The Craft Pottery Accessibility Info
We're passionate about creating a fun and inclusive space. Always reach out with any accessibility questions before booking, and we'll do our absolute best to accommodate everyone in your party.
Our front door is able to accommodate all chair widths, so our painting/party room is accessible. We also have a wheelchair accessible toilet which is in our ground floor studio. Our till desk is situated up a large step - If you are unable to access that part of the studio we can come to you to take the payment. Our sister studios pottery lesson (wheel throwing or hand-building) rooms are located on the first floor of the building, so they are not accessible for people with mobility issues as there is no lift and two large flights of stairs - To discuss the possibility of a pottery lesson that can cater to your needs please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know if you are attending in a wheelchair or mobility scooter - this way we can choose a table that is easy to maneuver in and out of.
Although we don't have any strict age requirements, it's worth noting that the nature of our business does cater more to an adult audience on Thursday and Friday evenings, as well as all day Saturday. This is due to large groups including hen parties, work nights and adult birthdays (we are a BYOB establishment). It is also usually quite loud and we play all genres of music. Sundays and weekdays tend to be much more family-friendly, but get in touch if you are unsure of when to book.
We are a safe space for breastfeeding a child, and can offer a seat in our reception if you would prefer to be in a more private area. We don't have lots of extra space, so we do ask that if you plan to bring a pram/s that you let us know so that we can allocate the correct amount of room for your booking. We have baby changing facilities in our accessible toilet on the ground floor. We have one highchair which can be reserved to use during your session, just let us know when booking.
Our painting room gets quite noisy, specifically at weekends and evenings. If you struggle with loud spaces, you can choose an outdoor table where there are only 3 other tables. Other options include: choosing to book for a quieter time, we are happy to discuss when these fall week to week, or ordering a takeaway kit so you can enjoy pottery painting in a place you feel totally comfortable. The bisque pottery can also have a strange feel (quite dry and rough) and our paint can have a chalky feel - if you struggle with these textures we have latex-free, vinyl gloves you can wear during painting. Painting can be messy, but we have plastic aprons for you to use and the paint washes out of clothes very easily.
If there is anything we haven't covered, please get in touch at email@example.com and we can do our best to help you. :)
