Pottery painting studio and café in Stockport

We went to a great little pottery painting studio and café in Stockport today – perfect for a rainy day activity.

Brooklyn is a lovely, quirky venue which lets you choose from a wide range of pottery and ceramics (plates, mugs, money boxes, ornaments, figurines) to paint. Once you’ve finished painting your items, you leave them with the team there to put in the kiln, before collecting them a week later.

The lady in the shop was really helpful, giving me a hand with getting baby R’s footprints onto a plate and also keeping C distracted when he was getting a bit too boisterous! I would have liked to have stayed for a bit longer, but C’s attention span wasn’t up for sitting still for too long this time round.

Definitely one to try out sometime if you live nearby (the cakes and coffee are really good too!).

Good to know…

Cost: A coffee, apple juice, two cakes, and painting one large plate, an aeroplane moneybox and mini skateboard came to just under £30

Time spent there: Just over an hour (the three year old got a bit restless and had too much energy to sit still for too long!)

Tip: Some of the ceramics you can paint are quite expensive due to the size of them, but if you need a personal present for a relative or friend they’d be great
