At The Hive we only charge a studio fee of £3.50 at peak times (Saturdays and school holidays) – if you wish to avoid this charge then visit during the school week when The Hive is quieter. Our studio fee covers your time in our shop, the glazing and firing service and for us to clean up after you! You only pay the studio fee once per person painting then you can choose as many pieces to paint, each item is priced individually.
We also offer a ‘Portable Pottery Party’ where you collect all the pottery and materials from The Hive, paint them at your party then return them to us to fire in our kiln.
