"Whatever the age, whatever the occasion, come and try your hand at Robert Gordon Paint Your Own Studios." Robert Gordon has something for everyone and I am about to tell you some of the many reasons why you should stop by for a look. Make sure you allow an entire morning or afternoon for your visit as there is plenty to do there. Children of all ages enjoy being creative and what better way to preserve some of their artwork than by giving them the opportunity to decorate a platter or mug to take home and keep or give as a gift. Grandparents would love a hand painted mug from the grand kids and they also make fantastic gifts for Christmas, Mother's Day or Father's Day too. There is a huge range of shapes and sizes when it comes to selecting a piece to paint, from mugs and platters to popcorn bowls and money boxes. The actual painting studio itself has plenty of seating and it is well equipped with plenty of supplies. It also features stamps, sponges and stencils for the child who would prefer something different to painting with a brush. The staff at Robert Gordon are always on hand to assist the smaller children or the parent who would like to capture their babies hand or footprint onto a piece. There's more to Robert Gordon than painting a platter though. There is a wonderful shop selling stylish home wares and gifts. From plant pots to pretty up your garden or dainty tea sets that will look beautiful at a afternoon tea party. They also stock a wide range of designer cupcake "skirts" for the baking enthusiast which have exploded in popularity in recent times. There is also a wide range of designer baby accessories from toys to bowls and all that's in between. All of that painting and shopping is going to be exhausting so why not relax in their cafe and treat yourself to a coffee or traditional milk shake for the kids? As for food to eat, you simply cannot leave without indulging in one of their mouth watering cakes or cookies! So if you'd like somewhere to go that's a little arty thrown in with some shopping and yummy treats all rolled into one afternoon then look no further than Robert Gordon, I am sure you will become a regular visitor.
