Attraction Information

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.
