Ceramic cafe

Welcome to Forrester's ceramic painting studio and cafe in Rainham, Kent. Painting your own ceramic is a great way to relax, unwind, have fun and explore your creative side - all at the same time! Whether you're a toddler or a great grandparent or somewhere in between, there's something for everyone at Forrester's.

Don't worry if you've never painted before - our friendly experienced staff will give you all the help you need to create your own ceramic masterpiece!

There's no need to make a booking (unless you are a group of 8 or more), except at weekends and during school holidays.

We offer paint your own ceramic pieces, canvas, paper mache and Decopatch as well as offer an arts and craft/messy play session on a Friday (10am-12noon term time only).  During this arts and crafts session, there will be different activities on offer each week such as gluing and sticking, painting, sand play, playdough, drawing and an activity to produce an item to take home such as a photo frame or mobile.

We offer an informal studio for all ages, where you can come along on your own to relax and unwind, or with a group of family/friends, to paint a ceramic pottery piece of your choice.  We have a wide variety of items to choose from, including mermaids, tiles, clocks, farm animals and dragons to name but a few.  Also on offer, is a selection of paper mache and canvas products for you to decorate with paints or coloured papers.

Why not book your little ones onto our arts and crafts sessions on a Friday @ £4.50 per child for one hour (10-11am or 11-12noon). smiley

We serve hot and cold drinks and a selection of snacks in our cafe to keep hunger at bay while you create your masterpiece!
