Attraction Information

Mad Hatters Pottery Painting Cafe is a unique ‘paint your own pottery', cafe for all ages.

It's only a £1.95 studio fee to use all the paints, brushes, stencils, writers, shaped sponges and aprons, then you just choose from hundreds of different pottery items.

With friendly, fun, studio assistants always on hand to guide and encourage, everyone can produce their own masterpiece, baby footprints included!

They can seat up to 60 people at once with party areas available for those special celebrations.

Choose your pottery ranging in price from just under £5 to £50 and decorate away. They then glaze and fire your treasures and you collect them 4+ days later.

Spend an hour or two relaxing with the family, have a bottomless pot of tea, a freshly ground flavoured latte and amazing fresh cake or snacks.

They also offer Prosecco and Pottery evenings for adults. Visit the website through the link provided for a full list.

They often cater for all types of corporate events and parties, hen parties, baby showers and even exclusive hire for the whole studio.

Here at Mad Hatters Pottery Painting Cafe they help with every aspect of your pottery painting experience and friendly staff always on hand to help. They do not charge in assisting with writing on your pottery or for ‘extra' time either.

They also undertake commissions for special occasions like Weddings, Christenings and Keepsakes. Why not join them to ‘Make a Memory', item that will capture a moment in time, forever.
