Colour My Pot
Get creative at Colour My Pot, a paint your own pottery place where you pick the pottery, paint it and collect it once it has been fired in the kiln.
Having been closed during the COVID-19 lockdown, the popular creative studio has reopened to groups of up to 10 painters from 10-2pm, Wed-Sun, as well as special 2.5 hour pottery classes (over a course of 5 weeks) hosted by ceramicist Carys Martin on either Sunday afternoons or Thursday evenings.
Located in the heart of Cleveland on Middle Street, Colour My Pot is a family-owned and operated business that caters to kids and adults alike. Inside the light-filled space furnished with little timber tables, artists of all ages can express their artistic side with an assortment of ceramics on hand to choose from and lots of painting techniques to try (just ask the friendly staff if you need some inspiration).
There are money banks, trinket boxes and cute figurines like monkeys, dolphins and flowers; while boys might like to paint a skateboard, skull or zombie. Grown-ups can get in on the fun too with plenty of pottery pieces for more mature artists - teapots, plates, cups, bowls and vases to name a few. Prices start at $6 plus studio fee of $9.
Mummy and Me sessions run during the week for mums and bubs, plus Colour My Pot runs adults-only night time pottery painting classes throughout the year. The studio is open daily during school holidays. Bookings are recommended.
Colour My Pot is perfect for children's birthday parties with everything provided except for food and drinks, with a dedicated party room that can accommodate up to 12 painters comfortably; while larger parties can book out the whole studio.
Nice to know - Keep the kids entertained at home with a Colour My Pot At Home pottery painting kit. Just order online and Colour My Pot will pre-pack your order ready for you to pick up in store, or for a small fee they can deliver within a 40km drive from Cleveland.
Each kit includes 2 pottery pieces, 3 paints, 2 brushes and a disposable pallet, with full instructions provided. Return your painted pottery to the store at your earliest convenience and they will fire the pieces, ready for collection one week later.
