Love doing arts and crafts with your kids? Head to The Painting Pottery Yard, no matter the weather, and enjoy a relaxing pottery painting session for the whole family. And when we say “for the whole family” we mean it - even pets are welcome! 

Fancy changing things up with another craft activity? Check out the studio’s workshops - from foam clay modelling and decoupage, to making cupcakes and chocolate bouquets, there’s something for everyone. Anyone’s welcome to try, whatever their age or experience!

We know kids grow up too fast but you can celebrate this awesome time in their lives with baby hand and foot prints. It’s a memory you can keep forever! Also, The Painting Pottery Yard offers drinks and snacks, so you won’t have to worry about your little artists going hungry.
