Welcome to The Crockery Ltd


The Crockery is the fun place to come and get arty and relax with friends. We welcome children and adults of all ages and abilities to come and have fun in our big, bright and airy studio. We pride ourselves on being a welcoming ceramic cafe in the heart of the community, with friendly staff who have a wealth of ideas to help and advise you.

How it works

Choose a piece of ceramic crockery and paint it - what could be simpler?! You choose your piece from our extensive range of functional and decorative pieces and our friendly staff will explain how to get the best out of your painting. You have fun painting and we help and advise if you need us to. You leave your piece with us so we can glaze and fire it for you in our on-site kiln. You collect your finished piece after a few days and we see you smile.

What can you paint?

We have a huge range of ceramic bisqueware to choose from. Our range changes regularly and we make lots of the pieces ourselves on site. 

There's no need to book, unless you are a group of more than 6 or wish to have a party, so just come on down and fire your imagination.  

How much does it cost?

You pay a studio fee of £5 plus the cost of your chosen items. Item prices range from £3 to £30+

Your studio fee gives you unlimited use of all our paints and equipment and allows you to stay and paint for as long as you wish. Charging a studio fee makes it possible to keep the cost of the ceramic items down, and for people who want to paint lots of items in one session to be able to do so. If you love it and get hooked, like we know you will, ask about our membership schemes which mean you don't need to worry about studio fees when you come to paint.
