What’s On at HaaHoos?

Takeaway kits – Let HaaHoos help you get Crafty in your Crib!

We all know that creativity not only relieves boredom but the sense of achievement and calmness it generates is therapeutic and good for the soul.
Whilst we are unable to confirm when we will fully reopen the studio, we are able to bring a range of our arty activities to you. We are delivering:

Pottery Painting Boxes

Each box contains everything you need to create your masterpieces – paints, instructions, brushes, pallettes and a colour chart.

There is a £10 charge for hiring the takeaway box for 2 weeks. You will need to collect it from our studio (please note our new opening hours), and this charge includes the firing of your painted pottery pieces. Alternatively we can arrange delivery to you (and collection) of your takeaway box, within 10 miles of Twyford for an additional £10.

There is also a £10 deposit for the box which is refunded once everything is returned to us, and your pieces are ready for collection.

The pottery items you choose to paint are charged on top.

Keep the box for two weeks and paint as many items as you like. 1 Pottery Painting Box easily provides enough paint and equipment to paint 8 – 10 medium sized pieces.

See the range and prices of pottery items available here.

Email us your order (info@haahoosceramics.co.uk) and we will contact you to arrange payment and delivery.

Foam Clay Kits

Foam Clay is a fabulously neon coloured sculpting putty that can be moulded, shaped and manipulated to cover our ornamental pottery pieces in amazing designs. It is air drying, so no need to return any items or equipment to us once you’re done.

Foam Clay colours are £1.25 per tub, or 5 tubs for £5 (colours available: red, yellow, blue, light green, dark green, pink, orange, light purple, dark purple, brown, silver, gold, black and white)

Pottery pieces are charged individually on top. See the range of pottery items suitable for foam clay decoration here.

Closing for 2 days for exciting refurbishment work

We are having some exciting refurbishment work done in the studio so that we can bring some really exciting new changes to what we offer to you at HaaHoos.

So the shop will be closed for 2 days whilst this work is carried out on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th September. Whilst the builders are here, our staff will not be in, so we won’t be able to offer even collections during this time.

We hope to keep disruption to a minimum but please bear with us if the shop is a little untidy in the few days after the refurbishment!

The work we’re having done will mean we can offer you some exciting new food and drink options whilst you are spending time with us pottery painting and socialising with your friends and family

We’ll be having a fantastic launch party at the beginning of October so keep your eyes peeled for news of that coming soon!
