Our Story

Urban Clay Norfolk Ltd is a contemporary paint your own pottery studio situated in Aylsham, Norfolk.

Urban Clay welcomes all ages and artistic talents to come and experience a few hours of art therapy - there is always someone on hand to offer advice and guidance, or just top up the coffee and cake!
Please get in touch today to learn more about our offerings.

The Studio

At Urban Clay we wanted to create a space that was welcoming for all ages. We have plenty of space for pushchairs, high chairs and well-behaved dogs. Our toilet has excellent changing facilities as well as wheelchair access. 
The studio can comfortably accommodate 30+ people so is perfect for birthdays parties, hen parties, team building get togethers or just a good old catch up with friends!
There is plenty of free parking in and around Aylsham, but unfortunately none directly onsite.



Here at Urban Clay we wanted to be able to offer top quality food and drink from our local area. After a LOT of sampling and market research (!) we found some wonderful suppliers who have helped make us the place to go for great tea and cake.

Our coffee is our own blend from roasted by Tropic Coffee Ltd  in Norwich. Nelson and Norfolk Tea Company supply our wide selection of teas, freshly blended just up the road! We always have a wide variety of cakes available, including gluten free and vegan choices.

Feel free to drop in and sample our refreshments, we welcome non-painters too!
