How it Works
Color Café is delighted to invite you to our pretty pastel studio located in Hyde Park Johannesburg! We are very easy to find and there is plenty of parking right out front.
Start by choosing a plain bisque item.
You don’t need to be an artist, choose a brush..
..and a design you like..
..and create something special and unique.
Bring along your spouse, and children if you have them, or come alone if you are in need of some quiet time by yourself. Begin by choosing a piece of raw ceramic to paint, or choose your mosaic item instead. We supply the paint, stencils, mosaic tiles and anything else you may need to create your masterpiece. A qualified staff member is always on hand to guide you through the creative process.
While you are hard at work enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with us, you are also welcome to bring along your own food or party decorations based on your requirements.
We set up and clean up, all the hassle is taken off your shoulders, so you can sit back, relax and be creative!
Once your ceramic item is completed leave it with us to glaze and fire in the kiln, or if it’s a mosaic item we do the grouting for you. Your items will be ready for collection after roughly 4 weeks. Please call and check they are ready before coming to collect.
We will hold on to your completed, glazed and shiny items for a period of 6 months. If the shelves are at breaking point by then we remove the older, finished pieces and donate them to charity, where they are gratefully received.
We like to choose different charities and share the love around. The faces on the children are priceless.
Of course first prize is to have finished items go into the homes they were painted for, so please remember to come back to Color Café about 4 weeks after finishing your unique piece and collect it from us. Give us a call and check your piece is ready before coming through.
Tip: we recommend you take a photo of your item before leaving it with us for firing or grouting. This way we know the date it came in and what it looks like – this really helps us to find it again when it is ready for collection.
Our pricing structure encourages you to take your time during our regular trading hours and get into the groove – no hourly rate means no clock watching so no rush.
We offer you an ALL INCLUSIVE package at the studio! This means that the price of your chosen item includes all the materials you may need to complete your masterpiece. Glazing, firing, the use of the paints, stencils, mosaics and anything else you may require are all included! Stay as long as you like OR take your time over a few days to finish your artwork.. We keep your unfinished items for 6 months.
Ceramic items range in price from as little as R35 up to R500 for larger items.
Mosaic pieces vary in price according to size and detail, prices range from about R65 and larger items up to R480.
Come in and see our wide selections of items, we continue to get in new stock to make it interesting for you every time you come back.
