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 walking around 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:
. 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.
We are continuing to do a check temperature check before you can enter. If anyone in your group has a high temperature, your group cannot enter.
We are continuing to do a number of Take-Out Kits both for Pottery and Make a Bear to keep children and families amused during Lockdown.
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.
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.
