Capture that moment in time by creating painted ceramics and bespoke clay impressions

Baby Prints on Pottery


At miniPotters, we think that choice is everything so we have a wide range pottery on which you can print your baby's prints. Don't worry, we'll help you work out what you want and how your little one's footprints will look best on the pottery.


Next step is to choose the colours you want. We have a fantastic range of colours for you to select, and lots of samples for you to compare.


Let us help you get the best possible footprint or handprint. Our staff are well practised in getting the perfect prints from little feet and hands.


Leave your pieces with us to fire for you and we'll give you a call when they are ready for you to collect (usually no more than 2 weeks).

Clay Imprints

Don't worry, we'll be there to help you with everything! It can be tricky getting the best possible print of your little one, but we are super-practised at this and have the perfect knack :)

Mistakes don't matter, we patiently persevere until you are happy with your imprints. We don't like to boast but we usually get it right the first time :)

You can choose between footprints or handprints (or both!) for clay pieces and we will frame your pieces for you, ready for you to collect at a later date.

Painting Fun for Kids (& Grown-ups)


We have loads of pottery characters for children to choose from and enjoy painting. Book a table so you can relax and take your time painting. Cappuccinos and a range or teas served.

We encourage people of all ages to come and have a go painting some pottery, it's very relaxing and satisfying. Painted pieces can make great personalised gifts for friends and family.

Meet with the Owner of Mini Potters for a day and learn all the tricks of the trade. Ellie can give you information on how she started Mini Potters, the costs, the paperwork and give you full training on all the practical aspects of the job. We can also let you have a go trying out our kiln, doing some of your own glazing and taking some hand and footprints to help you build your confidence. We don’t mind sharing handy tricks and tips which we’ve learnt along the way either. If you would like to talk this possibility over, feel free to contact Ellie at or call us at the shop on 0208 944 7466.

Jessica Bosher opened her own Pottery Studio in 2017 www.minipottersbristol.com here’s what she said:

"I would like to say a big thank you to Ellie for helping me set up the franchise Mini Potters Bristol. Whist training at her shop in Earlsfield I gained some invaluable experience working closely with customers and staff. I had training in the glazing process and had hands on experience loading the kiln. The girls also showed me how they framed prints and I worked with customers to capture baby prints on to Pottery and into clay. Over time I have improved my artwork. I have been running Mini Potters in Bristol successfully for 2 years and Ellie has always made time for me to address any questions or worries I may have. She has provided me with a wealth of information and has and is still a brilliant mentor".
