The Pottery Shed, Hinckley

The Pottery Shed Hinckley

Welcome to The Pottery Shed, a Paint Your Own Pottery Studio based in the center of Hinckley. 

We can fully open for sit-in painting, but it will be with a booking only system.  We are keeping our tables inside 2m apart and have additional screens.  Also, we have tables outside on good weather days. We also ask you to wear a mask whilst in the shop for everyone’s safety.

We only have 5 tables inside the shop and our booking system staggers arrival times so that we only have one group walking around the shop at a time.  

We have the following tables available for maximum 2-hour sessions:

  • One table to seat between 4-6 people
  • Two tables for up to 4 people
  • One table for 2 with one extra chair for someone to watch.
  • One table for 2 people 

 We ask you to limit one non-painter per table.  We can accommodate larger groups and move tables around to suit your group size.  Just book the number of tables you need for your group size or call us to discuss.

If you are still being cautious and don’t want to come to the shop we can do Take-Out Kits both for Pottery and Make a Bear for children and families to enjoy doing at home.

Paint at Home Pottery Kits: 

You’ll find out more details of our Pottery Kits for all the family to use on the “Paint Pottery” page. It will explain what, how, and where to get your pottery kit and what costs are involved.  These pottery kits will need to be returned for glazing and firing.  We have a huge range of pottery to choose from so all the family can get involved with this. You can view the price list and what we have available to paint on this page too.


Make a Bear & Painting Animal kits:

For information on  Take-Home Kits for Bear Making and Animal painting, you can find these on our  “Home Kits” page. You’ll also be able to book and pay for these by PayPal. The paints used in these kits are special acrylic paints, so they don’t need to be returned to us for glazing or firing and can only be used on decorative items such as animals or baubles and not dinnerware.  These make great birthday gift ideas or something to keep the children amused during lockdown.
