I didn't have food, just a coffee so can't really review the food. The morning was so lovely. I was gifted this by my son and I was quite nervous as an over 60's woman on my own, but I was treated so well by the very friendly staff who helped me along the way. It was also so lovely to see all the young mums and dads with their children and babies enjoying something creative. I was pretty impressed with what I managed to do considering I have very shaky hands!!

I visited for the first time today. I needed to entertain my 3 yr old alongside looking after my 4 month old on a cold wet day after a last minute cancellation of childcare. I found it online and decided to give it a go…I’ve never felt so looked after, my 3 year loved it and was so engaged for the afternoon, but just as importantly I felt looked after as an overwhelmed and exhausted mum. The place is full of fun creative activities, and nice snacks, but what makes it special are the people who work here. They understand how to help with the right balance of clear guidance required and look after you in a way that makes you feel relaxed.

I can not recommend this place enough. The atmosphere is amazing. The place itself has its own style that is beautiful to look at. My iced coffee was fantastic but what really makes this place is the staff. They where so helpful and accommodating. They couldn't do enough for us. Highly recommended

FAQs

Do I need to book?

Yes, it’ll guarantee you a table and the equipment, especially at busy times.

How long does it take to fire my item?

Your pottery has to be hand dipped, wiped and loaded into the kiln. The firing itself takes two days or more, and so you will be given a date when decorating for the collection of your finished item, normally around a week later.

During busy periods, the collection time will be 2 weeks as we have a lot of pottery to go through the kiln. Postage is available and calculated at the time of paying.

Can I have it back any quicker?

We’ll do our best, but it depends how much pottery there is going through the kiln and the time of the year. There is only so much room in the kilns as you can imagine. We can post pottery if you live further away, prices will be calculated at the time of paying.

Are the paints safe for children and babies?

All are paints are child safe, water based, non toxic under glazes and they wash out from clothes.

Will you contact me to tell me when I should collect my pottery ?

We do not contact you to tell you that your pottery is ready. It’s usually a week to collect , sometimes 2 weeks if we are very busy. At the point of sale, we will tell you when to collect. 

How long will you hold on to my pottery if I don’t collect on my collection date?

We will hold on to your pottery for one month after your collection date. Unfortunately, we haven’t got the space to store it any longer.

Can you post my pottery if needed?

Yes, we can post your pottery – there’s a postal fee for this.

If I don’t finish my pottery in my session , can I come back to finish it ?

Yes, you can come back and finish it, we charge a studio fee to return and finish.

Can I put my pottery in the dishwasher and microwave ?

We do not recommend you do this, they will last longer if you handwash only.

Do you do parties in the café ?

We now do parties in the cafe! We hold UV Parties every weekend so please fill our enquire form out to book. If you aren’t wanting a UV party, then you can book a large table in the cafe for a birthday gathering, however this is just a table booking.
