How it works
Choose from over 100 different pieces of bisque, ranging from teabag dishes, money boxes, mugs, plates, jugs and figurines. We charge a £5 studio fee per painter – this charge covers the paint, glaze, firing and 2 hours of studio time.
Bisque prices start from just £6.00 and a studio fee of £5.00 per painter is charged to cover paint, glaze and firing. A complimentary hot drink is included.
Time to get creative! We have everything you need to create your masterpiece: inspiration books, stencils, sponges, brushes and more. Our under-glaze paints are child safe, water based, non-toxic and easy to use.
We clear glaze and fire your pottery in our on-site kiln. Once fired, we’ll contact you when your masterpiece is ready for collection, usually within 5 days. Tableware is suitable for everyday use and is food and dishwasher safe.
What people say
Collected our pots yesterday and we are so pleased with them, they are better than we could ever have expected. The whole experience was wonderful from start to finish. So kind, so generous and such a good price, too. Thank you.
We’ve just had a fabulous 7th birthday party here, it was perfect. Thank you for looking after us and making sure everything ran smoothly. 100% recommended for children and adults alike. Brilliant. 5* review on Facebook.
My daughter often goes with her Great Nan. They have a wonderful time painting together. Nan has moderate dementia and the staff are amazing. Always making both the elderly and the young feel welcome and going the extra mile. What a lovely happy place. Highly recommend x 5* review on Facebook.
I took a group of friends including children at the weekend, and we had a great time! Very impressed by the choice of things to paint and inspiring ideas within the shop. The staff were excellent with the children too. We all thoroughly enjoyed the session and were delighted with the finished items. Can’t wait to come back.
We went to Happy Glaze this afternoon and had a lovely time, such a fab little place and nothing is too much trouble. Lovely atmosphere, will definitely be going back without my child as well as with her. Thank you very much for a lovely afternoon.
What a lovely place, took my two boys 8 & 6 here today and had a great time. They really enjoyed it and I also had a go myself. The staff were friendly and when the boys had finished gave them colouring to do whilst I finished up. Can’t wait to collect our pieces next week. Definitely up for the adults session!! 5* Review on Facebook.
My two children and I popped in to Happy Ceramics today, we were greeted by a lovely smile and taken to our designated table. My son finished his piece a bit quicker then us but Angie was on hand to keep him busy (whilst also handling other customers), she had colouring pages and scratch cards that helped buy us time to finish our pieces. Thank you so much ☺️ Amazing creative studio, i would highly recommend a visit (or two)!
So happy that Epsom finally has a ceramics place and not only that, one with modern ideas and super friendly and helpful owners. I visited last week to paint a couple of mugs and I was really impressed with the choice of things to paint and also the inspiration and ideas. (Especially the watermelon mug and the geometric designs) I also had a one year old in tow and the guys kept her entertained whilst I finished my masterpiece – which made my life SO much easier. I love love loved it. Can’t wait to go back. 5* Review on Facebook.
