Attraction Information

The Painted Pot Paint Your Own Ceramic Studio Cafe

The Painted Pot offers fun activities such as pottery painting, foam clay, build a bear, decopatch, t-shirt and bag designing, sand art, toddler art, children's birthday parties, workshops, hen parties and adult evenings.

We runchildren's holiday clubs throughout the year which incorporate arts and crafts for little ones.

We specialise in capturing little foot and hand prints of your babies as a unique memory. We create perfect replicas of your baby's hands and feet, capturing each fold of skin, tiny lines, shape and size. Items are ceramic prints, clay imprints and 3D baby casting. These are very popular ways of creating a keepsake or gift for a family member, all unique and personalised.

Looking for something fun and different for achild's birthday party? At The Painted Pot we provide great party packages to choose from where your child can set their imagination free! At our venue we can host a party for up to 36 children or we can even host a party at your home or venue with the Mobile Painted Pot service.

At our cafe we offer a wide range of high quality tea, coffee as well as specialty hot drinks and delicious homemade cakes. Kids can enjoy blended to order healthy fruit or vegetable smoothies as well as milkshakes to keep them fuelled during their arty session!

Fantastic place for kids 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic staff and a great selection of items to paint and lots of other fun things to do, like foam clay (which is good if you have a child who likes sensory items to do), t-shirt painting (ware old clothes to do this) sand pictures and build a bear. We have three children, One who has adhd and speach difficulties who is not the quietest, but every time we have gone here they have always welcomed us so much and always have time for the children. They are always happy to help if your unsure of what to and offer helpful suggestions. This is a brilliant but often missed place which is definitely a gem of barnet. Also makes a great cup of tea and coffee
