We now have a 22 seater Coffee Shop which is open seven days a week and offers paint your own pottery, decopatch and seasonal crafts. We still have our Party room studio behind the post office and use this for parties, certain crafts and events. If collecting crafts which have been done please see the staff in the post office shop who will be happy to help you.
In our paint your own pottery studio we offer over 300 craft items to do. We have paint your own pottery which can be painted in acrylics if you want to take home the same day, or use the pottery paints and then we will glaze and fire your items to make them shiny and food safe. This takes seven to ten day normally but could be less.
We are open for walk in's as well as parties and groups. We welcome everyone if you want to just paint a small gift, have help with hand and footprints or book the whole studio. If the post office is open then so are we.
We have a range of party or group options shown on the other page but groups and parties can choose from any of the items in our studio. Our studio is a paint your own pottery studio but for groups or parties booked in, a member of staff will be on hand to help and give advice.
We find children under the age of five tend to take around an hour to paint an item and eat food. Over fives normally take a little longer so all groups and parties are always given a 1.5 hour slot. We won't ever rush you out and if there is another group or party booked in after you, we will let you know. All we ask is that all bookings finish before our closing times.
We do take bookings for evenings with a minimum of 15 painters.
Food can be provided. We find the most popular option is the bizzy bags and cost £3 per person. This includes a sandwich of their choice, plain crisps, a chocolate bar or fruit and either a carton of drink, simply fruity bottle or a bottle of water.
You can however bring your own food in (if your party is in the party room and for a minimu. Of 12 people) all we ask is that you take the rubbish away with you. Staff will do your crafts with the children, clear the tables and then leave you to serve and clear away your own food.
Our only rules are:
Parents are responsible for their children and any breakages
During opening hours minimum of 6 people for a party
The garden area can be used but is not ours so we have no responsibility for children using this area
For parties we ask that no more than six parents stay as other wise we can't get around to help the painters
