Pottering About is a home based creation studio.  You can come to us and take part in a variety of fun creative activies.  Paint your own pottery allows you to decorate a ceramic item that gets fired and will last forever.

There is also our paper mache decoupage, and you’ll have a smashing time making a mosaic! For special groups and workshops we also offer t-shirt painting and tie-dye.

We have a large range of pottery to paint from mugs, plates, bowls, vases, figurines suitable for all ages and abilities. You will find over 50+ different colours to choose from, plus oodles of tips and hints to turn your blank piece into a amazing work of art!

Birthday Parties

You can come to us or we can come to you! Our space though not big has everything you need to have an amazingly creative and fun party. Suitable for ages 5 and upwards, you’re welcome to bring your own food and refreshments, we just ask for a small cake tidying fee.
