Happy Christmas

Have Fun

Christmas is coming and we’re all going to get fat, not just the Turkey/Goose/NutRoast  😂. So why not come and burn some of your pre Christmas calories being artistic at Razzle Dazzle?! This can be such a fun and relaxing way to make some truly special gifts for your loved ones at Christmas or come to think of it, at anytime. We have lots of lovely items to choose from which would make a perfect gift.  Alternatively, why not bring your friends or family along for a treat, relax, create, have fun and build those special memories together.

Gift Giving

It's that time of the year again where we are all thinking of what to get someone for Christmas.... Not artistic yourself but your person is?  well then....   While not the most exciting thing to wrap up we all know that a Gift Voucher is always a safe bet because the receiver can spend it how they like.

How to buy

If you would like to purchase vouchers from us then, at the moment, you need to either pop into the studio or give us a call on 0115 905 6029 during opening hours and we can post them out to you. We are looking at getting our website updated so that you will be able to order them online but that is a little while away and not going to be ready for this gift giving season!

Important Christmas Dates


If you are more of a 'let's make a special present' kind of person then you will need to get your skates on and book in soon to make that unique gift. Saturday tables are filling up fast and we highly recommend booking if you are wanting to come along to paint. Also it is worth calling the studio to book, especially if it is a bit last minute because we may be able to fit you in in a non standard booking time (perhaps there is a 90 minute slot available  but the booking system works on 120 minutes). So even if the online system says no availability give us a call just in case. You never know!

Late Night Painting

We have one late night session planned for general painting and this is Wednesday 7th December. We will be open until 7pm, so if you can only make it after school this is your day! Please book through the online Book Now option.

If however you are a grown up (in age not necessarily attitude!) then we have our last Me Time of 2022 on Thursday 15th December. There are currently a couple of tables available so if you want to come, get in quick! Remember too that you can make a night of it and bring along your own wine & snacks! We do sell hot and cold drinks too though.

Saturday 17th December

This is the last day that you can paint and your pottery will be fired and ready for you to collect on either Tuesday 20th, Wednesday 21st or Thursday 22nd December. After that we will be closed until Wednesday 4th January 2023. If you want to come in on that day - guess what? Yes book now!

Take Away at Christmas

What to do between Christmas & New Year?

This year we are not going to be open during the 'inbetween', it has been a super busy year and we need a rest, as do our kilns who  have been working overtime. However that doesn't mean that you will miss out on some Christmas Holiday painting - why not come in just before we close for the holiday and pick up something to paint at home!

We still do take away kits, all you need to do is pop in at any time (no need to book) and pick up what you would like and we will supply you with the glazes and if you need them even paint brushes. You just need to bring everything back in the new year and we will get it all glazed and fired for you then.

Finally, Thank You

Once again we would both like to thank all of our lovely customers who have made this, our twelfth, year very busy! If you have been in this year and haven't written us a glowing review then please do! Word of mouth is the best form of advertising and if you know someone who would love to come in then please tell them about us!

If you haven't been in for a while - where have you been? We are still here and would love to see you in 2023!

Lots of Love Nichola & Jane xx

Nichola & Jane wish you all a Merry Christmas
Ho Ho Ho from us two!

Morning pottery lovers!

Just a really quick email to let you know that we have had a couple of cancellations for Me Time tonight (Thursday 26th) so if you fancy a last minute night out give us a call on 0115 905 6029.

Other News

Half term week next week - we are open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday. Closed on Friday for the Jubilee. May half term is historically not as busy as the other holidays but we still recommend booking your table either using the book now option on our website or give us a call. If you decide to risk it on a walk in then we will do our best to find you a table.

The last day to paint a super special gift for your dad is Saturday 11th June. Those items will then be fired and ready for collection by Tuesday 14th June 2022.

Good Morning !

I just realised that I have been so busy thinking about February Half Term, putting posts out on social media, ordering in new stock and also making a lot of new stock too that I had forgotten to put out a post to our lovely customers.

Well here I am now. So what have we been up to this last couple of months and what is coming up?

Half Term

If you have school age children they you will know that it is Half Term in Nottingham next week. So if you are thinking about some interesting and creative activities to do with them then be sure to book yourselves in for a session at Razzle Dazzle!

Tables are filling up but at the moment there are still plenty to be had, especially later in the day, so arriving around 3.30pm or 4pm. For a 4pm arrival you will need to call or message as the booking system has 3.30pm as the last arrival time. This is because it is set up for a two hour session, but one & half hours is normally long enough.

Me Time

We have got the adult only Me Time evening dates all sorted out now. So if you would like to come along without the kids for a relaxing few hours with a friend or two then pop over to the website to see the dates and book yourselves in. The next one is the 24th February 2022. On these evenings you can also have a "Play with Clay' option. If you are interested in finding out more then please get in touch. (we do not have a pottery wheel so no throwing here)

Me Time Evening

New Pottery

We have a few new things in the studio and also some things that haven't been in for a while. We have been busy manufacturing some of our own items. Our suppliers are still playing catch up with overseas deliveries but it seems like things are getting back to normal. Which is relief not just for our industry but everyone else too.

For some, me included this has become one of those subjects we are quite frankly sick of talking about! However, just so you know we are keeping the spaced out tables and we have hand sanitiser on the tables. If you want to wear a face mask whilst here feel free. Our staff are not required to and do not.

Thanks for reading all the way to the end! See you soon, Jane (& Nichola too)
