Pots and Whatnots
Pots and Whatnots is a family friendly Paint your own Pottery Studio situated in Bishopthorpe, just outside of York City Centre.

We have a wide variety of pottery for you to paint and an extensive range of paints, brushes and tools to help you decorate your chosen piece. Help and advice is always on hand so don't hesitate to ask!
Once you've finished your work of art you simply leave it here to be glazed and fired in our kiln and then pop back in a week to collect your finished piece!
We also sell a number of beautiful Fair Trade items, along with a variety of Greeting Cards and our own hand painted pottery.

It may be worth checking out Pots and Whatnots'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 Pots and Whatnots 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.
