Welcome To Frankie’s Paint-It Pottery

Frankie’s Paint-it Pottery Studio is a well establised and ever growing pottery painting experience in Liverpool.

How it works…

Choose an item from our large selection of bisque and then paint it how you wish using our range of coloured underglazes. All necessary equipment is provided. We will glaze and fire it for you in our kiln and it will be ready to collect after a week. If you are visiting Liverpool, we can post or courier out your pottery for an additional postage and packing fee. Please note, uncollected pottery will be disposed of after 3 months.

Cost of painting a pot

The cost is £3.50 per painter studio fee (includes use of all of our underglazes, all equipment, glazing and firing), plus the prices of the pottery you choose to paint. Prices start at £12 and go up to £50+ for large heavy items. We have a wide range of pottery which is constantly being updated and there is something for everyone.

Booking and planning your visit

We recommend booking to avoid disappointment, especially at very busy times such as weekends, after school and school holidays. The best way to book is to call the studio directly during opening hours on 0151 735 0043. Emails and enquiry forms may take a several days to be answered, especially at busy times as we are all involved with the studio side of things! If we have empty tables (that have not been booked up), then we will take walk-ins but that is a rare occurrence at busy times of the week and you risk disappointment if you just turn up on the off chance. We operate specific table times and stagger the start times to enable people to choose their pots. We also operate long shared table in our studio.

Morning table sessions are 10.00, 10.30 and 11.00
Early afternoon table sessions are 12.30, 1.00, 1.30
Late afternoon table sessions are 3.00, 3.30 and 4.00
All sessions are 2 hours.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
