​​​​​​


This Art of Mine is a contemporary pottery painting and art studio located in the beautiful Kent countryside. Pottery painting is a fantastic activity for people of all ages. We are welcome to go and give it a try, simply 'drop-in' during opening hours. 

How it Works

When you arrive, you will be greeted by one of the creative members of staff who will show you around the studio, make sure you have a table and explain how it works. You will then pick the ceramic piece you like the look of and can begin painting. A member of staff will be around to answer any questions and offer tips and techniques to help you get the best result. Once you have finished your piece, it is paid for and left at the studio for them to fire in the kiln. After 1 week you can pop back in to collect your finished result. 

Classes

If you would like to extend your knowledge further, the studio also offers pottery painting, clay, and other art and crafting workshops. During these workshops you will learn new skills and techniques and create beautiful pieces to keep and give as a gift. These classes run from 7pm-9pm every Tuesday evening and some weekends. 

 

Children's parties, hen parties, group bookings and team building also available to book. The studio has lots of on-site parking for cars or a minibus and local accommodation can be booked locally at Coldblow. 

 

Guide Prices

Prices vary according to the type of workshops.
