Would you be interested in an adults only pottery painting session?

If you’d prefer to come and visit us in the evening, maybe even bring a bottle with you. Please get in touch and we’ll let you know when we’ll be holding our next adult only event. We can also take private function bookings for groups of 12 or more adults.

Maybe you’re a business, group or club looking for a relaxing activity or team building session. We’re always happy to come up with a bespoke pottery painting session just for you!

Birthday parties, School groups and Clubs.

We’re the perfect venue for an indoor birthday celebration or art activity for your school or club. We have a special “Party Pack” selection of pottery available with a reduced studio fee for groups of 6 or more children.

We can provide party food & drink and even arrange a bespoke Birthday cake if required.

If your school or club is studying a particular topic or celebrating a special occasion we’ll work with you to come up with a themed session to fit.

Pottery Painting

Choose from our large range of plates, bowls, animal figurines etc and paint using a choice of 26 underglaze  colours.

Once you have finished your masterpiece, we will dip it into a clear glaze and then fire it to over 1000 degrees C to finish it off.

Please note items will be ready to collect within 3 – 4 days. If you’re not going to be around to collect then we can arrange postage for you. 

All items are individually price.

A £3.95 studio fee applies per item to cover paints, glazes and firing.


First choose one of our wooden shapes, animals or letters.

Next pick from a selection of specialist, brightly patterned papers.

Tear the paper up into small pieces and stick them on the shapes using special glue.

These items will be ready to take home the same day.

All items are individually priced.

A £3.25 studio fee applies per item.

You can paint whatever you like, either to take home to keep our or to give as a one off hand made gift.

Pictures using hand prints are a real favourite.

About Sticky Earth Café.

We are the original Norfolk based Ceramic Café established in December 2001.


Although we have always been a family run business we have recently been taken over by Jeni and her family as Sue is now enjoying her hard earnt retirement.  If you’ve been to see us before you’ll still see some familiar faces around the place and also be able to enjoy the same great activities in the same friendly, relaxed environment.

Our “Arty Crafty” activities are fun for all ages and no artistic talent is required, just come along and have fun. It’s the perfect way to while away a couple of hours, why not give it a go?

For those who don’t want to participate you can enjoy a freshly brewed cuppa whilst watching the rest of your group.

We do currently have limited food available but will soon be offering a selection of freshly baked cakes and savouries.

Please only use this form to book a table if it is more than 72 hours before you wish to visit. For all other reservations please call 01263 519642

Great place for kids (n their grown-ups too) to exercise their creative side by decorating pottery at the Sticky Earth Cafe in Cromer. Friendly and helpful staff, to help/advise on technique, colour densities etc. Paint one day n collect few days later (after firing completed). Lovely way to while away an hour or two.
