About Us: Firefly (opened in October 2014) is a pottery and pottery cafe in Horsforth, Leeds. You use underglaze to paint anything from our great selection of bisque (pre-made pottery items) with prices ranging from £3.50 upwards. We will fire your item for you and aim to have it ready for you a week later. You can also enjoy creating with clay in our workshops, making pots, jewellery and sculpting and also work on a potters wheel. Please see our Pottery Courses page for more details. We house a selection of visiting crafts including mosaic and seasonal courses.
We have focused on pairing with businesses and individuals from our local community, drawing our workforce of artists, suppliers and products from Yorkshire and wherever possible Horsforth.
Firefly is a warm, welcoming child friendly environment, (we also provide windows of tranquil calm for adults), situated next to a sweet shop and opposite a library on a vibrant stretch of shops and restaurants which has two hour parking bays along it’s length and car parks in easy walking. The train station and airport are also just a skip and hop away. We house a pram park behind the studio and all staff are DBS/CRB checked.
Our Standard opening hours are Wednesday to Friday 10 – 5pm and Saturday and Sunday 10 – 4pm.
We are available for party bookings throughout the week, we are also available for evening bookings for parties, ladies nights, group gatherings and workshops subject to availability.
In school holidays our opening hours will often extend so please check the Events page to see what we have on, this also list our workshops and evenings.
In the rare case of any breakages (but they are pots after all!) we will offer our apologies and provide either refund or the option to re-do your item.
Not only are we artists, we have also trained as baristas to provide you with a great range of drinks and tasty cakes! Our studio seats 30 through three rooms, each having it’s own unique style. Our beautiful forest room is available to book as a dedicated space for parties, ladies nights and workshops. To avoid any disappointment, especially at weekends and in school holidays we advise you to book.
