Families brushed up on their art skills this week with a visit to the pottery painting cafe.
Youngsters of all ages enjoyed having a go painting pieces of traditional pottery at The Old Chapel, in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster.
Designs ranged from unicorns, princesses and wizards, which visitors left to be glazed.
Volunteer Kerry Jones said the day was a great half-term highlight.
She said: “It was really successful.
“At one point, 14 families were queueing to take part, we couldn’t believe how popular it was!
“Now we just have to do all the glazing.
