The Mug Tug - a Paint-a-pot studio on board a Contemporary 70ft Narrowboat, permanently moored at Barton Marina.  

Choose from almost 400 different ceramic shapes, there’s something for everyone.  

Choose your pot, paint on board, then leave it for us to glaze and fire for you to collect a few days later.  We can post out to you if required or if you're visiting us whilst on holiday.

Or if you would like to take your masterpiece home straight away then why not try Acrylic Paint or even Foam Clay.
