Get the most out of your visit the Christmas with this season’s top 10 tips.
You’re more likely to get a table if you arrive when we first open and we only take bookings for large groups or if you’d like help with hand-prints.
2.Plan your visit
Check the opening hours on our website, we are closed on Wednesdays including for collections and remember it’s always last painter 1 hour before closing.
3.Adult Only Evening Sessions
December gets very busy so we’ve planned some adult only painting sessions on November 20th and 27th and December 11th booking only for these.
4.Hand-making gifts with baby
If you would like baby’s hand or footprints on a baubles, mugs, platters etc. please call the cafe to book 0207 732 6688 we may not be able to assist you otherwise if it’s busy.
5.An extra special gift for Nana
This year we’re holding imprint week as it’s better to make these extra-special gifts early but if you missed it, don’t worry you’ve still got time to make one up until December 1st.
6.Don’t be a last minute Annie!
Check out our last dates here but don’t leave it until then as we have limited Christmas stock and once it’s gone it’s gone…
7.Hand-making your gifts
If you are not planning on paint prints or clay imprints and there are less than 6 of you, just drop in. We don’t take bookings for small groups of people who are painting their own ceramics.
We know it’s nigh on impossible to juggle little people and show off your perfect writing so if you’d prefer us to do the tricky bit, then why not have our professional illustrator Nikki Pontin do the hard work with our custom painting service.
9.When’s the best time to come?
If you are planning on coming at the weekend, it’s best to come when we open. The earlier you come the more likely you are to get a table so don’t be a last minute Annie!
If you’d like to do paint prints then we recommend booking ahead on a weekday.
10.Picking up your ceramics
If you have used our Standard 7 day service then we won’t call you, simply pop back 7 days later. At this time of year, please come as close to the 7 days as possible. If it’s a Fast-track item, clay imprint or we’ve done some custom painting for you then wait for a call from us.
We have limited space here at the café and can only hold onto your orders for 6 weeks so if you call in the last week of December expecting to pick up that butterfly that you painted in September, it will not be here.
We look forward to welcoming you here at Punk Me Up and hope you enjoy the Christmas season as much as we do!
