Pottery painting studio ready for half term

Shrewsbury’s pottery painting studio has a range of exciting activities lined up for half term.

Splat n Splodge opened in the Parade Shopping Centre in St Mary’s Place earlier this year and has established itself as a fun destination for adults and youngsters alike.

“Everyone seems to love visiting the studio – they can express their creativity by using paint and craft materials and go home with a personalised present,” said Splat n Splodge owner Kelly Wood, who saw a gap in the market for the venture.

“We are looking forward to a busy week and have taken lots of bookings for half term and we also have some great Halloween activities lined up for customers on October 31st.”

The studio allows children – or adults - to choose a piece of pottery, ranging from a tile to a teapot, and decorate it in a range of colours. The item is then glazed and fired by Kelly and collected later by the customer.

“It is really good fun and there has been a great response to the new business since we launched,” said former crèche leader Kelly who has always loved anything involving craft and creativity.

She hosts children’s parties at Splat and Splodge and is also runs crochet, sewing and embroidery sessions.

In addition she now makes ceramic bunting, buttons and Christmas decorations, with festive stock available from November.  

Special offers include Toddler Time every Tuesday10-12 and Tea Time Treat every Friday after 3pm, both with a15% discount. Terms and conditions apply to both sessions.
