About
We are a family run business, and having children of our own we understand the joys, the challenges and the energy needed to keep little ones entertained! Lollipops Pottery Painting Studio is the ideal place to bring your little ones and be assured that they will be kept busy for hours at a time. Whether you are just popping in for a drink and a cake in our coffee shop, creating a mini-masterpiece, or you want us to organise a pottery party for them and their friends, the studio is always ready and waiting to be enjoyed. All of our studio assistants are experts in pottery painting, and can advise you at any time about items to paint, colours to use, and they aren't too bad at making a great latte in the meantime! We have moved to a beautiful rural location, with ample parking and outdoor space, very near to Leicester city. If the sun is out, you can enjoy the countryside views and get inspired, or if the rain is pouring, you can warm up inside our cafe with a mug of hot chocolate. Our studio is fully equipped with ample space for parking buggies, and a baby change station. We also have a dedicated Party Room which seats over 24 little ones so plenty of room to get creative and have fun. Booking in advance is strongly recommended. We are a breastfeeding friendly coffee shop.

Great family activity, Covid-Safe and Helpful Staff!

I went to Lollipops for the first time since they re-opened. I took my toddler to try and get some hand prints on pottery - It’s harder than it looks! Luckily Emma was on hand to help us get the perfect prints. She was great with my little one and showed us how to do it.

There’s lots of space across the two studios - they’re set up really well and it feels safe and clean.

Loads of choice of items - everything you can imagine and more.
Highly recommend Lollipops to anyone looking for a few hours of crafting, making that special gift or just entertaining the kids! Great selection of food and drink, we went back the next day just for ice cream!!

We went to Lollipops pottery today with a 4 year old and 1 year old, both had a great time painting, staff were extremely helpful and explained everything in detail. Price is reasonable, I would definitely go back, kids enjoyed it too 😉

Fun morning with babies in tow
Aug 2017 • Family
I visited Lollipops with 8 other mums and all of our young babies. We wanted to make baby foot print gifts for relatives and thought it'd be a nice activity for us all to do.

We were given a room to ourselves with plenty of space to spread out, and we were shown how best to tackle decorating the pottery items we'd selected.

The young man who looked after us, Jake, was an absolute credit to the place! He was completely unphased by room full of babies and was extremely patient with us. He helped me put the foot prints on all of my items. I hope he's being handsomely paid, because he was amazing! Each of us commented on how great he was and how kind and helpful, so please count this as 8 glowing reviews for him!

Great location, good choice of items to choose from re decorating & great advice on how to get the best from our momentos.

Highly recommend it! They also do good coffee & cake!

Kids birthday party
Mar 2017 • Friends
So had my 9 year old had her birthday party here and it was fantastic. Emily did the party and she was friendly and very knowledgeable.

The food was brilliant, the best at any party we've had. Plenty of food and so fresh and a good selection.

Have just picked up the pottery the children painted and the birthday girls special plate has come out great a lovely memento.

Decent coffee
Feb 2017 • Family
I was here because my daughter had a party. She had fun painting pottery.

Meanwhile I did some work in the cafe and enjoyed a nice Cappuccino. The guy tells me they use two shots in their standard cups, which is good. He appreciates coffee needs to taste! I picked a smaller 8oz cup and had a single shop Cappuccino, spot on. Hope he adds it to the menu!

Nice place.

love it here, so relaxing.
Aug 2016 • Family
We've been here so many times since my daughter was young, we still go now once or twice a year despite her being grown up.

a pot of tea, a gentle paint and light chatter.

It does get harder to choose what to paint having been so often, but there are usually a couple of 'new things' on the shelves.

easy parking, and the pub on the same site does a lovely meal.

Great family time together, approx £12-25

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Especially warmed to a girl called Ellie, she was a gem. Very encouraging to my family who were trying to paint their first plate/bowl.

Choose your own item to paint whether an ornament or bowl, plate/cup - variety of sizes and prices.

The only thing I wish I'd knew before painting my 'salad bowl' was that it couldn't be microwaved...

You need to visit in a week to pick up your finished item though.

There are refreshments available and some other shops in the vicinity.

Staff unhelpful
Aug 2016 • Friends
It was an enjoyable 2 hours painting our pots, however the women serving us was not at all helpful. As we arrived she seemed startled that we'd even want to paint anything then proceeded to sit us down without explaining anything before walking off, we had to ask her to explain when she came back again to sit down some other people. She seemed equally started when we asked for a drink which took about 10 minutes to arrive. I also feel like it would have a better atmosphere if music was playing in the pottery painting room. So overall it was a fun thing to do but it was slightly expensive and the staff could do more to help you.

Thank you for your review following your visit to the studio. As a family run business we pride ourselves on high standards of customer service so I am disappointed to hear that you felt that the member of staff who served you during your visit fell well short of providing that. It would be useful to know which date you visited the studio please so if there are individual staff members who require extra training that issue can be addressed.
