Welcome to Paint a Pot, Derby

Paint a pot is based in the craft village at the heart of Markeaton Park, Derby’s Premier Park.

We offer a fun and relaxing place for people of all ages to come and create something that is uniquely yours – whether it be a day out or holiday souvenir, a gift for someone, or simply just a couple of hours of relaxation doing something creative on your own or with family and friends.

We have a large selection of ceramics to choose from, a good range of vibrant colours, stamps, sponges, books and examples to gain inspiration. Either paint and take home the same day using acrylics and glitter paint but this won’t be shiny or waterproof.

Or leave it be glazed and fired in our kiln ready to collect between 3 and 8 days.

There is a massive choice for children boys and girls; with everything from princess to dragons; penguins to cats; unicorns to sharks. If you want something a little more practical there are plates, mugs and jugs; bowls, frames, plant pots, vases etc.

And don’t think it’s just for kids! Us grown-ups get to have some fun too!

There is something hypnotically therapeutic about the process of pottery which is why even people who are not artistically inclined are drawn to it.

Just drop in – no need to book. But give us a call if a large group or party so we're prepared.

We do not charge a studio fee – the price is the piece and includes all paints, glazing and firing and includes free writing (the hardest bit).
