Creative Fun at Pots2Go, Harrogate

Pots2Go is a small, child, pet and baby-friendly ceramic café on Montpelier Parade in Harrogate. Youngest had been pestering me for a while to go and last week we had a morning free whilst the older two were at tennis camp. I saw my opportunity to tick a box and gain much needed Mummy brownie points.

I only have one experience of painting pots with my kids and it was many years ago when the elder two were aged 4 and 2. It was a rainy-day activity I’d gleefully chosen whilst wearing my smug mothering badge. The badge didn’t stay on long and it has taken me 8 years to consider going again because both kids spent all of 30 seconds splatting paint on a small pig and a small skull, before announcing they were done. Both inane objects were poo-brown colour and have remained hidden in a drawer ever since.

This time, I was hoping for at least a pot I could make some use of, even if it was just for catching drips under the u-bend.

We were the first there, keen as mustard. Mabel chose a medium sized bunny to paint. I tried to point her in the direction of something useful, but it was the bunny or an even larger dog.

I opted for a pot with the word “LOVE” cut out the front.

We were both offered the use of aprons and we were then shown to our table, which was all set up with paints, brushes, water and kitchen roll for any spillages.

We spent just over an hour creating our beautiful pots. Mabel was focused and dedicated and we both thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pots2Go.

Highly recommended but probably for aged 5 and over. Pots start at £5 for a small egg cup. Mabel’s bunny was £16 and my pot was £15. I also had a cup of tea (£1.50) so our total bill was £32.50. Pots2Go is located at 25 Montpellier Parade, Harrogate.

RECOMMENDATION | Wainhouse Tower, Halifax

If you live in Halifax you’ve probably driven past Wainhouse Tower and not realised that for a few quid you can pay a visit and climb its spiral staircase. It’s “just” 403 steps to the viewing gallery (great leg workout) and there you can take in the stunning sights over Halifax and beyond.
