Craftworks Studio


Craftworks is a paint-your-own pottery studio situated in the picturesque and ancient capital, Castletown, in the south of the Isle of Man.

With an extensive range of bisque to choose from, all of the equipment and expert advice is supplied to make your painting experience a happy one. Visit the studio at the beginning of your holiday to allow sufficient time to glaze and fire your pieces, alternatively special arrangements can be made for posting.

There is a studio fee of £5.00 per painter. The bisque is individually priced and prices range from £2 to £30.

If you are looking for family friendly fun, or simply looking for somewhere to escape into a world of imagination and creativity, the helpful staff at Craftworks Studio will help you to get the most from your visit.

Painting pottery is an indoor activity, and it's a perfect way to spend those rainy days that occasionally happen here on the Isle of Man.

We are also open on some evenings for events and we can arrange for the studio to be available for your own events outside of our normal hours. Should you wish to make a booking please ring 01624 823244.
