At Painted Peppermint we believe mobile is best. That’s why we bring our ceramics and workshops to you wherever you are. By collaborating and actively working in partnership with organisations near you, Painted Peppermint will be found at soft plays, structured baby /toddler groups, parties, cafes, leisure centres, schools, pre-schools, after school clubs, residential homes, community groups and many more.
All our ceramics are hand painted, glazed and kiln fired. Once kiln fresh they are beautifully packaged and returned back to the organiser or venue. Our paints are non-toxic and washable on all fabrics making us a perfect non-hazardous creative activity and we are completely mess free.
We capture both baby and children’s hand and footprints on ceramics. This is our speciality so whether it’s a beautiful solo print or one of our contemporary designs we use high quality ceramics to make the perfect keepsakes.
Not forgetting our furry friends we paint their paws too. We will happily visit you in the comfort of your own home or you can find us at various animal events, dog shows, vets and puppy clubs.
The team host a variety of parties for both children and adults from birthdays, hen doo’s, baby showers, team building or just a get together.
We have designed a way to turn your child’s drawing or handwriting into an original piece of ceramic. It’s easy, just snap it, send it then receive it! Send us a photograph of the drawing straight from your phone and we will take care of the rest.
These workshops are perfect for adults to spend time with like-minded individuals who also want to kick start their creativity or get away from screens and housework for a bit. Working with ceramic materials and discovering techniques you will create stylish items for yourself or to give as a gift. The Painted Peppermint team love sharing our passion for ceramics and you don’t have to be the craftiest person as our workshops are designed to teach, explore, create and enjoy. Workshops are hosted in cafes, pubs, community centres and church halls all year round during the daytime, evenings or weekends. If you would like us to come to a venue, please contact us.
During term time Painted Peppermint after school club is about fun, creativity and exploring new materials and techniques through educational art and crafts. Suited for children aged 5-11 years old we focus on ceramics through clay building, drawing design and ceramic painting followed by various different craft activities. Our clubs take place in a safe and caring environment and are a lot of fun. Our programme of carefully developed creative activities is great for confidence, hand eye coordination, social skills and wellbeing.
We attend various events with our pop up ceramic studios. Bringing everything with us you can find us at many baby & toddler groups, classes, pre-schools, fetes, festivals, craft fairs, coffee shops and much more. If you would like us to pop up, please contact us.
We take clay impressions from babies aged 2 weeks and over so now you can capture those precious prints forever.
We use very soft clay and taking the impressions is relatively quick but the overall process does take on average 3/4 weeks as we carefully dry the clay naturally before its first firing. We paint, glaze and fire the impressions again before framing them so if you are ordering as a gift, be sure to allow enough time for us to work our magic. You can choose framed impressions or hanging plaques. We have a choice of colours and frames which can be discussed at your appointment.
Our Takeaway kits provide you with a variety of activity options. Whether it’s a children’s party, wedding reception, baby shower or a group of friends we create kits to suit your requirements. Each kit contains easy to follow instructions, your chosen ceramics and equipment for fun ceramic experience. We charge a £20 deposit for each takeaway kit which is fully refunded once returned. So, round up your friends and family and have a creativity blast. Contact us for more information and costs.
