Attraction Information

The Pottery Loft in Billingham is a family friendly pottery painting and arts and crafts studio. With lots of activities for all the family to enjoy together, they offer the perfect venue to spend quality time.

Their creative activities are fun, educational, therapeutic, confidence-giving and very rewarding which is why customers keep coming back to enjoy all that they offer.

In addition to the pottery painting, baby prints, personalised gifts, decopatch and teddy bear making activities that are always available during normal opening hours, (with no need to book), we also provide workshops, craft clubs and special events throughout the year (with do require booking).

They also provide lots of pre-school activities including arts and craft sessions, special offers for pottery painting, music sessions and much more: contact them for more details. The lovely clean and bright small soft play is great for little ones to enjoy in between their artistic endeavours and perfect for waiting for older siblings to finish their masterpieces in peace (strictly age 4 and under).

The Pottery Loft specialises in children's parties where the venue is booked out exclusively for each individual party making the party extra special. Their parties are great for children of all ages. The birthday girl or boy gets a fabulous personalised keepsake of their special day (usually a handprint plate or tile featuring the fingerprints and signatures of all of the guests).

Perfect for a lovely time with kids 5 out of 5 stars

We live very locally and go several times a week for both the messy makers and music bugs sessions. The staff are always so helpful and polite and we love the soft play. The food is fab with the tuna toastie being a personal favourite. Would definitely reccomend.


Awful experience 1 out of 5 stars

What is described as a child friendly place to take the kids turned out to be a horrendous experience. The staff were not helpful at all with the kids and had an awful attitude. I went home feeling disappointed and upset at the service given to me by the staff. Latte machine did not work either and the coffee tasted like something that had been extracted from the river tees. Would I go again? Yes, if I was having a really bad day with my little one and sent it there as punishment. Best thing about the place is the stairs that lead you to the exit.


Excellent 5 out of 5 stars

I visited here today for the first time with my little one. Reasonable prices, lovely staff and made us feel welcome. little one loved every minute of it. we will definitely be back again.


Regular Customer because it's the best! 5 out of 5 stars

We love The Pottery Loft! The nicest barista coffee and fantastic cake selection. The menu has something for everyone. Activities-wise, there's so much to choose from! We've done pottery painting many times, and stuffed bears. Decopatch is fun to do with the kids together and we've had a go at the new foam clay which was great to take home on the day. We have a set out outprints for our 3 kids framed and pride of place in our living room and they're the best money we've ever spent! Plus 3D casts for our youngest. We've attended many of the sessions (ours love the slime workshops!) and birthday parties here and love every single visit. The staff are really friendly and always learn and remember the kids names, making them feel special on every visit. Can't recommend enough!


Love it here!! 5 out of 5 stars

We have visited many times and love it here! We’ve got older kids and younger ones and there really is something for everyone here! Gorgeous pots to paint, which are great for personal gifts and keepsakes as well as just good fun! Lovely soft play for littler ones too. As well as all this you can get a lovely cuppa and cake. And the jackets and toasties are pretty yummy! Staff are warm and welcoming and really make a wonderful effort with the kids which is so nice. Can’t recommend it here enough!!
