Creating a Takeaway pottery basket

Takeaway Basket Information 27/3/20.20 - on hold till further updates from government

An opportunity to paint in your own home, in your own time. 

With a Takeaway Pottery Basket you can decide what you'd like to paint. There will be no extra charge for borrowing a takeaway basket. Your pottery costs need to total more then £20, and you will be required to pay a £20 deposit (which you will get back when the basket is returned).  The cost of the pottery is what you would pay on the shelves in the studio. Pottery items range from £5 to £40.

Takeaway Baskets can either be collected from the studio at an agreed upon time or it can be delivered within a 2 mile radius of Thirsk. There will be a small delivery cost outside this radius.

Takeaway Baskets are available over two options

                 1. Monday PM (drop off) - Friday AM (collection)

                 2. Friday PM (drop off) - Monday AM (collection)

Drop off will be on Monday & Friday between 1 -3pm

Collection will be on Monday & Friday between 10-11am

Baskets can be collected from the studio Mon & Fri between 11 - 1pm by prior arrangement only.

Minimal contact will be adhered to at all times for social distancing guidelines. Baskets and equipment will be disinfected prior to all baskets being distributed and returned. 

Baskets will be dropped/ collected off at doorstep deliveries and collected/drop off at studio entrance only to avoid any risks of infection. 

When you have completed your masterpieces, they will be collected and returned to the studio to be glazed and fired as normal. We have a guide of a up to 2 week turnaround on firing and glazing. 

Alternatively, you can ask us to make up a basket for you. Just let us know the age, what sort of items you would like to paint and what you would like to spend. 

There is only a limited number of baskets available. First come, first served. We can offer advanced bookings for Takeaway baskets.
