We have a large selection of ceramics, vibrant paint colours and all the tools you need to help you create your own unique work of art.

Once finished your item will then be ready to collect in 1 week after it has been glazed and fired. If you are visiting York we can post your item to you or we can hold it for as long as you need until you can collect. Alternatively you are welcome to paint in our range of fun, bright acrylics and take your item away the same day.
