More about Whitby Kiln

A visit to Whitby Kiln (Paint Your Own Pottery and Art Studio), located in Whitby’s popular and quaint shopping streets, is a ‘must do’, and offers you a fabulous, relaxing space to get creative and have fun, for all ages and abilities, whether it’s on your own or with others. Whatever the weather, come dry day or rain - the door’s open.

Our Studio has been recently refurbished and can accommodate 42 people maximum (although those numbers are slightly reduced at this time) and is disabled friendly. Baby changing facilities and high chairs are available too.

Whitby Kiln carries an extensive selection of over 250 types of (bisque) pottery for you to choose from, and we cater for various calendar year occasions (and price ranges). Over 30 different colours of underglaze paints and plenty of tools are on tap, enabling you to create your unique, colourful masterpiece. Feeling stuck for ideas? No problem! Our Inspiration Station offers various techniques which are easy to perfect, and our friendly staff are always on hand to offer advice.

All the underglaze paints are non-toxic and food safe (which is really handy if you’re wishing to paint a piece of tableware!). We stock plenty of fun stock items such as our Party Pack, Takeout Kits and ‘Build Your Own Bear’ (ask in store or check the website for more info).


Why not whet your appetite with a Baytown Coffee? The fabulous drinks machine also serves Hot Chocolate. Rington’s Tea and a choice of soft drinks are available too. All our drinks are locally sourced wherever possible, in support of our local businesses. We also serve delicious local ice cream (Beacon Farm, Sneaton) all year round if you fancy it!

Collection of your masterpiece…

Once you’ve finished designing your pottery piece, leave it with us for glazing and firing. We aim to have it ready within 14 days. For visitors who are unable to collect, a postal service is offered (please enquire in store).
