CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – 18th March 2020

I cant believe I’m writing this but The Potting Shed will close at 5pm on Saturday 21st March until this blasted virus is done and we can all safely be together again.

One thing is for sure – when we re-open, we’re going to need you to paint like never before! We have every confidence that we can ride out the storm and re-open in however many months it takes. Eddie, Jeanette and the team will be working on new ideas and workshops throughout this difficult time. Eddie will be testing out new cake recipes – we’re going to have to struggle through tasting them all, but we’ll think of you all as we do (assuming he can buy any ingredients!)

In other words we are facing a truly cataclysmic time with optimism, hope and positivity. We won’t be beaten by a flipping bug. No sir!

We send you all love and prayers for a swift end to this drama. We are working on take-away kits for those in self-isolation or just struggling to entertain the children. Our intention is to support you but obviously a little bit of cashflow would be great! Not going to lie, this is going to be a challenge but we are 110% confident we’ll be here when it’s over.

We’re particularly concerned for families with children with ASD or SN who are going to face additional challenges through this time. Honestly, if you think we can help in any way, just let us know.

We’ve switched off the answering machine but you can contact us through our facebook page – The Potting Shed, Wirral. We’ll be checking daily.

Loads of love xxx



Usually open Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm term-time.

7 days a week in school holidays.

Please check the calendar / facebook / google for any changes. We occasionally close for school visits etc – always best to check before travelling. We open later for private bookings, adult nights and parties – just ask!

Advance notice – we will be closed for the 4 day Easter Bank Holiday weekend (Friday – Monday). We will be attending a family wedding which doesn’t leave enough staff behind to open up. Sorry!


Please give us a ring and save a table if you can – especially at weekends or during school holidays.

Always book in advance if you need help, for instance with baby prints. Thank You so much!


Open in the evening for groups – by appointment only. Give us a ring to discuss. We do lots of Rainbows/Brownies/Guides and Beavers/ Cubs/Scouts groups as well as youth groups, WI, Church groups, Hen parties, adult birthday parties etc etc. Oct – Dec evening are especially popular and you need to book them well in advance.


Adults Nights

First Thursday of the month from Feb to Sept: 6.30pm ’til 10pm.

Every Thursday from October to December: 6.30pm ’til 10pm.

These evenings are very popular and many are full months in advance. You must book in advance to reserve a table and there is a £5 a head non-refundable deposit to secure your booking.

Next adults night with availability is Feb 6th 2019!

You are welcome to come alone or in a group of any size. The evenings are very relaxed and sociable. You are welcome to bring a bottle of wine or two if you wish (although we feel obliged to warn you that the quality of your painting will deteriorate with the quantity of alcohol consumed!). Nobody seems to mind how the pottery turns out after a glass or two however! Some people take the painting very seriously, others take the socialising very seriously. We don’t mind as long as everyone has a great time!

These evenings are as much about the chat and laughter as the painting – that’s why they are so popular. You don’t need to be in the tiniest bit artistic, we have all the skill, tools and techniques you’ll ever need. Artistically challenged painters are our forte!
