Welcome to Emily’s Paint a Pot at Next Arndale Centre

Emily’s Paint A Pot at Next Arndale Centre

My second store is an exciting new joint venture with Next, located in Manchester Arndale. We are open from 2nd December to bring family fun to the city centre! There is pottery painting for all ages, with a variety of decorations to choose from along with our build a teddy, workshops and events. Here at our new store we are also working with the fabulous Gino D’Acampo’s restaurant ‘My Pizza and Prosecco’ for our children’s party food and Pottery and Prosecco evenings.

We also have our beautiful Minnie’s Treasures keepsake boutique in which we can create keepsakes that will last a lifetime for any age and in any specification. Our main studio seats 60 painters and also has it’s very own party room for any occasion. We hope you will join us and take a break from shopping with the children, or by yourself!
