Visit our working studio at Chessell Pottery Barns where you can have a go at painting your own hand made English pottery. You don’t have to be an artist either, we have our own unique range of decorating sponges that are very easy to use and produce fantastic results - designs include a seaside range, dinosaurs, flowers, hearts, stars and farm animals to name a few! You’ll be amazed how professional your finished item looks. Once fired, items are usually ready to collect within the week, posted on to you (postage applies) or delivered free to our London studios.
