Imprint pottery without the stress
Our little people service is a great opportunity to capture the beautiful memories of your little one’s hands and feet, and on occasion their little bottom, on a piece of ceramic pottery. We help by eliminating the stress and chaos of attempting to do it yourself, and do it all for you.
Book a time slot that suits you and bring your ‘Little Person’ along for a fun experience of getting those tiny hands and feet imprinted onto ceramic mugs, plates, baubles and many more bisque pieces for you to take home and cherish forever.
If you would like something even more adorable, we can transform the imprints into beautiful characters, be it a butterfly, a dinosaur or a gorgeous unicorn. We can help you make the perfect choice.More About Our Little People Service
