What we do

Great Daddy daughter time
— We came to Brighton on an overnight stay for my husbands birthday, the weather was artic cold so knew we would need an indoor activity, so our daughter with the help of her Dad done him a new mug, it's a fabulous little cafe, all the staff are so friendly and polite and the range of items you can choose to paint is extensive. We had lovely Lattes whilst they painted and the mug is being posted to us once it's ready. We had a lovely couple of hours in this beautiful,cosy little cafe and most importantly our 3 year old simply loved it xx Kirsty G - TripAdvisor


Creative delight
— Had a brilliant time here while on a day trip to Brighton on Saturday. We were amazed by the range of ages and visitors, from 6+ months to 80yrs, all ages welcome. A great place for an alternative group activity with friends. Fantastic value for money, at £5 pp studio fee, which covers your paints, tools, glaze and kiln use + whatever the cost of the item you choose to paint. My friend and I had a great time here, and can't recommend it enough. A great activity for all ages. Don't worry if you don't live in the area, because the lovely people there offer postage.
