Local Mum, Laura Turner, has just opened Puffin Pottery in Otley and she invited us down to see what they have on offer! This is our honest review of what we believe is a great addition to Otley!
Puffin pottery is a large, bright & airy studio with plenty of tables and aprons available for your budding artists! With high-chairs and baby changing facilities, milkshakes, tea, coffee and a selection of lovely cakes you can sit back and relax whilst your little (or big!) ones paint their pots. With lots of designs ranging from Unicorns and Mermaids to Fighter Jets and Piggy banks, there is something to tempt every child!
Once you are seated a member of staff will come over and talk your child through what they need to do, from wiping the pottery down with a wet sponge to selecting their colours and how many coats of paint each colour requires. My Mini-Mumbler especially loved the crackle colours which appear sparkly once fired!
The tables are set up with a paint carousel in the centre and a paint colour chart tile to ensure your child selects the right colour for their pottery. With brushes of every size and specially shaped sponges for stamping even the littlest of children can enjoy this activity!
Once the masterpiece is completed they will be fired in the Puffin Pottery Kiln, we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of where the magic happens! You can collect your pottery a week after painting.
Puffin Pottery also offers Ladies Nights and Story Time Paint Along sessions. Keep an eye out on our events calendar for the next dates available to book.

Mumbler was given the opportunity to paint for free at Puffin Pottery this time but prices normally start at £6. This is our open & honest review of our experience there.
