Crumbles Ceramic Studio

About Us

Crumbles Ceramic Studio is a family owned studio situated in the lovely Highland Park Shopping Centre on Pakuranga Road.

It is owned and operated by Sandhya Govind, who comes from a design background, with the help of 2 lovely staff members - Norma and Fariha. They are always on hand to guide the children through the whole process and provide heaps of encouragement.

The studio is a little haven where children can come in, relax and be creative! They don’t need to be experienced or have any artistic ability to give it a go. Children of all ages and abilities can paint on our ceramics, with an emphasis placed on creating rather than the final product.

How does it work?

The Studio has been open in Howick for over 6 years now and is well known for hosting awesome birthday parties and other fun events. You can come alone or bring a group. You get shown to your own table, where we give you heaps of encouragement and stay on hand to help you through the whole process. It really is that easy and a lot of fun. Once the pieces are painted, we glaze and fire the piece and return your finished piece to you in approximately 7 – 10 days.

How you help children

Children of all ages and abilities can create beautiful works of ceramic art with our encouragement and guidance. We also have various tools on hand such as stencils, stamps, and 100s of designs that they can transfer on to their piece to paint.

Our after-school sessions run for 8 weeks each term. The kids play with clay, learn funky pottery painting techniques, and try other art mediums. All projects fees and tuition are included in the price, and the kids enjoy getting creative.

Each child is encouraged, inspired, and challenged to improve. The projects are loads of fun.

Your child’s creativity will soar when they take part in our School Holiday Program. Our full day classes are perfect to fight school holiday boredom!

We also have half day programs that run between 11.00 am and 1.30 pm or between 2.00 pm and 4.30 pm.

The kids get to paint 2 pieces (Either a mug or a side plate and an ornamental piece).

There are 3 kids party packages to choose from. When a birthday party is booked for a minimum of 8 children, the group gets exclusive access to the studio for 1.5 to 2 hours. There is a party host to help run your party (sometimes two if your group is large enough) and the birthday child receives a FREE hand-painted plate. You can bring your own food, drinks, and cake.

Physical environment

Crumbles Ceramic Studio is a little haven where people of all ages can come in and relax and be creative. The studio is beautifully fitted out and people love the happy and cheerful atmosphere that hits them as soon as they enter the studio.

We do get busy so to avoid waiting for a table we prefer bookings, however they are not essential, so if you feel the need to paint you can just come on in. We can’t wait to meet you!
