Paint your own ceramics

To explain how it works!

For Painting, we have a studio fee of £5 (Once off fee. Choose a second piece and you don’t pay another £5) which covers all the paints you use for your piece, stickers and stencils used, use of our brushes and the glazing and firing of your pieces. You then choose what you wish to paint from our large selection of bisque pieces (minimum spend £8 per person) and PAINT.

For Creating with Foam Clay, there is a £5 Foam Fee, plus the cost of the ceramic piece you choose to decorate. The foam fee is payable per piece. It’s as simple as that!! (For parties, please see our parties page)

Painting Ceramics

We have plenty of great samples to help inspire you, and our expert advice to get you on your way.

Ceramic Bisque Pieces

Pieces start from as little as £3 up to £30. With a selection of plates, mugs, vases, characters, animals, money boxes etc, there is plenty to choose from.

We now have a mini café for fabulous Speciality Coffees and Hot Chocolate, as well as a selection of muffins, cookie and other snacks. We offer complimentary juice for the kids but other canned drinks and water or flavoured water is available from the café.  YUMMY!

A painting session is 1hr 30 min. 

When your piece is completed, you leave it with us to glaze and fire it for you and collect it up to a week later. We will let you know when  it is ready. Foam Clay pieces you take home on the day.

To make it even more exciting visiting us at Paint You Own Ceramics with Calli’s Corner in Surrey, we are now also offering our amazing GLASS FUSION workshops and sessions (Suitable from 14 years and up) and Pottery Throwing Session (Suitable from 10 years and up). So now you can choose between painting ceramics, designing a special glass piece or throwing a pot or bowl on one of our two wheels. Please see out Glass Fusion and Pottery Throwing pages for more details.









We are so excited to finally be introducing our Pottery Throwing sessions.

2 hours of  fun learning to throw a pot, bowl or vase or even a part hand built and thrown plate and experience the wonderful world of throwing.

Our  throwing sessions are £50 per person, maximum of 2 people per session as we only have 2 wheels, for two hours. This includes your clay and firing of two finished pieces to bisque.

Once fired to bisque you will have the option of painting the pieces at home with one of  Paint @ Home Boxes and returning it to us for a glaze firing (£7 per 2 pieces) or you may wish to come in and paint your pieces in the studio with a £5 sitting fee plus the glaze fire fee.

Session Times:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays


Saturdays and Sundays  (Only available to those who have completed at least one supervised session) – these are unsupervised practice sessions only as Pottery Throwing is only perfected with practice, practice and more practice. (£35 per person for 2 hours, includes two blocks of clay and firing of the two pieces created. Extra clay available if needed, at additional cost, for the more experienced throwers). 

Saturdays- 10:30am-12:30pm

Sundays- 11am-1pm

Now that you know how it works, we look forward to welcoming you to Paint Your Own Ceramics with Calli’s Corner.
