In the heart of Knaresborough, a stones throw from castle, you can find Painting Pots Knaresborough, a ceramic and craft studio! Here you can find pottery painting, Foam Clay modelling and Teddy Mountain bear making, as well as a huge range of craft workshops and special events that take place throughout the year. We are also the home of The Great Knaresborough Bunny Hunt!
Painting Pots offers a wide selection of bisque wear to paint including plates, mugs, vases, cookie jars, money boxes, keepsake decorations and special seasonal pieces, amongst the many quality designs. Prices start from just £4 and includes glazing and firing.
How does painting pots work?
🎨 Choose a piece of pottery from our range of pieces to paint and decide if you’d like to use paint or Foam Clay.
🎨 Staff will seat you and go through what to do, the tools and techniques we have on offer and how to use them to get the best results.
🎨 Leave your creations with us – then come and pick up your items from the studio, glazed and fired around a week later. Postage can be organised at an extra cost which is perfect if you are a visitor to our beautiful town of Knaresborough.
There are many different tools and techniques available to try out and staff are always on hand to offer advice and assistance with anything you need. We try not to put time limits on tables and positively encourage taking your time and enjoying the creative process! We love to help you create something as wonderful and unique as you are.
We are positively child-friendly and all our paints are water-based and non-toxic. With 3 floors in the studio there is plenty of space for all painters and crafters.
