The Pottery Project in Berkhamsted is a great place to meet friends, bring the kids, or just indulge yourself in creativity.
We have an extensive selection of plain white pottery ready for you to decorate. Have fun with sponges and stamps and feel free to ask our staff for ideas or inspiration! We glaze and fire your piece which will be ready for collection a few days later. You can also try your hand at mosaics.
Parties, Groups & Workshops
Pottery painting parties are popular for all ages, whether young or just young at heart. We offer a range of party options for children and grown ups alike!
During school holidays we run themed children’s workshops involving a number of different crafty activities; come rain or shine there is something to keep the kids amused.
We take advance bookings for groups of 6 or more (when booking please remember to include both painters and non-painters so we can ensure we get everyone in your group seated), as well as those attending our workshops. Check our website for current offers and events.
Little ones don’t stay little for long! Why not create a lasting impression with some help from our friendly staff? Our washable, non toxic paints are ideal to use for prints on almost any of our pottery items (e.g. cups, plates, photo frames etc.). Finished pieces make unique personal gifts and are usually ready within a week.
Alternatively you might prefer our plaster outprints; we take an impression of your baby’s hand and or footprint which we set in high quality plaster. The result is an “outprint” which is fully dried before we decorate it to enhance the unique creases and wrinkles. We add a few words of your choice and the piece is presented in a simple wooden frame.
If you are visiting us with a baby and would like some help with prints we recommend you contact us to book in advance.
Baby change facility and high chairs available.
Painted pottery makes great personalised gifts! Ideal for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthdays, Leaving presents, Weddings, Anniversaries, Christenings, Christmas and more!
