Pottery Painting

How does it work?

It's pretty simple really. Visit the shop, call us or drop us a message via e-mail or Facebook to let us know when you would like to paint a pot, and to make sure that we have the design you want in stock. We can get you started straight away with the glazes, brushes, mixing palettes and also offer some tips on how to get the effects that you are looking for. At the moment we suggest that you paint your pot in the shop, but if there is sufficient demand we may start to offer kits so that you can paint at home.

You should allow between 2 and 3 hours for painting the glazes. You need 3 coats of glaze to ensure good colour and you need to allow time for the glaze to dry in between coats.  The drying takes around 10-15 minutes, so it is quite possible to do it all in one go.  Alternatively you might like to take a break and come back to it at a later date.  We are more than happy for you to make several visits.  The final stage of glazing is a dipping glaze, which ensures that all of the pot is waterproofed and enhances the colours.  We will normally help you with this stage.

We will fire your pot once you have completed applying the glazes, and your masterpiece will be available for collection around 2-3 days later. We will usually take a picture and add it to our customers' gallery.


Current designs

At the moment we have a limited number of designs in stock, but access to many more through our suppliers. Our intention is to find out what people would like to paint and then put in additional orders. We hope that our "starter for 10" will be fun and interesting enough to get you, and us, going.
