About Village Ceramics
Charlotte Harris founded Village Ceramics after leaving college in 1997. She had been an active hobby ceramicist for a couple of years before but decided that rather than work for someone else she would set up her own business doing what she enjoyed doing most. Due to the success, Village Ceramics are now offering franchise opportunities all across the UK

As a Village Ceramics Franchisee you can offer many fun services including children’s birthday parties, an extensive precious print range (babies/toddlers hand and foot prints) ranging from clay imprints, 3D casts, Silver fingerprint Jewellery to painted hands and feet on plates, mugs, bowls etc.

Business Support
As a franchisee, you will generally receive valuable, ongoing business support, including site selection, training, marketing, new technology and more.

Franchisors will assist you in developing a business plan, in learning the best ways to hire and manage personnel, and in how to profitably manage your facility. Everyone working for Village Ceramics is an important player on the team.


Village Ceramics is the leader in the contemporary ceramics industry. Each location is an Ceramic painting and Arts & Crafts studio offering unfinished ceramics and other craft media. Customers enter a relaxing environment, choose one of over 2500 unfinished pieces, and spend an hour or two painting it to express their own vision. Ceramic pieces are left to be glazed and fired, then picked up later or painted in acrylics to take home the same day, or there is decopatch or mosaics.

Charlotte Harris say’s “Village Cermics is addressing the industry’s concerns that this is a fad and that it’s an easy business to enter. Our focus is on long-term stability through product diversification, proprietary innovations, centralized marketing, and operating systems that are difficult and expensive for other studio’s to replicate.”

Village Ceramics unique concept offers the franchise owner a business that requires low start-up capital, is fun to operate, is difficult to compete against, and that makes a worthwhile contribution to the community. Even after factoring in the 10% royalty,  Village Ceramics franchise owners enjoy a lower cost of goods sold and lower studio operating expenses than independent studio operators average.
