How does it work?

The first thing to do is choose what you'd like to paint. There are lots of different pieces to choose from - mugs, plates, bowls, etc. You start off with the blank ceramic item (also known as "bisque") and use the special underglaze paints to put your own individual design onto it. Your decorated bisque is then left at the Studio where I will put a clear overglaze on it and fire it in the kiln. When it's ready, the piece is yours to take home.

 

Is there a theme to your party?

Paint a Princess crown, a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a butterfly or a piece of cake! Speak to me in advance about the available options.

 

And of course, there are always various "special" days of the year to consider - Easter, Christmas, Mothers Day, Halloween, Fathers Day ...

 

Something Bigger?

At various times throughout the year, you will be able to pre-book 6 consecutive sessions where you can take your time over a slightly bigger project. Whether it's decorating your own dinner service or designing your own bathroom tiles - give yourself that bit longer to create something really special!

 

How much does it cost?

There is a Studio fee of £5 per painter. You then pay for the items that you paint. There are lots to choose from. Feel free to contact me if there are specific pieces that you'd like more information on.

 

For parties at your own venue:

Up to 10 painters = £5.00 per person

More than 10 painters = £2.50 per person

 

Pre-booked 6 sessions = £2.50 per session
