Frequently Asked Questions

What do we do?

We facilitate you having a splendid time painting bisque pottery pieces, moulding clay pieces, or pot-throwing on the wheel. We take away whatever you make, glaze and fire it in our kiln and give it back to you as a finished and usable object. It’s that simple!
We take groups and individuals of all ages and help them make something beautiful at their setting or ours. If you have any questions please contact us on [email protected].

What is the best age range for Peggy’s Pots?

Any age! This is the perfect family activity, it’s great for kids’ parties and it’s perfect for grown-up gatherings too! We also have many retired clients who regularly order our takeaway kits and find painting pottery at home a wonderful retirement activity. Anyone of any age and any ability will love the Peggy’s Pots experience.

Do we do hand and footprints?

Absolutely we do! Please see our hand and footprints page for all the details.

When and how do I pick up my finished pieces?

All your pieces will be glazed and fired and ready to pick up at our Canton studio after a week* for painted pottery or three weeks if you have moulded something in clay. If you are travelling from further afield please talk to us about posting your finished projects to you (this will, of course, incur an extra postage fee).

* Subject to studio opening hours.

Where are we based?

We have a container studio at the Boneyard, which is located at the bottom of Paper Mill Road in Canton. We can be accessed by Cowbridge Road or over the footbridge via Sanitorium Road/Broad Street. Whether you are coming on foot, in a car or on public transport, we’re easily locatable.

Is there parking?

There is on-street parking in the lead up to the Boneyard on Paper Mill Road.

Are there any toilet facilities?

Yes, the Boneyard has toilet facilities.

How long do activities take?

We book one-and-a-half hours for each session, but we’re pretty flexible, things may take a lot less time or might even run over. Each child/adult/group is different and we try our best to adapt to everybody’s needs.

How do I book?

Please fill out a booking form, email us on [email protected] or you can contact us via our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Food

We don’t provide food but we’re happy for you to bring food with you, we often get customers who order and enjoy takeaway pizzas from Dusty Knuckle Pizza which is next to us at the Boneyard. Word of warning though, it can get a bit messy!

Safety of the products

All the products we use are child-friendly, non-toxic and washable, having said that, don’t wear your Sunday best! Pottery painting and clay work can be a messy business so it’s probably not a good idea to wear your finest attire.
