Time to get creative at The Bridge with our Paint Your Own Pottery studio!
During The Bridge opening hours, our studio is available to anyone who wants to indulge their artistic streak and create colourful pieces to take home or give as a gift.
We have pieces ready to paint including:
- Egg boxes
For a quirky touch why not try painting mermaid plaques, money boxes and jester picture frames!
There is a choice of ceramic paints which need glazing and firing, or to take your piece home sooner, acrylic paint. We only fire our kiln when it is full so there may be a short wait before you can take your piece home. Tea light and candle holders and anything that will carry or contain food will need to be glazed and fired.
How does it work?
Step 1. Choose a piece of pottery
Step 2. Create your design – we have design books and staff to help
Step 3. Select your glazes, brushes, sponges or stencils
Step 4. Paint
If you’ve used ceramic paint, leave your creation with us and we will have it fired and ready for collection within 7 to 10 days.
If you have a bespoke piece in mind, our pottery workshop tutor and his talented students are happy to bring your idea to life so you can then paint it in our studio.

Paint Your Own parties are perfect for children and adults alike. We can create a bespoke party package to meet your needs. If you’d like to know more about holding your party with us get in touch.
