Paint a Pot is based in the craft village at the heart of Markeaton Park, Derby.

We have a wide range of blank pottery shapes for you to decorate. Great for any age and you don’t need any great artistic talent.

Paint a Pot works in the following way: First, you choose a pot to paint from our selection, there is something for everyone, from a Teapot to a T Rex! Next, you decide whether you would like to take it home today, or leave it to be glazed and fired in our kiln (this takes between 3 to 8 days). We’ll help you get started, with brushes, stamps, sponges, idea books and lots of inspiration.

Paint a Pot You can also create a fantastic momento for keeping or giving, by painting your child’s hand and foot on a variety of items such as mugs (great for Dads!), and plates. Or have your babies’ hands and feet impressed in clay for that extra special keepsake.

Paint a Pot is great fun for kids, and relaxing for adults.

It may be worth checking out Paint a Pot's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.

We do strongly suggest you contact Paint a Pot before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.

Directions any top tips?

Although we use our party room for overflow during busy times, we recommend you book a table if you have a group of over 4. Don’t forget we are in a fabulous park with lots to do! Check out Markeaton Park under ‘The Great Outdoors’. And don’t forget your umbrella on rainy days as there is a 5 minute walk from the two car parks.
