We also have small cafe which serves light refreshments for you to enjoy while you paint. These include hot and cold drinks, crisps, tray bakes, cookies and flapjacks.  Special dietary requirement? We offer diary alternatives in our drinks and Gluten Free or Vegan* snack options (*subject to availability).  If you have a specific intolerance please feel free to let us know prior to your visit, but we are a small cafe who may not be able to cater to every dietary need.  We know that in your two hour session you may want to enjoy a snack, but without sufficient prior notice we cannot guarantee we will have something to cater for everyone. If your allergy is severe and you feel a small snack is necessary then we are happy for you to bring what you need - but we do not allow full meals/sandwiches in the studio for anyone. We have sessions available throughout the day - if you choose our 11-1pm or 12.30-2.30pm sessions please be aware that we do not serve lunchtime food and do not allow outside food on the premises, we would suggest you select a morning or late afternoon session to cater for your requirements. 


We are proud to get great feedback and reviews from our customers, our aim is to give our guests a relaxing creative studio experience, while helping to make memorable ceramic pieces to keep, or share with family/friends. But don't worry, if the studio environment is not for you, we also offer Paint at Home kits for collection from the studio by pre-arrangement. Fancy something a bit more hands on? We also run clay & ceramic workshops for adults & children - see our upcoming workshops something which might take your fancy.  Drop-ins and bookings are both welcome, but keep in mind that Saturdays and school holidays are busy, so we advise booking ahead to make sure you don't miss out

To make a booking we will need the time/date you want to visit, the total number of visitors, your phone number and email address to add your visit to our online system.  Remember, Pots & Paint is a busy working studio and someone may not be able to answer you straight away, so please allow at least 24 hours before contacting us again (unless urgent), as we may have to wait until the studio is closed to get back to you. 


We limit sessions to two-hours at busy times such as Saturdays and holidays.
