Our Art and Pottery Cafe
Book a family table or a space to get creative and enjoy some time out. stART studio provides a beautiful place for people to get creative, have fun and explore art in a friendly, community space. Fun for the whole family or to work on a personal project such as a gift for someone special. No artistic talent required guidance and inspiration provided to ensure you get the most of your time at stART studio.
During our art café, you will still be able to have your cake and art it with our special studio afternoon tea from the wonderful Mad Hatters Tea shop. Book a table below (afternoon teas will require 24 hours notice).
Our studio offers a wide range of art making and all resources are delivered to your table and cleaned before and after use for you to enjoy and experiment with. We have a range of media and techniques to test and hone your skills from painting to decoupage, drawing to printing. There is no right or wrong at the studio, all the work displayed on our gallery walls is either from visitors to the classes, our open studio café or from professional local artists.
We have redefined pottery at the studio too. No kiln required; pottery made simple. Not only do we believe this is a small but great way to conserve the planet we also love the vibrant end results! Using acrylics instead of glazes on our pottery pieces you can make personalised keepsakes for loved ones, all that’s needed is a slick of waterproof varnish to seal and they are ready to go and use! If sculpting and getting your hands dirty is more your thing then our carefully selected, quality air dry clay is for you. It just needs 24 hours to dry, a quick sand to smooth and a varnish or acrylic to seal. Shaping a big lump of wet clay into something useful or decorative for the home is indescribably therapeutic.
If you can’t get to our classes or you enjoy working from home then we have created a range of different art kits to take away and get you hooked. Perfect for zoom party nights or gifts. All the resources we use in the studio can be purchased at our studio shop and we have a beautiful selection of cards, prints and original pieces of art to buy from local artists Caroline Hyde-Brown, James Allen, Bella Bigsby and Astra Taylor-Todd. Our zoom classes will also be continuing over the next few months which can be booked on our book a class page.
