Attraction Information

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.
