Frequently Asked Questions

What do we do?

We facilitate you having a splendid time painting 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?

Pottery pieces can take up to two weeks to glaze and fire. Items moulded in clay can take up to four weeks glaze and fire. You will receive a text when your pieces are ready to collect from our Canton studio. If you have not received a text within the above time period then please contact us on 07701 053 540 *. 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.

How long have I got to collect my pieces?

We have limited storage space so any pieces which remain uncollected after one month may be disposed of. If for any reason you are unable to collect within this timescale please contact PeggysPots

Where are we based?

We are based at the Boneyard, a popular shipping container village 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?

The Boneyard has basic toilet facilities although unfortunately these do not have wheelchair access or a baby changing table.

Is the space accessible?

Although containers are limited in size we can provide ramps for access to our studio. During the summer and warm days many customers prefer to paint outside.

How long do activities take?

Basic pottery painting sessions and Kids Pottery Parties are one-and-a-half hours. Hen Parties, Clay Events , Kids Clay Parties and BYOB events take longer and details of these times can be found on the relevant pages. To avoid overruns we suggest arriving 10 minutes early to choose your pieces and ensure you maximise the time for painting / Clay making. Each group is different and we try our best to adapt to everybody’s needs where possible.

How do I book?

You can book here or if you need help please contact PeggysPots on 07701 053 540.


We don’t provide food but we’re happy for you to bring food with you. There is also an onsite street food business TwentySix Cardiff which many people enjoy.

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.
