Children’s Birthday Parties
Children’s birthday parties start at a fixed price of £14 per head, which includes the child studio fee and allows the choice of a mug, plate or bowl to paint. This option gives the children an opportunity to decorate a piece of pottery they can use every day. The alternative is to pay a £4 studio fee per head and to let the children choose from the shelves, perhaps within a certain price range – for example up to £15. You are more than welcome to bring food, but please be aware that kitchen space is limited.
We suggest you allow 1 – 1½ hours for painting, depending on age and size of party. If you are going to have food as well, then 2 hours is sufficient time. Please advice your party guests to bring a piece of picture or pattern that they want to paint on the pottery so they will have an idea of what to start with. If they want to draw their design on the pottery first, they will need to bring a felt-tip colouring pen to the party.
There is no minimum number (maximum is 20, although the optimum number is around 12-14) and we recommend an age group of 5+.
We have stencils, stamps and sponges and our friendly staff are on hand to offer advice and help. All items are ready to collect within a week and will be wrapped, labelled and ready to hand out. If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Painting pottery is a great idea for a hen party. It is not only fun and relaxing, but also a great creative activity for such an occasion, at the same time providing the hens and the bride-to-be with a wonderful memento of the hen day/weekend. You don’t have to be particularly artistic, as we have plenty of creative tools and ideas to help you create a masterpiece. The capacity in the studio is a maximum of 22.
We suggest you allow a couple of hours to paint and you are welcome to bring any bubbly, wine, cakes etc, and tea, coffee and soft drinks are available in the studio. The pottery is then glazed and fired, and will be ready to collect a week later or, if you are not local, we can post it to you or you can arrange for a courier to collect it.
Groups, Office Parties and Corporate Events
Book a painting session at crockadoodledo for a creative and relaxing team building activity. Get a group of friends or colleagues together and let your hair down over some pottery painting. We are happy to accommodate groups (minimum number is 10, or the studio fee equivalent) in the evening for a two hour session.
