Can I collect my pottery from your Studio?
Yes, indeed you can collect from our Studio situated in Mid-Sussex, Haywards Heath. We are just a ten-minute drive from Burgess Hill and 20mins away from Crawley.
 
What do I need to be able to paint at home? 
Not very much to be honest! Besides the kit, you will need a bowl of water and a plate to put the paint onto. You may want some paper underneath you and some kitchen towel at the ready.

What if I make a mistake? 
Because the paint is water-based, you can literally wipe the paint away if you make a mistake. The best thing to use is either a wet, clean brush for small mistakes or a clean, damp washing up sponge. If you make a mistake with the darker colours, it is harder to wipe away completely and some of the paint be absorbed, just to warn you. So sticking with lighter colours is often better especially for baby prints.

What if I need some help?
We are still here for you! Give us a call to talk it through, drop us an email and there some videos on YouTube too with hints and tips.
