Hello I’m Jane Fox and I run and own Fired 4 U. I had a career in hotel Management and my last posting was at the Swallow Hotel, Samlesbury. I left there in March 2006 to set up Fired 4 U. This came about when I read an advert in a magazine for pottery painting parties.
I was looking for a change in work and my husband said I should do this so I blame him for it all happening!
Our Fired 4 U studio welcomes all ages to come and enjoy many ceramic and craft activities, providing you with fun and relaxation all at the same time for Adults and children and it’s a great way to make unique gifts!
The Pottery painting activity is very popular but now we have introduced other crafts our customers are spoilt for choice what to do; Copper enamelling to make jewellery or collages, Foam clay decoration and decoupage paper craft applying colours and patterns to pottery or wooden items. These crafts are completed during your visit so your creations are taken home on the day.
Our birthday parties for adults and children are very popular giving you arty fun time and the finished pottery or copper items remind you of the fun you had. With many packages to choose from for both adults and children you will find one to suit your needs or we can custom make one for you.
Groups are very welcome in the studio we can accommodate up to 40 painters at one sitting. Group rates are offered for this activity.
We are well known for the Baby hand and foot prints clay impressions which we create for you with the help of your little ones cute hands and feet. Such a keepsake is treasured for years to come as you know they grow up so fast!
You can just drop in but in holidays and wet days it’s worth calling ahead to book a table as we do get very busy.
Great experience, lovely staff and fair prices
The kids really love it!!
Jane is very informative and makes you feel relaxed. It is a lovely place to visit. Highly recommended.

A lovely tranquil place where you can let your imagination set free. Fantastic for kids too
Always a friendly reception at Fired 4u. Lots of choice of pottery to paint and colours. Also several activities like enamelling to try. Also loads of inspiration around the workshop. Super relaxing atmosphere. Tried other pottery cafes and none are as inviting or accommodating as Fired 4u. More...
Friendly, helpful owner. Good choice of pre-made pottery to paint and fresh ground coffee too. Parking not too bad, depending how busy the neighbouring hairdresser is.
Brilliant evening spent being creative with helpful advice x
Excellent and very good instructions from a great lady.
Came with an infant to do handprints on a pot, very helpful friendly staff. Whilst there a lady with disabilities attended with her carers. The staff went out of their way to accommodate her. Would definitely recommend. More...

Every time we visit Jane at Fired 4 U, we have a fantastic experience from the moment we step through the door. She greets us like old friends and makes us very welcome. Most recently we visited to make our 5 month old daughters hand and footprints in clay as a wonderful keepsake memory because she is growing up so fast!! Thank you Jane :) xx More...

Very therapeutic too.

I had my 5yr old daughters bday party here in early december 14. I found Jane to be very helpful & easy to deal with. The children had a lovely time decorating the plates. It was a mixed party of boys & girls & i was pleased the boys enjoyed it also. The young lady who gave the instructions was amazing with the children & she kept their attention whilst explaining what to do. We definitely will be returning and i cannt wait to have a go myself!!! Thank you for making Betsys birthday an excellent one. X More...
For my birthday party this year, I decided to take my 7 best friends to Fired 4 U and what a superb choice it was. My best friends were buzzing after the two hour Fired 4 U party Experience.
Jane and her staff were patient, understanding and could not do enough for us, also their enthusiasm was infectious as it rubbed of on everyone
I highly recommend Fired 4U. 10/10
Me? I`m the birthday boy 64 year young Grandad and my best mates are my 7 Grandchildren age 4 to 12 years.
As an aside the chippy next door also does brilliant chips. :) More...

I love this place, so much choice. Jane was really helpful offering lots of help and advice when needed. Great way to spend time with friends. Thank you we will be back.
Just had a lovely morning painting with my mum and daughter. I'm sure people have said this before but the young lady in charge (Abbie I think is her name?) was lovely and an absolute credit to your business! We can't wait for mini potters on 9th November and my mum and I will book on an adult evening soon. Can't believe I've never been before and I've have lived in W-L-D my whole life! Great place!

We've been to fired 4 u on various occasions over the last 2 1/2 years and we have created lots of lovely, unique keepsake gifts, from painted plates, silver necklaces to ornaments. We always have a lovely time. We had our daughter's 10th birthday party here and Jane and her staff always make us feel welcome. Nothing phases Jane, not spilt juice, tenacious ten year olds or potty training toddlers! The Mini Potters sessions and the Adults Only evenings are a great idea too, especially if you feel awkward about disturbing anyone with your kids or don't like being disturbed. Brilliant way to spend a couple of hours being creative. Would highly recommend. More...
Just had my 7 year old's birthday party here and it was the smoothest party ever! The staff are so friendly and great with the kids. They talk the kids through every step and help those who need it. There's a great selection of things to paint and it was so relaxing for all of us! Bonus is you can order kid's meals from the chippy next door and they will bring them round for you! Highly recommend this place! Thank you. More...
Fantastic place, the staff are very helpful & the children love coming.
Jane was lovely and came and did Mugs with our Rainbows and Brownies for Mother's Day. The girls loved doing it and had a fantastic night. I would highly recommend using her. I cant wait to start planning our next trip! More...
Our son had a fabulous birthday party at Fired4u!
Highly recommend this place!
Jane and her team are excellent!
We spent a rainy morning here with my two boys and would recommend it highly! Customer service was great, activities available were varied & prices were reasonable.
I went just me and my 11 month old and had a wonderful experience! Extremely helpful staff and I can't wait to see the finished products!

Had a lovely morning with my girls who would have painted everything in sight if I had let them! Many thanks for a lovely morning x
Had a lovely time with my new little guy. Given lots of help to make his daddy a mug for his first ever Father's Day. Can't wait to collect it! Help was given and the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. Can't wait to go back and make something else. More...
Absolutely fantastic place to go and spend time with little ones being creative, my daughter had a party and everyone loved it! The chippy party dinner from next door was delicious too! � More...
Fabulous party yesterday for my daughters 8th birthday, and how lovely to see her handprint on the wall from her 5th birthday. Great fish and chips from next door too!! Thanks Jane, a great time had by all xx More...

Best place in Lancashire
Fab for children of all ages and adults also... lovely staff. Very pleasant and helpful... Will be visiting again soon
I work here and its a beautiful, friendly environment.
What a great place enjoyed every minute would recommend
It is fun, it's relaxing and nothing is too much trouble for the owner & staff. It's good for all ages & families.
Made a wall clock designed like a unicorn. Great advice and guidance from Jane.
Spent a short time here on Sunday.... Turned out to be 4 hours decorating pottery for Christmas. Prices are reasonable given they will include firing after painting with turnaround about 7 days. Will be back
Friendly service and great fun, however it's extremely expensive for the outcome. Some colours were unavailable when I visited however I doubt it's a regular occurrence.
Great shop with friendly staff. Week with a visit.
Loved it, perfect venue for my girlfriend's 17th birthday party
We had excellent 7th birthday party for our son.staff are very helpful and all children enjoyed the party!
Friendly and helpful staff. Wide range of products available which can be customised for you - kids footprints/handprints, pets paw prints. Check their website for more info
Very good learning place for children
Lovely shop, very helpful staff. Nice and clean and lots of choice.
Been to several events here, good fun and different!
