One rainy, miserable Saturday afternoon, my boyfriend told me we were going to Kew for a surprise date. Walking 15 minutes in the pouring rain left me grumpy to say the least. However, when we arrived at the Ceramics cafe, my mood lifted! After much deliberation (there was so much to choose from and we wanted to paint everything!) we picked out the pieces we wanted (a clock and a cookie jar) settled down with mugs of tea and got painting. It was brilliant. There was a huge selection of paint, brushes, sponges and stencils so the sky was the limit when it came to painting! It was such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, a real treat to do something creative and completely different. There was a children's party going on upstairs so it was a little noisy at times but that didn't matter. We chatted to the mums and dads waiting to pick them up, all of them promising to come back soon. Without realising the time, we saw that we had spent nearly three hours there, happily painting and chatting. Once we were happy with our masterpieces we took them to the counter. They are fired in a kiln and you have to collect them at a later date, our were ready the tuesday after. The final results are wonderful, we are so happy with them and they look great at home. We already have plans for what we want to paint next - wedding presents, new baby presents and new home gifts for friends. It is such a perfect gift for someone (or yourself!) We cannot recommend this highly enough, we had a wonderful day and will definitely be back soon - thank you!
