What is a Ceramic Painting studio?

Ceramic painting is all about having fun! We carry a wide range of ‘bisqueware’ (unpainted pottery), together with brushes and under-glaze paint for you to decorate and personalise your very own masterpiece. We then glaze and fire your item in a kiln, ready for you to collect in 1 week! All we ask is that you have fun!

How much does it cost?

The cost depends on the item you choose to paint with prices starting at £6.00. There is also a studio fee of £4.00 per painter which covers your session in the studio, paints, tools, brushes, stencils, glazing & firing of however many pieces you decide to paint.

How long does it take?

On average about one and a half to two hours but it can take longer. Younger children tend to take less time than older ones. You are welcome to stay as long as you like.

What if I don’t finish my piece?

You can pay for your item, then leave it with us and come back and finish it another day. There will be an additional studio fee to pay on your return.

Why is there a Studio Fee?

The studio fee covers your time in the studio, paints, tools, brushes, stencils, glazing & firing of however many pieces you decide to paint. We do not give you a time limit so you may stay as long as you like.

When will my item be ready?

It takes around a week to glaze and fire your pieces. If you are in a rush then please ask and we will try to turn your item around earlier.

But what if I’m not very artistic?

Don’t worry you don’t need to be Van Gogh! We have stencils, stamps and design books full of ideas and inspiration.


Do I need to book?

We only take bookings for party packages or large groups of 6+ otherwise please just pop along. Anytime we happen to be full, we would always take your mobile number and call you as soon as a table is free, so don’t worry, it won’t take long to be seated.

Are the paints safe and washable?

Definitely, all the paints are washable and we use non-toxic paints and glaze. We also provide aprons.

Can you use the items in the dishwasher and microwave?

No. Due to our bisque being earthenware we do not recommend using your item in a dishwasher or microwave.

Do you sell gift vouchers?

Yes we sell £5, £10 & £20 gift vouchers.

Do you sell drinks and snacks?

Yes, we offer an excellent range of hot and cold drinks plus a small selection of snacks.

How do I find you?

We are really easy to find, just a 2 minute walk from York Minster. There is also a pay and display car park behind the studio. Please click here for a map and directions.

Do you do commissions?

Yes. Click here for more details.

Do you post?

Yes all items are extremely well packaged for safe delivery. It is very rare for an item to be broken in transit but should this happen we will offer a replacement or full refund of the amount paid.
