Each painter pays a Studio Fee of £4.50 per visit (£3.50 for under 16s, £14 for a family of two adults and two children). For baby or child handprints we charge one Adult Studio Fee, irrespective of the number of children. The price of the pieces ranges from £7.50 to £55 depending on what you choose. You can spend as long as you like painting and even come back to finish an item. You do not pay a Studio Fee for a repeat visit unless you start a new piece (one return visit allowed to finish an item) or a third visit onwards on the same piece. Our staff will give you a Clay Points card. Every time you pay a Studio Fee, the card will be stamped so that after the sixth visit your next Studio Fee is free. Regular painters can become a member of Clay Friends which provides many benefits.
