Blue Owl

Pottery painting is a great fun activity for all the family. Why not sit and paint something for yourself or take time to browse the shop whilst the children are occupied.
We stock a wide variety of ready to paint pottery including plates, bowls, vases jugs, and mugs as well as ornaments such as money boxes, figurines and animals.
Once you have finished painting your piece we will glaze and fire it in our kiln ready for collection a few days later.
You can also have your babies hand or foot print put on a piece of pottery. These pieces are hugely popular as gifts for relatives or friends.
If you don't have time during our shop hours or just prefer to be creative at home then we offer a ;¢take away service;¢. You buy the pottery item to paint, and then take home a selection of paints, brushes etc When you have finished your piece you simply return it and we glaze and fire it ready for collection.
We can also host children's craft parties including pottery painting, decopatch, and jewellery making.
