Our cheapest item is £4 and our most expensive item is £30, with most items costing between £9 and £17. There is NO studio fee to pay, the price you see on the item is the price you pay inclusive of all paint, firing and studio time. We therefore have a piece of pottery to suit every budget.

We do not recommend these things as they can place stress on your item and cause the glaze to crack or ‘craze’. Crazing is a spider web pattern of cracks penetrating the glaze. These cracks can allow water, dirt and bacteria into the cracks

Our underglaze paint is water based and does not stain your skin or clothing. They are also food safe. Our acrylic paint may stain and is not food safe. We will provide you with aprons for your painting session to protect your clothes. However, please do not wear your ‘Sunday Best’ for painting.
