So much to do....so little time...

You dont need to be an artist to create your own masterpiece
Be an artist for the day.

Have you noticed how every homewares store has the same stuff for sale. Everything is a clone of something else and nothing is unique anymore. Unless you buy a one-off or something extremely expensive, and the two usually go hand in hand, its hard to find something a little bit "different" in the mainstream shops..

At Colour Me Mine studios, you can be an artist for the day and create your very own unique one-off. I always receive compliments on mine (painted for me by my mum) and I love that no one has the same.

paint something to suit your home decor


It's a pretty simple process. Pick your items from their vast selection. There is definitely something for everyone. Once it is painted they will fire it for you and call you when it is ready for pick up. You can then take home your creation and display it proudly.

How much does it cost to create your very own work of art?
The studio fee is $16 per painter per day plus the cost of your choice of ceramics. This fee is only charged once no matter how many pieces you choose to paint and covers the use of paints, tools, glazing, firing and, of course, their expert help.

Ceramic pieces start around $15 for mugs, $18 for jewellery boxes all the way up to $100 for large items.

Is there a time limit?
No, You can take as long or as little time to paint your piece during your day there.

Is the paint safe?
Yes, all the paints are non-toxic, lead free and food safe.

Do i have to be artistic?
Not at all. Colour Me Mine has stencils, rubber stamps and thousands of designs on computer that can be traced or transferred.

Anyone can be an artist at Colour Me Mine Studios.

Can I hold a party there/Make a group booking/Take my children?
The studio has loads of ongoing special promotions with a range of discounts on studio fees and group bookings as well as half price studio fees for kids 5 and under. They even have a Friday happy hour 2-4-1 ie 2 people for the price of one and a special party room. Its best to check out the website as there are too many to list here, but they also do Kids Parties and Hens Nights.

Grab a bunch of girlfriends and make a day or night of it.

Bookings are strongly advised.

Your Comment
This sounds like a great way to create your own unique artwork. I am not very arty however I think I could probably produce something to take home and brag about. Great article and lovely photos.

I heard that summer Hill Studio has closed down. So sad as it was a fun place to spend a couple of creative hours.
