Painting & Prosecco Night!

byobWe are super duper excited to announce our next Painting & Prosecco night date for September! Especially as this time we are going to be doing it in association with The Front Room of Penzance!! (2 doors down from us) and they have a bar wahoo!!!

If you fancy indulging in a bit of an alternative and arty night out with the girls (or the boys) it will cost you £8 but that includes all your glazing and firing costs regardless of how much you paint & a free glass of prosecco!

You will need to pick your pottery in advance so get in touch to book and join us on September 29th from 6pm. Spaces are limited so be quick to get yourselves a spot and have an amazing night out with The Craft Box @ The Front Room to get over the trauma of it being September already! xxx




The Unicorns have arrived at The Craft Box Cafe!

After a long wait we have finally been able to get our hands on these gorgeous unicorns! We have been trying to get these in for so long so we are super excited. The little beauties in the photo have been painted but not glazed or fired yet which is why the colours are so pale right now but they will be going for a night in the kiln this week and will be ready to see very soon. To paint your own pop into either shop and get your hands on one while they last. We are already chasing our next delivery of these.


Talking of new bits and pieces April has ordered in some absolute beauts recently! The clocks are most definitely our favourite and we think they would make a stunning new baby or new home gift and we really want to paint some Beatrix Potter characters on one but really what we can’t wait too see is what you all come up with to decorate them!

Also we have our next evening opening on Friday in the Penzance store, there a few places left but we don’t expect them to last long so get in touch if you are interested in attending. Enjoy an evening of painting and feel free to bring a bottle to *ehem* ‘enhance’ your painting prowess. These events are always great fun and make for a lovely evening with friends doing something a bit different and of course you end up creating something great too. We absolutely can’t wait!!! To book call us up or send us a message via Facebook.


Ladies Night in Penzance

we have crafts to do

So we hosted our first ladies night on Friday and it was amazing fun! We had a full house and lots of different things painted, It was a night full of friends, families, pottery, wine and nibbles.

  In fact, it was so much fun we’ve decided to do it again on Saturday September the 26th!! We only have 18 spaces for this one so pop into store and pay your £10 deposit to avoid disappointment and secure your space if you’d like to join us!

Obviously it would be unfair to leave out our lovely ladies of Helston so we are having a party night on Friday September the 25th too! The Spaces will also be limited to 16 and again if you are interested in securing yourself a space then pop into our store and pay your deposit to secure that all important space

The £10 you pay will go towards anything you paint on the night. If you are attending the Helston party then you will also need to choose your item in advance from our Facebook Bisque Album. How exciting! We are thinking of making this a regular thing as the first one we did was so much fun. What are your thoughts? Tell us on our Facebook page, we love to hear your views on things and any feedback is welcomed :) xxx
