Painting your own Pottery

Pottery painting can be a lot of fun and is also a very relaxing and mindful activity to do, young or old.  We have a range of pottery, beautiful colours, tips, tools and experience to share with you. The Smithy is in a rural setting at Capesthorne Estate Yard, Macclesfield. It's easily accessible by car and there are no parking fees - just country air and possibly a little mud.

The range of pottery that you can paint includes Mugs, Plates, Bowls, Vases, Plant Pots, Pen Pots, Decorations and other functional or decorative pieces with prices starting as little as £5. We even make our own pottery for you to paint - if you fancy painting a Bollington Bear or something a little different from the norm, we can do this.

Each session is 1 1/2 hours / 90mins - the studio fee of £3 per person goes towards the costs of running the studio.

We love helping total beginners find the joy in pottery painting. There is no judgement here and I promise you I can help you create something you'll feel proud to take home. Choose between Tuesdays and Thursdays, our adults evening or book in to have your little ones footprints captured. Pottery will be glazed and fired ready for collection within 2 weeks.

We can be completely mobile...

Whether you'd like us to come to your home to capture new baby footprints, or entertain for children's parties - we can come to you.

Pottery painting hen parties, special occasions, birthday parties or corporate events - we can help. Just get in touch to discuss.
