Please be advised that we are following the government recommendations regarding public gatherings and we have taken the difficult and sad decision to close the studio for the time being.
We only started our little adventure 7 weeks ago and have been overwhelmed by the support of our customers. We are sad that his has happened, however it is important to stay safe. We are remaining positive and have a wealth of ideas for improvements to the studio. Therefore we shall use this time to put these plans into action so that when we are able to re-open we can offer you an even lovelier experience when you visit. Keep your eyes peeled on Facebook for updates!
COLLECTION: If you were unable to get in to collect your pottery prior to us closing, don't worry we will keep your pieces safe until we are open again. I will continue to monitor calls and emails, so if for some reason you do urgently need to make a collection, please call or message me and we will endeavor to help.
Thank you for your support and understanding during this confusing and difficult time.
Stay safe my lovely customers,
Gaynor - Owner, Kilnwood Studio
The studio fee covers the cost of the paint, the glaze and the kiln
We have a wide selection of pottery to choose from. All prices are marked on the shelves beside the pottery.
As a guide we say that an average spend per person per visit including the studio fee would be around £12-£20.
We're so excited to be at Kilnwood Studio. A big thank you to Jane for the amazing handover. We wish her well in her new venture as a Hypnotherapist.
The studio will continue to run as normal, however, watch this space for news of updated stock, new party packages, events and more...
Kilnwood Studio is a pottery painting studio set in the heart of Uckfield, East Sussex.
When you arrive at the studio we will welcome you in, show you to a table and get you settled.
Whilst we love you to just pop in, weekends and school holidays do get very busy. Therefore giving us a call to book a space will ensure that you're not disappointed.
Browse our wide selection of pottery and choose the item(s) you'd like to paint.
Items are then wiped with a damp sponge to remove any dust and allow for the glaze to stick beautifully to your piece.
The lid of each paint pot displays the finished glaze colour. We suggest 3 coats to get to this level of colour. if you'd like a more washed look, simply apply less coats. We also have handy plates on each table displaying the finished colours and corresponding pot numbers to make them easy to find.
You're ready to get painting! We have lots of tools and tricks to help you paint your masterpiece, so feel free to ask if there is something you need. There is no set session time, take as long as you like - creativity can't be rushed!
Once you've finished painting, leave your pottery with us. We will glaze and fire your work in our on-site kiln. This will ensure items are made food and dishwasher safe. It also makes them look beautiful and shiny!
When your pottery is ready for collection we will send you a text or give you a call to let you know. Typically this is around a week after your painting session.
We will look after your pottery until you are able come back at your convenience to collect your finished piece.
