“Something completely different”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

I went here with my fiancee (and our puppy!) and we had a great time. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. You pick the piece that you want to paint, choose your colours, brushes, sponges and shapes and then off you go creating. You can buy a drink while you're there and then you just paint. I decorated a dog bowl and I'm no da'Vinci, but it turned out ok. We were visiting Whitby, so, after our pieces had fired, we had them posted to us.

Its a great way to unwind and be creative. There's a great selection of things to paint and the prices start off nice and low, so it doesn't have to be an expensive couple of hours.

“Great bit of fun even for adults :)”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Me and my other half went here last summer and we had a great couple of hours . They have a selection of things for you to decorate , all are different prices . This is nice for everyone but i would highly recomend it for families . Two tips -
Tip one . Go in with at least an hour to spare as it can take longer than you think
Tip two - Remember that you have to either get it posted to your house or pick it up two days later

“a very good way to spend an hour or two”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

At Doolepots you can choose the piece of pottery you'd like to paint, paint it in your chosen colours and design. You leave it with the helpfull staff to glaze and fire, then either come back and collect your piece or they will post it to you. Gets very busy at holiday time, so pre book.

Left the grandchildren many times when we go shoping, or its raining. You pay a Studio fee of £3.50 per painter (this covers the cost of paints, glazing and firing of your pot) plus the cost of whatever you paint, and there is plenty of choice from pocket money to £xx
