Crafts and Coffees Await in Chester

Known for its professional family photography, Chester’s Pictura Studios also offers a chance for local and visiting artists to get creative.

Tables can be booked at the café, allowing guests to enjoy a couple of hours getting arty with cake and a cup of tea or coffee. Ideal for those of all ages and skill levels, the café extends a warm welcome to all seeking to hone their skills or just enjoy fun with the family.

Creative folks can choose from a wider range of activities or even take part in a course. There are pottery items like kitchenware and garden ornaments to be glazed, painted and toasted in the on-site kiln, or acrylic and poster painting on authentic stretched canvas.

Those looking for a more modern medium to work with can have a crack at creating foam clay masterpieces or tackling a craft kit. There are plenty of options available to choose from, including 3D wooden puzzles, mosaics, needle felting and crystal art, although more conventional options like colouring and sketching are also available.

A haunt of Chester’s aspiring artists, the café serves a selection of coffees, teas, and cakes, so even those who aren’t feeling creative can drop by for a catchup with other who share their interests. From arty teas flavoured with peach and passion fruit to barista-style coffees of all kinds, café guests will be spoilt for choice.

Pictura Studios Creative Café is located at 5 Eastgate Row North in Chester
