From the storeroom you can peek into the large factory floor—we found it pretty interesting and the kind staff opened the door for us to take a better look.

A selection of colours are available and you are able to choose six to create your masterpiece, but it was pointed out that the colours change considerably once fired. Samples of the fired glazes will help you visualise the end result. Participants are given a quick introduction on how to use the paints and there are all sorts of stencils, sponges and different sized paintbrushes to use. While staff will assist you with paint preparation and they’ll do the cleaning up, you really do need to supervise your own children during the actual session itself—especially younger children.
