Not painted pottery before? We are always happy to show you how to get the best from our paints & decorating tools. Even the self diagnosed "Not Arty" will make something fabulous with us. Using sponges, stamps, stencils and design sheets you do not have to draw or even use a brush to be creative! We have a reputation for 'teaching' our customers in an easy & friendly manner how to learn how to do our range of crafts and advance their skills.
The Pottery painting activity is ideal for all ages with tableware items to ornaments & money boxes available to choose from.
Our special enameling copper activity allows you to create jewellery, notebook covers and 3D canvas collages. It is ideal for 8 years old upwards but younger can still do this with Adult assistance and of course Adults love this activity too. Once your creation is complete you take it straight home.
In addition to our craft activities we have Foam clay decoration- this can be enjoyed by all ages and taken home with you on the day. It is a type of air drying clay which you use to decorate ornamental pottery or wooden items
The average cost of these crafts is £6.75-£15pp depending on your choice of item(s) to decorate.(£6.75 is if you did one item of copper enameling)
Our Clay sessions are great fun also, allowing you to create your own work of art from scratch. This activity must be booked in advance. All items are hand built using firing clay. We can guide you through the basic hand build techniques then get creating.
For the very young we have our special monthly Mini Potter's activity session giving them some special time to be creative. We do craft and pottery painting in the session. Ideal for ages 1 year to 4 years old. They are welcome any time during the day too outside of this event.
We provide a wide selection of arty birthday party packages for Children and Adults. These can also be offered to Schools and Groups either at Fired 4 U or at your own venue.
Take a look at our bi-monthly Adults evening for a change from your normal routine activities.
We love special occasions at Fired 4 U and can run Hen parties for you, paint up gifts for you for special occasions and even capture the tiny hands and feet of babies and your pet paw prints in painted form or clay imprints.

During your visit with us we can make you a freshly brewed filter coffee, pots of tea and soft drinks to keep your creativity flowing along with a few muffins.
It is not always necessary to reserve a table for your pottery painting, although on a wet day and in school holidays it can be advisable. If you would like to book ahead just call us, even on the morning and we will advise on available times. Our telephone number is 01772 203060.
If you are traveling a distance too us it may be worth noting you can take foam clay and copper enamel creations home with you and pottery painted items need to be glazed and fired so are ready for collection the same day the following week
"Just to say thanks for your help at our marathon visit today. Georgia really enjoyed being able to take something home with her but liked the painting of pots also. She was "well impressed" (her words) that you remembered her name - always a sign of a good host. I was pleased to see you were busy - long may it continue! Can see a return visit being planned in the diary soon. Sue."
