A little bit
about us

Untitled design-3 copy 3.png

Ceramics on the Hop started as a mobile ceramic painting activity. We now have a lovely studio in the pretty village of Writtle.


Having a studio allows for a wider choice of pottery to paint and the space to offer clay workshops.

No prior experience? No problem!

We are always on hand to provide guidance and support, ensuring that your pottery painting experience is both enjoyable and rewarding.

We'll walk you through the process, from selecting the right brushes and paints to mastering different techniques.

How does it work?

Choose your piece

Firstly browse the shelves and make your selection.

There is an extensive range of pottery blanks to suit all tastes and budgets along with seasonal and themed products.
There is a studio/firing fee of £5 per item.

The fun part!

Get creative and paint your chosen item with specialist ceramic paints. Remember, it’s mostly about enjoying the activity. Bold and simple or intricate designs will all come to life once fired 

Let the kiln work it's magic

Time to cook. After glazing, your work will be fired in the kiln.

It's usually a 7-10 days turnaround

Collect your masterpieces

Feel a real sense of achievement when you reunite with your totally unique ceramic wearing it’s dazzling, shiny coat. (Collection details will be on your invoice, you will only be contacted if there is a delay) please make sure you have your invoice number to hand when collecting as this is used to locate your pottery.

You asked... we answered!

We are always happy to answer any other questions you have.
