Take home pottery painting kits - information

The customers collect the kits, decorate at home and then return the decorated bisque for firing.  It can be convenient for both the customer and business owner.  Be careful with booking arrangements and stock supplies e.g:

  • always ensure that the customers pay a deposit to cover all the materials that they take away.  That way, if the kit is not returned your costs are covered.
  • ensure there is a time limit for “hiring” the kit.  Just like wine glass hire, organise a set fee up to and including the return date (e.g 1 or 2 days later) and then an additional daily fee per day thereafter.

Pottery-to-go kits generally contain everything needed to organise a DIY pottery painting party, event, or just to paint at home with a few friends. Also included is a pottery painting instruction leaflet, all the equipment that you’ll need to paint your own ceramics and business contact information. Once the “hirer” has finished the ceramics and kit are returned.  The pottery items are then glazed and fired ready to return to the hirer. 

These kits are a great idea for a children’s party or sleepover activity, perfect for a group get-together or a memorable activity for special event or occasion.

Generally, the hirer pays for the pottery that is painted and the price of each piece includes glazing and firing.
