Peak District Crafts & Gifts - Sticky Fingers - Ashbourne

    Situated in historic Ashbourne, Sticky Fingers is a wonderful environment in which to spend time. Come in and browse through our selection of designer gifts, create a masterpiece of your own, or simply grab a coffee and a homemade cake...

    Ceramic Painting.
    With one of the largest selections of pots in the country, a range of 25 colours, 3-D bumpy paints and shaped sponges we are able to cater for most needs. Whether you are a solo painter passing by or a party of forty we are pleased to help.

    Unlike many others, we don’t charge a studio fee; the price on the pot includes all paints, glaze and firing.  You do not need to pre-book to paint in our studio but we advise that you reserve a table at busier times such as weekends and school holidays to avoid disappointment.

    We are the only craft studio in Derbyshire to offer ‘decopatch’.  This is a very simple craft technique that has fantastic results!  The craft is suitable for children and adults alike and is great for parties.

    The activity involves covering papier-mâché, wooden or pottery items with gorgeous patterned tissue paper.  Simply tear the paper, apply glue and stick onto the shape.  It sounds easy and it is, but the results are wonderful.  Create a patchwork effect by mixing paper designs, cover an animal with its own print, or make a giraffe look like a zebra.  Take a look at Decko our metre-long gecko for inspiration!  Our range of letters is very popular for adorning bedroom walls and doors.

    For something a little different why not come to the studio and make a mosaic?  We have a selection of blank items available to decorate: coasters, mirrors, hearts, stars, etc.  With our every expanding range of coloured glass tiles, glass nuggets, beads and millefiori we are sure you will create something beautiful.

    Children's Parties
    We have two lovely party rooms available for your craft party, the largest of which will seat up to twenty four guests.  For parties of over ten guests you will have exclusive use of a party room.  We will also provide invitations, a dedicated member of staff to oversee your party, offer decorating tips and advice and provide an individually designed personalised commemorative plate decorated by all the party guests. 

    Why not complete your Sticky Fingers craft party with our lovely traditional party food?  Our homemade sandwiches, ice cream and cup cakes are sure to delight your guests.

    Gift Shop
    We have searched the length and breadth of our island to bring you the best of homemade, British-design.  Many of our suppliers are new companies or local to Derbyshire.  We have also gone further afield to find fairtrade companies that supply us with ethically made goods.  Focusing on natural materials, country style and quirky designs we are sure you will find something to tempt you.

    We also have an expanding range of personalised gifts on offer, including our own range of bespoke pottery for you to order.

    Visit our fairtrade café for a cup of freshly brewed coffee, a steaming hot chocolate or revive yourself with a refreshing pot of tea. 

    If you are feeling hungry sample a slice of one of our homemade cakes, all baked on the premises.

    All our food is prepared to order using local ingredients where possible.
