We have a small number of parking spaces available outside the front of the studio we like to keep free for our disabled customers and parents with young children and babies.

We also have free parking down the road at our sister shop “On The Common” and also at The Viceroy. Both are just a couple of minutes walk up the road, which is paved and flat. Please feel free to drop guests off and then park if easier. Where possible we do advise sharing lifts if coming in a group or even better, get dropped off and then you can relax and enjoy yourself!

How much does it cost?

The price really depends person to person.

Everyone who paints will pay a £5.00 studio charge, plus the price of the piece of pottery you decide to paint. Our pottery starts from £4.95 all the way up to £40.95.

For example our mugs cost £14.95, plus the studio charge of £5.00.


Our sessions run for two hours, 9:30am-11:30am, 11:45am-1:45pm and 2:00pm-4:00pm. We are back to back so unfortunately are unable to seat you early or have your session run later.

We find that 2 hours is plenty of time to pick and paint your pieces but anything not finished, you’re welcome to book in another session to finish your piece a different day!


Yes, its very important that you book in so we can make sure there is enough tables available for you and your group.

We also need at least a weeks notice on any afternoon tea bookings!
