Paint-your-own Pottery
Time for Tea, Kenilworth

We're delighted to be able to offer you a fantastic venue to Paint-your-own-Pottery at ~ head on over for pottery painting, delicious cakes and treats and a friendly welcome!


Who can paint?

Everyone is welcome! You'll find pottery options suitable for all ages from children to teens and adults. Bring the children for a spot of crafty fun on a rainy weekend or catch up with friends over coffee and pottery!

No previous experience is needed and pottery painting is a wonderfully relaxing way to spend time. An information sheet will be available with tips and advice.

All the glazes used are non-toxic and food safe. This means that your mugs, plates and bowls are all safe to eat and drink from once glazed and fired.


We advise against using a dishwasher to clean and handprinted pottery is not suitable for use in the microwave.

How does it work?


​There's no need to book ahead to paint-your-own pottery at Time for Tea; just pop down, choose your pottery and paint! However, if you would prefer, table bookings can be made by contacting Time for Tea. Availability can be limited during busy times, so booking may give you peace of mind. 

Choose your pottery from the selection in the cafe. There will be a range of our most popular pottery as well as a seasonal selection which will change throughout the year.

The Time for Tea staff will get you started and be there to answer general queries you may have. There is a small 'Painter's Fee' of £1.50 per painter ~ paid directly to Time for Tea.

Drinks, cake and food is all available whilst you paint.


(N.B tables available for 1.5 hours only during busy times)


When will my pottery be ready​?

Once you've finished painting, just leave your pottery with the team at Time for Tea. We will thecollect it for glazing and firing at our studio.

The process of glazing and firing in our busy studio means that we aim for a TWO WEEK turnaround on your pottery. As soon as it is wrapped and ready for you, we will get in touch and arrange collection from our Kenilworth studio.

We are unfortunately unable to post pottery or guarantee an earlier collection.

(N.B your pottery will be kept for 3 months after your painting date)
