Ages: all ages

Venue type: Indoor

The Ceramic Experience is a pleasingly welcoming paint-your-own pottery studio, with soft play and cafe designed to keep families comfortable and creative!

Select your chosen piece of unpainted pottery, decide on your design and get cracking - oops, well, maybe not cracking! But let your inner artist out, and if they don't want to emerge then use the inspirational staff and resources to encourage them!

They supply everything from the stamps to the stencils, plus aprons and brushes, tiles and paint, all of which are happily non-toxic and food safe.

There are loads of items to select from, from the functional to the sublimely ornamental, so they really do have something for everyone. The friendly and experienced staff will help you as much as you require, and can offer you ideas and encouragement throughout.

The indoor play element is small but perfectly formed and offers classic physical soft play elements to enjoy some stretching of muscles before (or after! Or both!) focusing on the fine details. Loads of fun for all ages!
