Overview

We are just a short walk from the train Station, in the North Laine area of Brighton. We love to help individuals or groups spend an hour or two in our fun creative environment. You can choose from 100s of ceramic items to paint or try your hand at throwing a pot. Everyone, no matter their age or ability, enjoys their experience and has something handmade and unique to show for it. If you are not local then we can post your items or you can use acrylic paints for decorative pieces and take away the same day. We also hold exhibitions from local makers and artists. Booking advisable.

We really enjoyed your visit again this year. Your students are a pleasure to work with and we were all impressed with their skills. And it's a great opportunity for us to practice our spoken French. Merci Beaucoup!

A really therapeutic experience and good fun. £5 studio fee plus the price for the piece of crockery. Plenty of paints and materials. Will go again soon!

Many thanks for taking the time to review us. Really glad you enjoyed your visit. Maybe next time you might like to try your hand at throwing your own pot.
