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.
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.
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.
Do you do the footprints on pottery for me, or do I have to do it?
We will be happy to help.
At what age can I get a good handprint?
We recommend footprints for children under a year and handprints from one year on. Small babies scrunch their hands up but you can always get a footprint that shows how tiny their feet and toes were.
Can I leave my children with you?
Although we love working with children and helping them do their best with their pottery, we aren’t qualified child minders with all the necessary checks for such a responsibility.
Can I mix the paint?
We don’t recommend mixing the glazes as we can’t guarantee how the colours will come out.
I don’t think I’m very artistic, could someone help me?
When the shop is busy, it’s difficult for us to spend extra time helping individual customers. We give everybody a full demonstration before they start. In quieter periods we may be able to give you some extra pointers to make it easier to get the effect you want!
The colours on my pottery don’t look as I expected them to, why is this?
With hand painted, hand-dipped pottery there may be slight colour variations on each piece of pottery.
There must be an adult in the party and disco room at all times if there are one or more children in there at any time.
Breakages or damage to the props or furnishings will have to paid for by the party hosts.
The party hosts are responsible for the behaviour of the children at their party.
Misuse of any of the art-ful equipment will have to be paid for.
Party Cancellations will not be entitled to a refund. Date changes will be considered if the request is made at least 14 days before the scheduled party date.
Pottery painted with anything other than the underglaze paints that we supply, may effect the glazed finish of your pottery. We will not fire your pottery if glitter has been added. Glazing and firing is done by hand. In the event of your pottery not coming out as planned, (our mistake), we will give you a gift voucher to the same value of your pottery. We do not give refunds.
Clay pieces are to be returned ASAP to art-ful once finished. Instructions need to be followed to ensure your clay survives the kiln. We cannot be held accountable for instructions not followed.
