Paint, make, eat and have fun at Fired

A bit about us

Fired paint a pot is a friendly family focused pottery painting cafe and creative hub just 5 minutes walk from The Rock in Bury. 

We have hundreds of pots for you to choose from. You can paint them to have fired in our kiln (ready 1 week later), use a paint that can be taken away the very same day (not suitable for functional or food items)  or foam clay.

It is not just crafts we get creative with...it is food too. We make all our own food. For kids there are decorate your own pizza, cupcakes or ice-cream. We serve great coffee and cake too.
