Bisque & Beyond Family Art Cafe

Located in the heart of Didsbury village, we are a truly independent family owned and run art café offering a wide range of art projects, from paint a pot to decopatch, clay imprints and commissions, belly casts, personalised gifts and beyond!

Our family friendly café offers the best in delicious and locally sourced food and drinks, homemade cakes and bakes and a wide range of refreshing beverages, including made to order smoothies and shakes and even local craft ales. We use our favourite local suppliers, Heart & Graft Coffee Roastery and Trove bakery for their award winning speciality coffees and breads, which I'm sure you'll agree are the tastiest for miles around!

Beneath our art café is our beautifully equipped party and sensory room, set up daily for a wide range of baby sensory classes and children's parties. With fully qualified, DBS checked and 1st aid trained early years practitioners on hand every day to lead the activities and enhance the sensory and party experience, we ensure you get the peace of mind in knowing your children are in safe hands as well as having lots of fun!

How It Works

Pottery painting is such a fun and therapeutic activity regardless of age or ability.... whether it's taking prints of tiny (or big!) hand and footprints, painting a birthday mug for your best friend, a personalised money box or trinket box to hold your special keepsakes, or just enjoying a peaceful afternoon painting. It is fun, relaxing and rewarding and best of all you get a beautiful creation at the end of it!

When you arrive we will show you our extensive range of bisque (unglazed pottery). Once you have chosen what you would like to decorate we will explain the process, the paints and the various techniques and tools you can use. There is a vast selection of paints, all non toxic and washable, along with sponges, brushes and special pens for embellishment and our expert team are always on hand to help with ideas and tips, as well as plenty of pre painted examples to help inspire you and get you started.

All of your decorated items become suitable for everyday use once glazed and fired, so perfect for that cereal bowl or mug of tea!

There is no admission or studio fees, we simply charge you for the price of the item you choose. 

There is a vast array of bisque to select, with our most popular choices including mugs, bowls, plates, animals, trinkets and money boxes in all shapes and sizes. We like to keep the range fresh and up to date by listening to what our customers want and introducing new pieces as they become available, as well as themed pottery throughout the year.

Once your masterpiece is complete then just leave it with us for glazing and firing and it will be ready for collection within 10 days!

Notes

We are particularly proud of our simple menu, using fresh, locally sourced products, as well as Trove sourdough bread for all of our scrumptious toasties, sandwiches and 'seasonal sourdough specials', all of which is served daily from 10am in our friendly and relaxed environment. With our made to order specials, eat in and very popular take out options and homemade cakes and bakes created on site every day, there's something for everyone whether you're looking for a scrumptiously simple brunch, delicious coffee and cake or a lighter bite to go... (we even cater for babies with over sixteen years experience of baby led weaning and feeding fussy toddlers!) See our separate 'little ones' menu for fresh purees, dips and dippables - also available to order for collection when you're short of time at home.

Homemade Cakes made to order:

We do a bespoke selection of our most popular cakes to order in full loaf tins or brownie trays. Perfect for your private event, party or just weekend treats! We just need a day's notice for any cakes you'd like to order and these are then available to pick up from the cafe. (Ask us about our wholesale cake ordering options and delivery if you're a cafe, deli, restaurant or local company looking for regular treats!)
