Visiting the studio
Book Your Spot
During this summer we are operating a slightly different studio environment. In order to manage the safety of our guests and staff, you must book an appointment. We will be open Mon - Sat and have two sessions to choose from 10am-12pm or 2pm - 4pm.
Pick Your Pottery
Please take a look at our online shop to browse our selection of pottery. If you can, let us know before you arrive what you'd like to paint so we can have it ready on your table. We offer pieces to suit all ages, abilities and pockets, from animal figurines and money boxes to vases, cereal bowls, mugs and much, much more and in addition to our core range we offer seasonal pieces so there’s always something new to paint no matter how often you visit.
We’re Here To Help
Once you’re settled in a member of the Pottle team will briefly talk you through the process of painting your piece and the new safety guidelines. Whether you’re a total beginner or a bit of a pottery expert we’re on hand throughout your visit to help you realise your design, talk technique and troubleshoot too. In addition to our basic range of coloured glazes, brushes and sponges, we offer a selection of specialist glazes and tools to help you create unique, beautiful designs.
Relax And Create!
Creativity shouldn’t be stressful so we’ve done everything we can to make your visit to us as relaxing as possible. We usually have a range of teas and cafetiere coffees available to order and enjoy as you paint, books and jigsaws to keep speedy little painters entertained while parents finish up and toilet and changing facilities just upstairs. However, during the summer our toilets will remain open but please follow our hygiene rules and we will be inviting you to bring your own refreshments.
When you’ve completed your masterpiece we’ll take it backstage to dip glaze and fire in our on-site kiln. The whole process takes a week or two (at very busy times it may be just a little longer but we’ll always let you know if there’s likely to be a delay). Along with payment for your pieces we’ll take a phone number so we can text or call you when your finished Pottle is ready for collection.
