getting creative by painting pretty pots

Posted on August 18, 2011 by

Looking for a rainy day activity for the summer holidays? Well, pottery painting might well be your answer!

You can find them in BrightonBristolEdinburghLondonManchester, Winchester and all over the country. Pottery cafes and studios are great for getting kids, and adults, in a creative mood. Let your little ones choose what they would like to paint – whether it’s a plate, a tile, an egg cup or a piggy bank – and get painting. Depending on the size of the item you will easily while away a few hours choosing colours, deciding on designs or simply using little fingers to make hand print patterns. And they are stocked with enough coffee and cake to keep big and little artists happy! Once your item is fired, usually a few days later, you’ll be able to collect it and use it forever.
