Paint your own

Due to our pending move our paint your own café is closed until further notice.

Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook for updates about our re-opening in the near future.

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:

  • Plates
  • Platter
  • Mugs
  • Bowls
  • Egg boxes

For a quirky touch why not try painting unicorns, money boxes and gnomes!

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.

Bespoke pieces

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

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.


Prices for Paint Your Own Pottery include all glazes and firing and start from £0.35p
