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.

Choose your Item

Choose a raw ceramic item to paint. We have a great selection to get you started. 

Decide on a Design

We have a huge selection of stencils and books to get you started with your design ideas

Create Something Special

We love seeing what our clients create, every piece is unique and wonderful. 

  • Join us for some quality family time, a gathering of friends or some valuable "me" time

  • We have a large range of items to choose from, whether you are after something useful or a decorative piece

  • We will set up your brushes, palette and water bowl for you

  • Our friendly staff will assist you with whatever you may need

  • We do serve cold drinks (appletiser, juice, coke and BOS ice tea) as well as hot drinks (milo, cappuccino, tea and hot chocolate). Prices range from R12 to R20. We have a few snacks/treats available but you are more than welcome to bring in a little bite.

We set up and clean up.
All the hassle is taken off your shoulders, so you can sit back, relax and be creative!

Collect your Masterpiece

Once your ceramic item is completed leave it with us to glaze and fire in the kiln. Your items will be ready for collection after about 4 weeks. Please call and check they are ready before coming to collect.

Please don't forget to collect your masterpieces!

We will hold on to your completed, glazed and shiny items for a period of 3 months. Any items not collected by them will be removed and donated to charity, where they are gratefully received.

We like to choose different charities and share the love around. The looks on the children's faces are priceless.

Tip: Take a photo of your piece before leaving it with us to be fired. This way we know when it came in and what it looks like - really helps us to find it again when ready for collection.


We charge an “all inclusive rate”, which means that the price of the item you choose to paint includes all your materials as well as the firing and glazing of your ceramic.

Loads of stencils available. No previous experience needed at all.

  • Beautiful concept, the reception from staff is sometimes frosty

  • Lovely activity place. You need at least 3hours for the painting and socialising. It can be very busy
