You can print hand or foot prints with any of our non-toxic paints, make an extra special Mother's or Father's Day gift, decorate your own Christmas Bauble or paint yourself a unique Jug. The possibilities are endless.

You can have your pottery piece personalised professionally by our in house artist with names and messages. Or ask us about or commission pieces if your looking for a special gift.

Join us on one of our workshops to learn new techniques and skills, meet new people and try something new.

Once your piece is finished it is then glazed and fired for a professional, food safe, keepsake which can be treasured for years to come.
