About Us

Hello! And a very big welcome to Pottering Around.

We are a ceramics studio based in Hillsborough, Sheffield, where you can come along and paint your own pot in a relaxing environment.

The pots range from £5 up to £35 with around 150 items to choose from.  Around 40% of our items are made on the premises!

There is no studio fee or painting fee, so the price you see on the shelf is the price you pay.


The process

  • Phone, email or send a message via Facebook to book a table. Please tell us how many people there will be (including non-painters so we can ensure you all have a seat), giving a date, time and contact number. I strongly advise to book in school holidays and weekends as it can get very busy although I will always try to accommodate you if you have not booked.
  • Come along and choose what you would paint and take your seat.
  • A member of staff will explain what to do and will be around throughout your visit to help and advise you if required.
  • Paint!
  • Leave the pot with us for 7 days to dry, be glazed and fired in our kiln.
  • Collect your masterpiece.
