Paint Your Own Pottery Shop & Gift Vouchers

Our studio is open for pottery painting but booking is essential. We are observing the WG rules around social distancing, gatherings and face coverings. We have seen a huge impact on our small business already since reopening after Christmas with several last minute cancellations in the first week alone. With over 20,000 children currently missing school due to isolation, parents home ill from work and some just too nervous to venture out into hospitality we know that these cancellations are inevitable and will continue for the foreseeable future. The demand for Paint At Home Kits is therefore on the up.

Your paint pack is included with the price of your pottery. 7 colours are included: red, yellow, green, blue, purple, white & black along with a paintbrush. For projects which obviously require extra colours (e.g. brown for hedgehogs & ginger for gingerbread men) these colours will be added or supplemented depending on the other items you have chosen. If you would like to specify your own colours you can do this by emailing shop@lollipopsandladybirds.co.uk once your order is complete. We will be happy to sort this out for you. If we are unsure about the colours to include (it's difficult for larger projects such as our facet animals) we may need to call you to discuss before putting your pack together. We always include a pot of white and black paint as these are real staple colours. Use the white to mix lighter shades and black for darker and details such as eyes.

You can mix our pottery paints to create new colours so don't be afraid to experiment. For instance we don't include orange paint where you already have red and yellow. This maximises the colour pallet available to you.

We will make sure you have enough paint to cover the items purchased. Full instructions are provided with the kit. We highly recommend reading these before you start painting. Pots are resealable so close them up after use and you can go back and forth to your project, taking as much time as you like (one added benefit to doing this from home)

If you are able to venture out, we'd love it if you'd join us at the studio for painting. You can purchase discounted Christmas items here (they are no longer displayed at the studio) and the book a table to come and paint your items instead of having a Paint At Home Kit. All we ask is that if you wish to this, you must have been to see us for your studio session by 31st August 2022 at the latest. If you haven't been in by then, we will issue you with a Paint At Home Kit instead. Pottery needs to be returned to us for a professionally glazed and fired finish. If you order discounted seasonal pottery and would like it back in time for Christmas 2022 then we need it from you to fire by 31st October at the latest. Any pottery returned after this date will be fired after our busy Christmas period. See our home page for current studio opening times.

Throughout January we are offering a free personal delivery service to customers who live within 3 miles of our studio that cannot collect due to isolation. Outside the 3 mile radius there is a charge for postage. You will be asked for your preference on checkout.

Thank you so much for your support. It means the world to us x
