The Clay Studio is a contemporary pottery painting studio.

This is ideal for all the family to enjoy quality time together in a relaxing and inspirational environment. There are loads of items to choose from to work with an a nigh endless way of decorating them, so the sky's the limit! Plus you can try their new bubble clay - a wonderful sculpting medium with a fantastically unique finish - to create colourful pieces that don't require firing so you can take them home with you the same day! The special bubble clay comes in lots of bright colours and is ideal for ornaments, photo frames, trinket boxes and other decorative projects, but not crockery etc.

There is no need to book except when bringing a large group. The Clay Studio is family friendly and offers something for everyone. Every Tuesday is Mother and Baby Day although mums and babies are welcome every day.

You can also get in on some cool extra events ranged throughout the year, such as Christmas Pottery Camps and Painting Academy Workshops! The Clay Studio is a fully licensed cafe with a range of snacks and light lunches sourced, wherever possible, from local suppliers.

It may be worth checking out The Clay Studio'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 The Clay Studio 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.
