A warm welcome awaits you at our Paint Your Own studio, whether you just want to look around at our finished items for sale, have a light refreshment or choose a piece of pottery to paint yourself.
As well as everyday items such as plates, mugs, etc. we have a vast variety of pottery that’s forever changing. We produce some of our own bisque that allows us to keep our prices reasonable with no extra fees.
At Hands2gether we want you to enjoy your time with us – you have a choice of beautiful colours to paint your own designs – we use glazes that are water-based and non-toxic. Sponges, stamps and other decorating aids are also available. You can draw your design with felt tips or trace something special on to your piece using special carbon, just ask for details.
When you have finished your work of art you leave it with us to be clear glazed and fired in the kiln. We will contact you when your piece is ready for collection this usually takes 5 to 7 days.
All bisque is subject to availability and we can’t guarantee to have the same stock on your next visit. We are more than willing to keep piece back or if it’s from one of our own mould stock, make one for your next visit. Please let us know.
Payment is taken when you have finished and you can pay with cash, cheque or card (minimum spend for card payment is £10). No payment on collection is allowed.
Your pottery is safe to use for food, however we advise not putting it in the microwave and to hand wash it.
Sleeveless aprons are available for children and plastic for the adults if required.
Please note: unseen problems can occur on rare occasions with the bisque or during the firing process in the kiln. Should your piece be spoilt in this way you can complete another piece at no charge. This does not apply to the glaze work – you should always follow the guidelines of applying three coats of each colour used on your piece.
