Star Glazers Pottery Painting

Star Glazers is based in the heart of Falmouth on the Old High Street, and a perfect rainy day activity for the whole family. Have a go at creating a keepsake from your happy holiday by painting your very own pottery. Pop along, choose an item, get cosy with a cup of tea and a cake and pick a design to get started. When you’re done, your item will be glazed and ready to collect in seven days.

Star Glazers was created by Christine Walker. Christine studied art at school but never bought into art for art’s sake. For her, art needed to live in the real world, to have a function and to be practical. And so it was that pottery became her passion. She describes the process of turning clay into ceramics as being something akin to alchemy and found working with the medium to be great for centring herself.

Star Glazers is very much a family business in which partner Mike and son, Teddy, provide her with ideas and enthusiasm and support her with endless cups of tea and cuddles.

The studio has a range of paints, stencils and stamps, and even helpful drawing books to give you some inspiration and to help get the best out of your pottery painting experience. With helpful staff on hand to offer handy tricks and tips to help you achieve your vision, you’re bound to create a masterpiece. 

All of their paints and glazes are non-toxic and food safe (although we do not recommend using them in the microwave or dishwasher to avoid damaging the glaze), so if you’ve always wanted that bespoke platter to serve up a family roast, or you want to bring something home to remind yourself of your wonderful holiday in Cornwall, Star Glazers is the place to do it.
