About

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.

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.

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...

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. :)

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...

Q&A

Being able to assist people of all ages to be creative especially when they believe they are not creative at all. I believe we all are in different ways and you just need the space and the right person to help you find your creative streak. Its fun and very relaxing.

I have always been creative with textiles and drawing but followed a career in hotel management. The time came for a change and I found out about pottery painting and craft studios. Loved it so set mine up in 2006, its been fun helping people have an amazing time with something to show for it in the pottery they have painted, created or using other crafts or the bespoke orders I have created for them.

I love to help children and adults have a fun party or visit to our studio or at another venue. I think we all need some chill time to create something unique to be proud of and take great pride in making this happen for all our customers form a few days old to 92 years old!
