Get Creative & Paint Ceramics At Color Café


There is nothing more relaxing than getting creative and doing some ceramic painting.

And if this sounds like the perfect activity for you and your friends, then look no further than Color Café at Hyde Square Shopping Centre in Hyde Park. 

How Does It Work?

The whole concept around Color Café is to let your creative juices flow and create something special! Ceramic painting isn’t only relaxing and fun, but it also offers an outlet for your creativity. Best of all, all you have to do is just enjoy the crafting experience with your loved ones, as Color Café will do all the setting up before and cleaning up after for you.

And to ensure that you and your party/fellow crafters are replenished during your art session, the Color Café does serve cold drinks as well as hot beverages to keep you hydrated. As for nibbles, there are a few snacks/treats available for purchase, but you are more than welcome to take along your own bites to eat.

And the cost? Color Café charges an all inclusive rate, which means that the price of the ceramic item you choose to paint includes all your materials, and the firing and glazing of your craft.
