Capture baby footprints and handprints forever
The time when they are small is so precious and fleeting. Don't miss out on creating treasured keepsakes from baby footprints and handprints. Book a table in our Covid-secure Studio and we can help capture the prints for you with our Covid-secure process or purchase a tailor-made pottery kit for painting at home. From plates, tiles, mugs, frames, clock and much more, for creating precious pieces for yourself or gifts for friends and family. For those doing this at home, we've created a tutorial on YouTube, so you don't have to miss out if you aren't ready or able to come to our Sussex Studio.
