Foam Clay


Unable to make it back to collect your pottery? Try foam clay, our fun and effective alternative to painting! It dries in 1-2 hours meaning you can take it away on the day. Suitable for all ages and available in gift packs to go!

Foam clay gift sets can be purchased in store. Choose your animal from our huge selection AND choose your favourite colours! All for just £12 per set or £9 for members.




Looking to get their creative badges or simply indulge them in some fun and exciting craft activities (where you don’t need to worry about the mess!)? Book your group in for pottery painting at The Ugly Duckling! We have two packages to choose from to suit your needs and budgets:

  1. £8 per child: This budget-friendly package allows each child to choose from a selection of plates, bowls and mugs (1 item each).
  2. £10 per child: This fun and indulgent package allows each child to choose from a selection of animals or a theme of your choice (ex. jugs & vases for Mother’s Day/rabbits & egg boxes for Easter) (1 item each).

Whichever package you choose, we will include squash for the children and a complimentary hot drink for each helper so you won’t go thirsty!

We are a flexible bunch and are therefore happy to open the shop for your usual meeting times, which often means you can have the whole shop to yourselves out of hours! For availability and/or bookings, please call us on 01635 523778!
