuppa - and enjoy it while it’s hot, for more than 4 minutes! without feeling guilty about the state of the house or not doing the washing... because they’re not there!

And, of course, we do the clearing up.

Bring friends, family, schoolmates…

Invite them all and Let’s Party!  Don’t worry, we clear up.

Full details here: Birthdays & Parties

Hand-painted with Love by the Children

Melt the hearts of Grandparents and Godparents with Christmas gifts painted by the children. You can’t go wrong with our Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and even Teachers gift ideas.

We’re on standby with ideas, tips, tools and techniques to help the children create their masterpieces. Did I mention, we’ll clear up…

School Visits & Community Groups

Does your child’s Nursery, Play Group or School know about us?

Come to the Studio or we can visit your venue with curriculum-based, festival/celebration gift focussed, or FUNdraising, Hands-on, practical activities.

Uniformed Groups & Leaders

Rainbows, Cubs, Brownies, Scouts: a change of venue for your weekly meeting at  the Studio, or we can come to you!

Whether it’s Fundraising, earning a creative badge or gift ideas, we’ve got it covered!

Teens 13-15yrs are welcome to paint without their parents, as long as we have contact details of the responsible adult who will be dropping them off/collecting them/paying the bill - you know how it goes.

Teens 16yrs & up are welcome to book and visit under their own steam.
