Hand and Footprints

…are our speciality!

We just love painting tiny toes!

Invite a friend or bring along your antenatal group for a new baby catch up and have fun painting keepsakes together. Our child-friendly team are on hand to help.

Baby, toddler and family painted prints on pottery make lovely keepsakes and fantastic gifts for Mother’s or Father’s Day, Christmas, special birthdays or other occasions.

We have tons of experience and plenty of patience to ensure you get a fabulous print. Although the process is quick, the result is a lifetime memory of a very precious moment in time. 

Pottery painted hand and footprints make fantastic Christmas gifts! Please take a look at our Mobile Studio page to invite Tarka Pottery to visit your nursery or antenatal group for this delightful activity.

Select the Adult and Infant ticket on our booking system so we know you’re coming to paint prints with a child and we’ll be ready to help you!

All our paints and glazes are completely non-toxic and washable.

Clay Imprint Hand and Footprints

At Tarka Pottery we love creating memories and our clay impression help you to do just that. You can book in the studio or buy a takeout kit to do at home.

At the studio

Book an individual appointment to create a gorgeous clay imprint of your infant’s hands or feet. You can choose to have one or two imprints onto your clay plaque – we’ll have everything ready and show you how to press your child’s hand or foot into very soft clay.

Takeout Kit

We have a kit if you prefer so that you can create your imprints at home, allowing you to get the impressions when your child is asleep or resting. Full instructions with tips and ideas on how to get the best result will be provided along with three clay plaques so you can practice and choose your favourite when fired.

After you get your hand and footprints, just bring the plaques back to us to finish off and fire for you back at the studio.

Clay Imprint Voucher

You can buy a clay imprint Voucher, which would make for a fabulous gift for new parents so that they can book in when it suits them or pick up a pack to take home.

How to book

The cost is £40 for imprint experience, either in the studio or to takeout, and includes one glazed and fired plaque with one or two imprints on.

The clay plaques will be finished, tidied and bisque fired. We’ll then paint the imprints in a colour of your choice with the Child’s name (and date if you’d like), before glazing and second firing.

This plaque looks fabulous freestanding or we can mount your fired plaque in a white frame for an additional £15/single hand or footprint or £25/larger double printed plaque.
