Frequently Asked Questions
If you are visiting during the week there is no need to book unless you are a large group. We would strongly advise booking a table if you are visiting during peeks times such as school holidays or the weekend. Bookings can be made over the phone during opening hours. Please note that clay / out print castings and silver fingerprint jewellery impression taking are by appointment only.
The cost will depend on the pottery item you choose. We have over 250 different items that change with the seasons ie. Easter themed pots, Christmas decorations. The prices start from £6 upwards which includes glazing and firing. We do not have a studio fee. We do not have a price list due to our continuous changing of stock but to give you an idea, mugs and plates start from £12 upwards.
Your pottery will be ready for collection seven days after painting. At the end of your session, you will be issued a collection receipt that you will need to bring with you. We will NOT call you to let it know that it is ready. Please collect your pots within 30 days of painting. If it is not collected, we will make attempts to contact you. We are unable to store pots more than six weeks old due to limited space in the studio.
All the paints and glazes we use in the studio are non toxic. They are water based so fully washable if they make contact with skin and clothes. Our paints are perfectly safe for use with baby hand / footprints.
You can contact us via phone, email or messenger on Face Book. Please note that enquires can only be answered during opening hours. If you are planning to visit that day, then please call directly. During busy periods we may not get the opportunity to check social media for messages so please call… we will always hear the phone ringing!
All of our items are microwave and dishwasher safe but we do recommend for longevity of your item that this is avoided and items are hand washed. Pottery is not oven safe. We advise the use of LED tea lights in the pottery and not a naked flame.
We do not allow food or drinks purchased elsewhere into the studio. Greasy fingerprints onto pottery will stain or leave unsightly marks. We serve a full list of drinks including Lavazza Italian fresh bean coffees, Teapigs teas, Cadburys hot chocolate, healthy smoothies and indulgent milkshakes made to order. We also have a lovely selection of cakes and snacks if needed.
We give each booking a studio time of two hours for their table during busy times. At quieter times you are welcome to stay longer. We also have a “working progress” shelf for those who need a couple of sittings for large projects.
If your child is aged 8 years or over and booked into one of our school holiday workshops, you can leave them for the session. All other painting session will require an adult to supervise all children less than 12 yearsold.
Yes we are! We have baby changing facilities and high chairs available.
There is a pay and display car park directly behind the studio which is accessed via Croft Avenue and it’s free on Sundays! There are also a couple of spaces outside the studio for a quick stop off if you are just popping in to collect.
