On the glinting shore of the Northumberland coastline, just to the south of Berwick upon Tweed, Pot-A-Doodle Do is filled to the brim with fun and educational excitement for all the family. We are just a stones throw from the beach with magnificent views and lots of open space to run around, explore and have fun.
There’s something for everyone at Pot-A-Doodle Do from small kids to teenagers, parents and grandparents. Plates, bowls, cups, trinket boxes, models and mosaics- we have got it all-we just need your personal touch to make your work of art. You can use sponges, stencils, pencils and brushes – be as creative or traditional as you like! Then its into the kiln to be fired and you can come back to pick up your masterpiece and witness its transformation. Some of our collection can be painted and taken away on the day so all is not lost if you can’t come back. If you don’t fancy ceramics there is a selection of decopatch, foam clay or mosaics to choose from. BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL (as the studio may not be open every day due to staff availability), Call 01289 307107. One hour slots, limited spaces.
