Emily's Paint A Pot is a ceramic painting studio that welcomes children to come and explore their creativity. They have a huge range of ceramics to paint, from traditional mugs, plates, cups and saucers, right through to animals, planes and princesses

As well as painting, children can also use decopatch – where pieces of colourful paper are used to decorate the piece – or foam clay, which is the bobbly playdough-like material which sticks to anything with no mess! 

For older children who like to try something different, they also offer mosaic decorating, where they can decorate a photo frame or a coaster with the brightly coloured tiles. 

All ages are encouraged to join in and they host regular read-and-paint sessions, where babies and toddlers listen to a story and then paint the main character… or do a handprint on a cup if they are too small to master a brush!  

If you would like to create a timeless keepsake they also offer clay imprints, outprints and 3D castings so you can treasure those tiny hands and feet forever. 

Many customers become regulars and the regulars are rewarded. Every customer is given a loyalty card and each visit earns a stamp with the 5th visit being free! 

You can also check out the party room in which they host children's parties and other events including Santa parties and Halloween parties. 

Whilst you are painting you can enjoy a hot or cold drink from the extensive drinks menu, a healthy snack or maybe even a treat from the sweet shop. The milkshakes are very popular with the children!
