Friendly & Relaxed Ceramic Cafe

‘ChatterBox’ Ceramic Cafe is a very friendly and relaxed cafe where delicious hot drinks, light meals and home-made cakes, including vegan /gluten free options, can be enjoyed alone or in conjunction with painting a pot

We offer a variety of ceramic products, including personalised giftware, commission painting, creative courses, parties “ both on-site and off-site, corporate events and ‘bring a bottle’ nights.

Located in Tutbury, near Burton on Trent and Derby, we are very child friendly, with an outdoor area for little ones to play in. With this in mind, we can also host your child’s birthday party, and to make it as hassle-free as possible for you.

Painting a pot appeals to all ages from babies to great-grandparents! It is both relaxing and rewarding, and following the glazing and firing process, the tableware items may be used as everyday pieces. We provide all the materials you need to create your unique piece. Simply leave your pot with us and we will glaze it, fire it in our own kiln, then package it ready for you to collect about a week later.

We have dozens of ceramic items to chose from, starting from £5.00. Enough to keep you and your little ones amused, larger items to challenge the more experienced painters. The tableware range offers items such as plates, mugs, saucers, jugs, vases etc

What we offer

Painting on Site

Come in and choose from our extensive range of pottery.  All prices include paint, glazing and firing in our kiln. There are no hidden extras and we do not charge studio fees

Painting off Site

If you can’t get into the studio but would still like to paint, then we can arrange to bring the studio to you. We just bring some ceramics for you to choose from, along with all the materials you will need to paint your pot. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Party Packages

Whether you’re 3, 5, 30 or 80, here at ChatterBox, we can provide you with the perfect party package. Painting parties are great fun for any age or occasion, and if required we can organise your party food. If you’re old enough, you can bring your own party drinks!! 😉

Food & Drink

We have a delicious selection of hot light meals, snacks, salads and home-made cakes on our menu. If you’re just popping by, why not let us serve you with a freshly ground coffee or a cappuccino, latte (soya also available),  espresso, regular or indulge in a cream tea, with scone, butter, jam and clotted cream. We also offer pre-booked afternoon tea.
