"And the potter said to the kiln "BE WARE" and it was!" George E. Ohr

 

 

It's little wonder that when we first opened our studio, our name was Honey Pot Ceramics. When it comes to ceramics, there is so much to choose from.

 

First, there's the items themselves. Our products include:

 

- Centrepieces

- Cake stands

- Mugs

- Plates

- Piggy banks

- Teapots

- Bowls

- Novelty figures (including superheroes!)

- Animals

- Wine coolers

- Door plaques

 

If we don't have something you're looking for, we can order it for you.

 

Prices vary depending on what you decide to do. As a benchmark, plates cost between £12 - £22 depending on the size of the plate and what you would like to do.

 

Then, there's the choice of decoration. Ceramics can be patterned in three ways:

 

- Acrylics: By using acrylic colour, you can take your piece home with you immediately

 

- Underglaze: Pieces that are painted using underglaze have to be fired in our kiln, and will be ready for collection in 5-7 days

 

- Decopatch: Alternatively you can use decopatch papers to decorate your ceramic piece for something a little bit different.

 

Our staff can show you various techniques to create wonderful effects.

 

Adult Classes:

We also run adult evening classes where we take a more in-depth look at techniqie and show you how to create something really stunning. The studio also has a range of speciality glazes which give ceramics that extra special wow factor, including crackle glaze finishes and lustres.

 

Techiniques include tube lining, antiquing, bandblending, lustres, wax resist and drop colour as well as ways to hold your brushes and apply glazes.

 

Drop-in:

Whilst we recommend booking during hectic times such as school holidays, we invite our customers to drop in and have a go at whatever you fancy at any time you like. The studio is open seven days per week, 10am - 5pm.

 

Whether it's a special gift for someone, or a personal quest to try something news, then come and see us and be amazed at what you can do.

 

Pottery painting is one of our Children's party options.

 

If you haven't got the time to stay then we also take commissions to paint something special for you - just ask for details.

 

EVENTS

 

We can also come to you and provide arts and craft activities for children and adults - just ask for details. We've been to Edinburgh Zoo as part of their ZOO tots programme, Love Pet Show Scotland, The BIG Day Out, Edinburgh as well as softplay centres, nurseries and schools - anything is possible - just ask :)
