Splat n Splodge has launched in the Parade Shopping Centre in St Mary’s Place and is the brainchild of Kelly Wood who saw a gap in the market for the venture.

The studio allows children – or adults – to choose a piece of pottery, ranging from a tile to a teapot, and decorate it in a range of colours. The item is then glazed and fired by Kelly and then collected later by the customer.

“It is really good fun and there has been a great response to the new studio already,” said Kelly,
She opted for voluntary redundancy from Shropshire Council last year and decided to launch the business after going on holiday to Cumbria.

“I took my children to a similar shop and we really enjoyed ourselves – I thought it would be a good idea to open one in Shrewsbury as there is nothing like it in the town,” said the former crèche leader.

“I worked with young children for a decade and have always loved anything involving craft and creativity so thought this was a great way of combining the two interests,” she explains.

Kelly hosts children’s parties at Splat and Splodge and is also going to start craft sessions at the venue for people interested in crochet, sewing and embroidery.
