The perfect venue for your Children’s Birthday Party

The Painting Parlour is a paint your own ceramics pottery studio situated up a picturesque lane with fantastic views on the edge of the Village of Little Eaton, just outside Derby.

Here we specialise in stress free children’s parties, hosted in our pretty little ice cream parlour inspired studio, catering for between 8 and 16 people.We also offer a vast range of baby footprints onto pottery, expertly hand finished in an array of beautiful designs.

We also hold regular ladies nights too which are proving very popular with their bring your own wine theme. We are not however a drop in studio, appointments to paint or do prints can be made by contacting Jo who will do her best to accommodate you.


Amazing! Jo is fantastic with the kids & adults!! Just had my daughters 6th birthday party here and it was the easiest party to date. The hardest part of the day was telling the other half he'd just passed the road to the venue. We'll definitely be back. Thanks again Jo xx

My daughter and her friend had a joint 7th birthday party and Jo made the whole experience for them and their guests lots of fun and so lovely. The personalised plates for the girls were stunning and the little details such as umbrellas for them to go and potter in the garden and blow off steam were great touches. Jo was a warm party host and did a great job of explaining the process of painting the pots to the children. Would thoroughly recommend The Painting Parlour to anyone xx

The Painting Parlour is an absolute gem surrounded by countryside but with close easy access. My little 3 yr old boy loved painting his bowl for daddy this week in the gorgeous studio. Then Jo happily let him explore the water feature and fairy garden. We went last year and when I mentioned we were going again he remembered everything about it and got really excited...It must have made an impact. I find it really relaxing too, especially as I get a cuppa made for me! May have to go for a ladies night session with friends. Love love love the Painting Parlour x x
