Welcome to Pots & Pancakes

An award winning Paint your own Pottery Cafe in North Shields, near Newcastle.

In the interest of the safety of our staff and customers we have taken the decision to close for the next 2 weeks to help to slow the spread of the virus.  
There is one member of staff in Monday - Friday 10 - 3 operating the laser cutter they will also be available for collections but these must be pre arranged by phone.  
If you still want to paint during this time we are happy to offer takeaway painting sets these can either be collected or sent out via post please call the 
Craft Yourself Silly office to order on 0191 2960398.
After our 2 week closure we will reassess the situation and keep our customers updated via our website and social media.
