Paint Your Own Pottery & Craft Studio in Rainham, Kent

Welcome to Forrester's pottery painting studio. Painting your own pottery 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 pottery pieces, canvas or paper mache as well as offer an arts and craft session on a Friday (9.30-5pm term time only).  During this arts and crafts session, there will be different activities on offer each week including 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 bring your little ones along to our arts and crafts sessions on a Friday @ £4.50 per child.  This entitles the participant to take part in all of the activities on offer (pottery, canvas and paper mache products not included in this price) which vary but include playdough, gluing and sticking, drawing/colouring in, sand play and something to make such as a butterfly, mobile or photo frame.

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

Our relaxed and friendly studio is located at the rear of our discount shop which is in Rainham Shopping Centre.
