Children’s Birthday Party Packages

Host a Pottery Painting Birthday Party in Preston, Lancashire for Adults and Children at Fired 4 U!

Our Pottery Painting Birthday Party activity in Preston, Lancashire, gives the children and Adults, the opportunity of an arty party with a difference.  Details of the organising from your point of view is listed for you at the end of the information.

We run birthday parties Wednesday to Saturday

The finished painted pottery items can be in place of the traditional party bag once the piece has been Fired 4 U.
The special birthday child receives a one off personalised plate at their pottery painting birthday party here in Preston, created with the help of their guests and Fired 4 U (see terms and conditions)

To mark the occasion the Birthday child painter puts their hand print on the party wall in the studio and we turn it into an animal of their choice.

Our birthday parties are ideal for children age 5 to 92 and are available Wednesday to Saturday

PLEASE NOTE; when paying the balance, if this is over £100 you will need to have your actual physical bank card with you to make the payment. We will NOT split to 2 payments as this increases the amount of bank charges we pay and therefore loose doing this. Many thanks

What Our Customers Say

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for Indigo’s party on Sunday.  She and all her guests had an amazing time and we can’t wait to see the results when Katie Kiln has finished doing her bit!!!!!  I would totally recommend birthday parties at Fired 4 U to anyone who is looking for a creative, entertaining and hassle-free party for their children. Thanks too for the voucher – really looking forward to using that!

Sarah and Indigo

I really enjoyed the party pack that I picked and there was a good selection to choose from. All my friends and myself had a great time. I liked painting my unicorn the best, and now it is at home l enjoy looking at it and remembering my party. I also loved my Harry Potter plate signed by my friends. I’m looking forward to seeing my handprint on the wall. Jane was really helpful and made sure we had a great time.

PS fish and chip tea was fab.
