How it works

At Calli’s Corner we offer Paint Your Own Ceramics, FOAM CLAY decorating on ceramic bisque, Make A Teddy (includes decorating a ceramic name badge and t Shirt for teddy and a special take home box) Glass Fusion, Glass Decorating and Sandblasting and Clay Workshops. 


Paint your own ceramics

To explain how it works, we have a studio fee of £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 piece. You then choose what you wish to paint from our large selection of bisque pieces. Prices are the same for using Foam Clay instead. 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 offer complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate, and juice for the kids. We also have a few snacks available and all we ask for these is a 50p donation for each, towards replenishing the stock. This can be placed in the butterfly money box (Beautifully painted by Calli) when grabbing your snack. YUMMY! (Only available at our Surrey Studio)

A painting session usually last between 1 to 2 hours, but can be longer if needs be, unless it is during our peak times, where you will need to hurry along as we limit the session to 2 hours.

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.
