Having used their 'takeaway', use at home kits during Covid times, it was nice to finally get to paint with the family in the Bala Studio - easy to find at the end of the high street.
Helpful friendly couple who run the studio. Lots of useful advise and suggestions to make the best of out pottery works of "art"!
Great family fun.
A little on the pricey side compared to other studios, but the facilities provided are excellent, with a good range of ceramics including Halloween and Christmas themed. The range of paints and special effects are second to none.
So overall, an excellent family afternoon out. Finished fired works were available to collect just 5 days later (but they do post / hold them for you).
Thank you - we will be back!

Visited for the day to meet up with friends staying in the area. What a fabulous way to spend a few hours. It doesn’t matter how artistic you are, Seth is always on hand to offer ideas so that you produce pieces to be proud of. Can’t wait to visit again in October

Spent a very enjoyable couple of hours at Capel Clay. Seth is always on hand with useful advice when needed. There is a generous supply of tools and materials, so have a wide variety and choice of what to paint and techniques to use. It is a very friendly and relaxed ambience. I would advise anyone, whatever age, to pay them a visit - you will be glad you did.

We popped in on the off chance there was space to paint, luckily for us there was.

We were a family of four and there was so many choices for all of us to pick from, the kids really struggled to choose! We had a fantastic time, we found it very therapeutic, at times you could hear a pin drop with how busy we were bringing our creations to life.

The business is very covid secure and the owners are very attentive and on hand with some fantastic ideas. We are receiving our finished models by post and cannot wait for them to arrive.

I would not hesitate to recommend Capel Clay!!

Booked a 2 hour painting session for 3 of us via Facebook. Choose our own pieces to paint from a well stocked range so you make the day as cheap or expense as you like. There are also many painted items around to help you with some inspiration. Owners are extremely welcoming and very helpful and gave loads of hints and tips. We had never done this before and loved it. Even if it's at the end of your stay, you can have your piece(s) posted to you once is been fired. Cannot wait for ours to arrive in the post.

We have visited this place twice, a year apart, and had a great experience both times. You are greeted with a smile and the warm welcome continues throughout your stay. The people who run it are so friendly, informative and make you feel welcome and relaxed. They are more than happy to answer any questions you have, give you tips or help you fix any mistakes!
There is a wide selection of pottery to paint with painted examples around the studio for ideas and lots of paints to choose from, including glittery and speckled ones. The kids in our group who were 8, 10 and 12 really enjoyed the activity.
The studio is well organised to fit with Covid compliance too. You book in online and get a 2 hour time slot.

A great activity for all ages.

Lovely & welcoming! We were patiently guided through the process and encouraged to try arty techniques.
Kids loved it! (8,6 &4)
Can’t wait to see our results!
A must for a chilly wet day!

We popped in on an extremely wet Saturday over Valentine’s weekend to find some ornaments and decorate them for our first child (currently referred to as Pebble, due May 2nd 2020).
I found a sleeping dragon and my wife found a friendly dwarf figure....the scene was set! After a warm welcome (and some hand towels to wipe my glasses) we were told what to do and set to painting our figurines. I hadn’t done any kind of painting for years and found it really relaxing. There were lots of people doing the same thing, of all ages and the atmosphere was really relaxing and pleasant, great way to spend an afternoon out of the rain!
Our creations have just arrived with us in the post today and they are fabulous! Hope Pebble likes them as much as we do!
Thanks Capel Clay, hopefully we’ll return one day and baby can paint for him/herself!

Our third visit with the granddaughter, absolutely enthralling and satisfying activity. Very relaxed atmosphere, lots of friendly advice and tips, no pressure to complete within a session, and the thrill of collecting the fired pottery. Thoroughly recommended.
