Can I book out the whole of the Museum studio for my party? When it is available, we can offer the Exhibition Hall for hire from £105+VAT or you can book our entire pottery studio space for £72+VAT, which means there will be no other tables painting at the same time as your guests, although there may still be Museum visitors walking through the studio space.

Please ask when making your booking.
Are there kitchen facilities at the Museum? Sadly we don’t have kitchen facilities to utilise at the Museum. All utensils required (cutlery, plates, cups, napkins etc) will need to be brought to the Museum by the party organiser and taken home afterwards. For hygiene reasons, food can not be served in the PYOP Studio. It can be served in the Exhibition Hall when available. We request that no nuts or nut based foods are brought to the Museum.

Our caterer can also provide party food packages (at an additional cost) which might save you the job – please ask when making your booking.
When will our party pottery be ready? Once you and your guests have finished painting, you will leave the item in our capable hands. We will glaze and fire them in our kiln. Colours will become richer, and your item will have a hard shiny clear surface – which is food safe.
We need 14 days to glaze and fire (this may be longer during busy periods), and will then contact you by phone to let you know your items are ready for collection. We can also charge postage to post items to one address only.
