Pottery painting printed design plates!

As well as all our usual fantastic range of pottery items to choose from, this half term we are introducing our printed design plates!

To get things started, we’ve gone for a fabulous Rainbow Unicorn design and a Dragon and Knight design!

Booking for any activity during half term is recommended and if you’re interested in painting the new printed design plates please let us know when you make your booking!
