We began the Masterpiece journey back in 2001 and having outgrown two studios we have been well settled at Holmes Hill for several years, overlooking the lake and next door to Happy Days Café.
A family run business, Masterpiece is well established in the local area and we have many Masterpiece friends who form a regular customer base, some of whom have been crafting at Masterpiece since we opened. Several of our first children's birthday parties were held for customers who are now bringing their own children in for hand and footprint keepsakes, its lovely to keep in touch as we adapt our crafts to suit all ages.
We have a thriving adult customer base, dispelling the myth that pottery painting is only for the youngsters, something we regard as a great achievement. All of the crafts we have added to the studio are fun, sociable and relaxing activities for all ages and although many adults pick the quieter times of the week, for most it is a well looked forward to 'me time' activity, great for a family get together or celebration.
Masterpiece is run by a small team. Set up in 2001 by Gillian, now joined by Katie, Lou and our two weekend students Phoebe and Flora.
The studio ethos is to provide a fun and relaxing atmosphere for painters of all ages, where they can produce a masterpiece in a safe and welcoming environment.
