Hen, Sten, and Stag Parties
We'll provide a relaxed atmosphere to kick off your celebrations, catch up with friends and family, and share stories of the couple-to-be whilst you get crafty.
Pottery painting is a great way to create a souvenir of your pre-wedding weekend (that isn't an almighty hangover!) That said, it is BYOB, so feel free to bring a bottle of bubbly or two to help get the creativity flowing.
Just visiting? We can arrange delivery from just £2 per person.

Glazing and firing your painted pottery.
We try our best to ensure that the creative journey you take with us is fun and enjoyable. The final part of the journey involves the glazing and firing of your pottery. Sadly this is not an exact science and the kiln is sometimes unpredictable. While we strive for perfection it doesn’t happen all the time, particularly as these are hand-produced crafts.
Glaze spotting can occur as well as things like brick dust on the items. Please be aware that although we try to control for these events it is not always possible. It can be the charm but also the frustration of working with ceramics. Sometimes, if we feel it is safe to do so, we will re-fire the pottery to try to fix glazing issues. In the unlikely event of your pottery breaking or cracking in the kiln we will of course offer compensation by way of a replacement voucher.
Glazing and firing your thrown pots.
Please be aware that sometimes clay fired items can break or very occasionally even explode in the kiln. We try to control for these events but it is not always possible. It is the charm but also the frustration of working with ceramics.
