How it works

Step 1 mug

Choose a piece of unfinished pottery from our wide range. We have both fun and functional pottery for a variety of tastes.

Step 2 mug

Use our wide variety of paints and tools to create your piece. Each customer receives personal attention so that everyone can make a work of art they are proud to take home.

Step 3 mug

Once you have finished painting your piece, we will coat it with a clear glaze and fire it in our studio, ready to collect in seven days.


There is a Studio Fee of £5.00 per painter. This fee covers the cost of paints, glazing and firing. You then just have to pay for the item(s) of pottery you choose to paint. The prices of pottery depend on what you choose to paint but we always aim to have a quality, affordable offering.

If you are looking for different ways to get together we can organise the perfect party and tailor it to your needs. From birthdays and baby showers to hen parties and work do’s we’re flexible enough to book evening events and we’ll always do our best to meet your requirements.

Really love Appletree Studio, I go here with my mum whenever I'm back home for a couple of days. Great coffee/tea/hot chocolate and lots of choice of pottery to paint, suitable for adults and children alike. Couldn't recommend it more. A great addition to Bishopsmead Parade!

You will certainly be made to feel very welcome here by Liz. Excellent hidden treasure. Lots of choice for children and adults to paint from character money boxes to serving platters and tea pots. On top of that they do a delicious hot chocolate and scrumptious selection of cakes to keep everyone happy whilst they create their masterpiece.

We did the pots and prosecco night, I highly recommend , great fun , lovely people and I am now hooked

I held my son's 7th birthday here this week. One of my fav parties! So relaxing, the kids loved it, lovely venue with amazing coffee & cake for the adults which is always a bonus!! I will definitely be back! Thanks Liz & Gill!
