Mini Potters

pottery clock with handprintsMini Potters is a paint-it-yourself pottery shed, where adults and kids can come down and create beautiful keepsakes or special gifts for any occasion – be it bespoke pottery pieces or clay imprints.

Staff are on hand to help capture little-one’s hand and footprints and we also offer hand painted writing and decorations for that personal touch.

We provide the pre-fired pottery, paint, and advice in a clean, cosy, and relaxing environment. Your creations are then dipped in glaze and fired in our kiln for a hard-wearing, professional finish.

It’s fun and it’s easy for both children and adults. Either pop in and see us, book an appointment and we’ll be happy to chat about what you’re looking to create. We’re also a great place for parties!

Box of clay and items to print withActivity Clay Packs

Mini Potters offer an ‘activity clay pack’ for those who have hired the barn at Windmill Hill City Farm and are looking for something for everyone to do! The pack includes, clay, rollers, boards, sponges and pottery tools. For printing in the clay we have cars, shells, pasta, buttons, cutters and building blocks. The packs can be pre-ordered for pick up on the day. They cost £5 per child and you just bring all the equipment back to us to clean. We are flexible and are always happy to discuss your requirements, so feel free to contact us.

Children playing with clay at party "The clay activity pack was a big hit with parents and kids at our sons 4th birthday party. It kept them busy for 30min which was perfect for our party. The kids could do anything they likes or just experiment with the accessories, such as dinosaurs or shells. I had so many comments about the unique pack and it was easy to collect from Mini Potters and they did the washing up! Definitely recommend:))" Sam MacPhail
