How much does Paint-Your-Own-Pottery at the Museum of Royal Worcester cost?

Pre-book for just £15 per table (groups of up to 6, 90 minute session), plus the cost of the pottery item you choose (prices from £9). We’ll then discount £5 off your total spend at the end of your session.

How long will I have to wait for my pot to be ready?

Once you’ve finished painting, we will take your item, glaze it and fire it in our kiln. Colours will become richer, and your item will have a hard shiny clear surface – which is food safe should you wish to use it once you take it home.

Please give us 7 – 10 days to glaze and fire, and we will then contact you to let you know your item is ready for collection. Pots can be posted to you if needed at an additional cost – please speak to a member of staff on the day if this is required.
