Painting ceramics or pottery is a creative, fun and relaxing activity – an activity where all ages and abilities can express their creativity; no prior experience required!

The cost is dependent on the piece you choose to paint. Our dinnerware (mugs, bowls, plates etc) start from $24 per piece and our ornamentals (hearts, insects, animals etc) start from $20 per piece. These prices include everything – the piece, paint, glazing, firing and wrapping.

Our Albany studio is the perfect place have a kids birthday party, a family celebration, some school holiday fun, a weekend family creative activity, a girls catch up or ladies night, date night, some team building that everyone can do, a hens party … our studio is the place for where you are wanting an activity that is different, affordable and memorable! If you can’t make it to the studio, we can come to you!

We go to schools to help students create a stunning art wall for the school grounds or a unique piece of art as an art project. We work with church groups to help them create memorial walls. Community groups use our studio for creating tile murals in and around local parks and shopping centres.

Our “Paint your Own” ceramics studio on the North Shore of Auckland has been helping create memories since 1988.

Birthday Parties

What better way to celebrate your special occasion than together with friends and family – everyone creating a keepsake together! You and your guests each choose a piece from our huge range of ceramics to paint (ceramic pieces starting from $20).
Your party is hosted by a PTE team member who will be on hand for help, suggestions and tips. You can have the party in our party room at our Albany studio or we can bring the party to you! Best of all… we do the cleaning up!
We have been coming here for years and today the place looks renewed and refreshed along with some new designs and colours as well as a better variety of paint brushes.
