Please accompany your children at Firefly, unless they are booked onto a supervised workshop or are aged 14 or over. 


We reserve the right to ask you to leave Firefly at any point if we deem your behaviour to be aggressive or offensive towards us or other customers. We are welcoming to all and ask that all are respected and shown due consideration

Gift vouchers

Gift vouchers last for a period of 6 months from purchase, apart from Clay Experience Course vouchers which last for 1 year. 

Please book events in in good time as our events are popular and can be booked up well in advance. We will not provide time extensions to vouchers for any other reason than extended closure on our part.

Food and drink

Firefly offers hot and cold drinks and cake. Please do not bring your own food or drink unless it has been agreed in advance as an option; when this is the case please remove your waste.

Firing issues

Firing issues are part of ceramics and there are a wide range of  causes.  If there is an issue with your pot within the paint-your-own firing schedule you can expect an offer to repaint or be refunded. 

In the case of firing clay to bisque there are more elements out of our direct control therefore you run the risks of firing failures with us and we do not refund.
