Florence and Milly supplies everything that you the "artist" needs:
You can just drop in but if possible please book as it will guarantee you a table especially at the busy times.
Yes all our paints are non toxic, child safe and water based under glazes, so they also wash out from clothes.
We offer parent and baby sessions dedicated to this but there may be a wait if its busy. All other times we will be happy to help but if the studio is busy, it can be tricky for us to spend extra time helping individual customers with their pottery. It costs €5 for our help & commission painting.
Not for pottery painting. If you want to work on your own creative artwork or materials it is €5 studio fee for 2 hrs.
Not unless they are booked in for Camps or classes. We love working with children and helping them get creative. We are Garda vetted and have completed child protection training.
Yes, if you have something in mind we can make it (it is best if you have a photo or picture of what you want painted to prevent confusion), or you can choose from our gallery show pieces. Prices for this varies as it depends largely on the details. You can email us with your query via our contact page.
Unfortunately the failure rate in this handmade process is about 3%, so if your pottery has not come out as well as we had hoped please accept our apologies. We would like for you to re-paint your item free of charge on another visit to the Studio.
When the studios are busy, it can be tricky for us to spend extra time helping individual customers with their pottery.We have stamps, stencils, tools for pattern building and we can also show you how to do some fun stuff like bubbling and sponging. There are loads of painted pieces as examples around the studio to help provide some inspirations.
Due to the nature of your hand painted, hand-dipped pottery means there may be slight colour variations on each item.
Handmade pottery items are food safe once glazed and fired by us, however we cannot recommend they are used in the oven/microwave/dishwasher due to the delicate nature of the pottery.
Some of our customers have frequently used their items in ovens, dishwashers and microwaves. If you make the decision to use your item in a domestic appliance, then we recommend that extra care is taken.
Here are some things to remember:
