STUDIO POTTERY PAINTING

At The Yard Pottery Painting Co. We Provide a Family Friendly Space where All Ages & Levels are Welcome

Book your table with us through our website for pottery painting in the studio. We charge a £15 deposit to secure your table which is redeemable against your final spent on the day. Our sessions are 1.5 hours long and we use the initial 15 minutes to seat you, let your choose your pottery off the shelves and explain the underglazes and painting process to you. 

Pick from over 100 different pottery pieces and enjoy some painting therapy using our wide variety of coloured glazes. Our pottery prices range from £4 - £45 depending on the size, detail and shape of the piece. We charge a studio fee of £3 per person attending the booking and we do not charge by session, you pay for what you paint.

We glaze and fire our pottery on site and have an average turnaround of one week, if you need it a little quicker just ask and we will try to accommodate you where we can. Once your piece is fired, it is a food safe ceramic and will be a treasured keepsake for years to come. If you are visiting the area on holiday and are unable to collect your finished pieces, we offer a popular postage service.

There is plenty of inspiration around the studio and we also have books to help bring out your inner artist and creativity.

While painting with us in the studio you can do children's hand and foot prints onto a piece of pottery with our non-toxic, water based 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 a commission piece, we love creating something unique and special.

We hold workshops and pottery painting evenings. Join us to learn new techniques and skills, meet new people in a relaxed and creative environment and try something new.

OUR MISSION

Looking After Our Children's Future

At The Yard we aim to use ethical and fair trade suppliers for our snack bar and gift shop because we know that honesty, fairness and kindess help make the world a better place and creates equal opportunities.


Because looking after our planet is important to us, we are always improving on ways to produce less waste and recycle or up-cycle where possible. We use 100% renewable electricity and we sell certified sustainable and organic Neal's Yard Remedies products.

We recycle as much cardboard and packaging from deliveries as possible by re-using it to wrap and package pottery going off to its new home with you. 

So you can rest easy knowing we have done the hard work for you.
