About The Painted Teapot



My name is Kalpanie (like balcony) and I am the owner of The Painted Teapot.


The Painted Teapot  was founded in November 2018 by Tory who has since moved on to another adventure. TPT was established to bring pottery painting to the heart of Perth.

TPT is a family-run business, based on Rokeby Road in Subiaco & we are committed to providing the best pottery painting experience for you.  

I love sharing ceramic painting with adults, children, individuals & groups - whether you are super arty or a total beginner, I  truly believe it's for everyone! 

It's great to see people come in and lose themselves in the process - time whizzes by as painters become so involved with their pieces! But my favourite part of working at TPT is that Magic Moment when painters collect their finished piece & see it for the first time. Have a look at what others have been saying about our little studio. 

If you'd like to find out more about TPT - and some of those Magic Moments - you can follow us on Instagram or join our Facebook community.

For a sneak peek of life behind the scenes of our Subi studio, you can read my regular blog.

And if you can't resist being the FIRST to find out when all our special events & workshop are, make sure you subscribe to the TPT Newsletter at the bottom of the website. 

We look forward to welcoming you for some pottery painting at TPT soon!

TPT - What People are Saying... 

Word is getting out about our little Subi studio!

We were recently mentioned by PerthNow 

and even got a mention with some Subi greats in the West Australian 

During the Covid crisis, we were kindly supported by our local Federal MP, Celia Hammond.

We were thrilled to be visited by Buggy Buddys  so soon after opening!

Weekend Notes also came for a visit - read about their lovely pottery painting experience here.

Walking into TPT was like a little peaceful sanctuary of creativity. Just a lovely space to have a great, relaxed time with friends...


Such a lovely little business. My 20 month and 4 year old had a great time and the cups they made were great quality.


It's a joy injection!
