Can i bring my dog?

We are however we ask you mention this in your booking notes, and consider the space - we are a small and busy pottery studio so we hope you can judge how well suited your dog may be to this environment. On weekends or school holidays we are especially short on space so please bear this in mind.

 

Are there any nearby public transport links?

We are located just 30 yards (1 min walk) from Ansdell and Fairhaven train station which has great links to both Blackpool and Preston.  

 

How much does it cost?

Our pottery pieces are priced individually, meaning they vary due to size, detail, etc, but they range from £12 to £40. We charge a £3 per painter studio fee, which allows a 1.45 hour slot, unlimited paint colours, glazing and firing. This is charged on the day. Most of our range is between £18 and £24 which includes our mugs, bowls, plates and smaller ornaments.

When can i collect my pottery?

Your finished piece will be ready to collect from us 2-3 weeks after your visit (please note this may be extended over busier periods however you will be notified of this when you visit).  On payment, we will take some contact details and you will be contacted via text once ready. If for whatever reason you don't get notified after 3 weeks, please drop us a message here  including name/contact number that was left, description or photos of what was painted and date visited and we will check on this for you.

Do you have parking?

Unfortunately we don't have any on site parking. Street parking directly outside the shop front is limited to an hour however there is restriction free street parking a couple minutes walk away on Windsor Road and Kingsway. 

Are you wheelchair friendly?

Yes- we are on the ground floor which is level access to the street, up a very slight door step. We also have an accessible toilet. 

I forgot to collect my pottery! Do you still have it?

If it has exceeded the hold period as stated in your collection text- please drop us a message to let us know when you're able to come and collect. We hold on to your painted pottery as long as your studio space will allow however we do make quarterly charity donations for uncollected pieces so please do collect at your earliest convenience!

The glaze and firing process

We try our best to ensure that your time spent in our studio is both a therapeutic and fun experience. After you leave, the final part of the journey involves the glazing and firing of your pottery. Sadly this is not an exact science and the kiln is sometimes unpredictable. While we strive for perfection it doesn’t happen all the time, particularly as these are hand-produced crafts.
Various factors can sometimes effect the finished product. Please be aware that although we try to controlthese events it is not always possible. It can be the charm but also the frustration of working with ceramics. Sometimes, if we feel it is safe to do so, we will re-fire the pottery to try to fix glazing issues. In the unlikely event of your pottery breaking or cracking in the kiln we will of course offer compensation by way of a replacement voucher.
