Rain or shine, the opportunity to spend an hour or two sharing quality time with children, family or friends is wonderful. Add to that the creative fun involved in producing your own masterpiece and you have just the combination you would expect during a visit to this North Laine studio in Brighton.

Painting on pottery is suitable for all ages and abilities. You book in, turn up, choose a piece of pottery, make yourself at home, select your paints and brushes and away you go. There are books for inspiration, stencils, sponges and pictures to trace. And friendly staff on hand to help. You leave your finished item to be glazed and fired and then return a week later to collect or have it posted to you. For those in a hurry you can paint an ornament with acrylic and take it away the same day.

Perhaps you would like to make your own pottery? Taster throwing sessions run every weekend so you can recreate that classic ‘Ghost’ moment and make your own beautiful piece on the potters’ wheel. Evening classes give you the opportunity to expand this further, making larger items and getting even more stuck in!

So relax, get away from it all and head off to The Painting Pottery Cafe. You will leave wondering why you hadn’t thought of it before!
