Paint Your Own Pottery
The Hive and Honeycomb offers paint-your- own-pottery, either in-house with us or as a take-home kit. Available anytime we are open, we have a large selection of pre-made bisque pieces and a well-stocked paint station, so your creative options are limitless! No special table booking or advance notice is required, although reservations are possible through the Reservations tab.
Prices vary by piece, between $20 – $95.
Painted pieces will be glazed and fired, and your beautiful shiny creation will be available for pick-up within 14 days. We aren’t able to make individual calls out when they come back, so please refer to the date stamped on your white sheet for pick-up date!
STEP 1 – PICK A PIECE OF POTTERY
There’s so much to choose from! We carry all sorts of pottery designs, and new shapes arrive regularly. Whether you’re looking for a mug, dinner plate, a vase, a fairy, or a shark, we’ve got all sizes and shapes of pottery to paint. Prices vary by piece, between $20 – $45.
When you’ve picked out your piece, one of our staff will explain how the paints work and you can get started on your masterpiece.
STEP 2 – CHOOSE YOUR COLOURS
We have over 50 non-toxic, bright colours to choose from, and our large tile colour samples show you what each colour will look like with 1, 2 or 3 coats, once it’s fired in the kiln. All our colours are compatible with each other, so you can mix and match.
STEP 3 – SIT DOWN TO PAINT OR GRAB A TO-GO KIT!
Brushes and painting supplies will be provided, as well as tips and tricks to make the most out of your piece!
If you are staying to paint, we have a full food and drink menu for you to enjoy during your stay 🙂
If you are grabbing to-go, get ready to get creative, paint at your own speed and in your own space!
STEP 4 – FIRE EM’ UP
When you’re finished, simply leave your piece with us and we will give you a timeframe for pickup.
Please allow up to 2 weeks for your piece to be ready. Note that we do not make calls out – please refer to your white sheet for the date your piece will be available for pick-up!
