For all parties we require a £30 deposit to secure your booking, which is deducted from your final bill on the day.


Evening Activities

Adult Painting Nights –these will run from 6:30 to 8:30pm, to secure your place you just need to pay a £5 deposit which is deducted off the cost of the item you paint in the evening. For dates see our Events section of our facebook page.

Adult Evening Parties – the studio can be hired for an evening for adults to come along and paint and item without being interrupted by children.  You are welcome to bring drinks and snacks.  Our café will be open for drinks and cakes to purchase during the party  We can accommodate parties from 5 – 30.  We can also recommend a caterer should you wish to have food during the evening.  These parties can be for fun, a birthday party, hen night or for any other reason.

Groups & Associations – we can accommodate you during an evening for your groups to enjoy the fun of painting an item in our studio one evening.  Minimum number of people is 10 and maximum is 30!  You can paint an item in our glaze paints to put in the kiln or use the acrylic paints which they can take home that night

We can also accommodate some groups during the daytime but we would have to limit these numbers for 15 per session and would be bookable in advance and would be in our dedicated meeting/party room. 

We can even arrange to come and visit your group during your normal meeting time – please call us for further information if this is of interest.

Fundraising events – we can offer these during the week day evenings.  If you have something in mind please call us to discuss details and we will see what we can do to assist you.


Clay Imprints – a double print is £30 per clay with a hanger supplied (this includes painting and firing), or £15 if you are looking for a single print only; these take two weeks until they are ready and are fully produced in-house.  

We use fresh clay which needs to dry slowly to ensure it doesn’t crack which is why it takes 2 weeks.  They are painted up to your choice of colour and writing.  We can do one foot and one hand, two feet or two hands – whichever you prefer. 

We can also do larger clays for families but please remember the more clay the longer drying takes – costs for these depend on number of prints please call or email for prices. 

We can also do doggy prints – as all our staff are dog fans – but we ask if these can be booked in advance by calling the studio.


This is great for Hen Parties, Engagement Parties, Weddings, Christenings, Retirements, Birthdays, Leaving Do’s and is a fab way to produce something unique – the guests sign the plate in pencil, we allow space for a drawing! 

Bring it back with any artwork required and we can go over the signatures and do the artwork for an additional commission fee – the fee is dependent on the amount of work required and an idea of cost will be given to you when you return the plate. 

You can purchase any items that suits your needs – be it a plate, vase, flower pot, picture frame.
