Paint Pots of Devon

Rainy day fun for the whole family

The weather in Devon doesn’t always do what we want it to. While we’ve had some absolutely beautiful days in May, we’ve also had a few showery spells. There are plenty of activities, destinations and things to do in the area, but when there’s a bit of rain about, we’re very lucky to have Paint Pots of Devon just down the road in Crediton.

Pottery painting is fun for the whole family, and I have to admit, I’m always the one wanting an extra half hour to finish my latest masterpiece, but the grandchildren love pottery painting even more. 

The facility is well set up with tables at a good height and aprons available for those who want them. You can choose the base pottery piece from a huge selection of pieces of different sizes and complexity. Making a selection can take almost as long as painting it (for some of us!). Brushes, paints and water are all provided at the table and a handy colour reference is provided, so you can see how the colour will appear after firing.

Tea, coffee, juices and light bites are are available from the onsite café to keep you refreshed while you paint, and even the most distractable little ones will soon find themselves deep in focus as they work. Once your piece is complete, it will be collected for firing. This normally takes a couple of days, but express firing is available and they are happy to post your finished art to you if you’re only in the area for a short time. 

We always have a lovely time when we go and the kids always look forward to going back. It’s a very enjoyable way to spend and hour or two – whether its raining or not!  

You can contact Paint Pots of Devon through their website or at 07854 716 032.
