About Us – The Doodle Pots Team
Doodle Pots is a family run business that was started by Caroline and Dennis. All of the Doodle family have been involved in the business, from helping to run the studio, to shop redesign and sample painting! Doodle Pots also supports three other local families through full-time and part-time employment.
Caroline worked as a studio assistant whilst at University.
The previous owner of Doodle Pots presented the opportunity to take on the shop, & Caroline jumped at the chance!
Caroline is currently on part-time maternity leave with Doodle Baby Willow! But you will still see her in the studio most weeks.
Normally she manages the shop day to day, helps create special keepsakes using hand and footprints and occasionally gets to paint!
The Dad of the Doodle Pots family.
Dennis helps out in the background (doing the boring bits, like accounting!) and generally does a lot of running around!
The Mum of the Doodle Pots family.
Jill is often helping out at the studio to bring new ideas and paint some of the items for retail.
Jill is behind our obsession with fingerprints
(we love creating things from these colourful little marks!)
Our studio manager, who runs the shop day-to-day, takes baby prints and does the majority of our beautiful artwork. She is also our Glaze Goddess at the moment and is a mean kiln Tetris player!
Charlie is a pro at getting little ones to open their hands for our baby print pottery. She also talks fluent “baby”, a skill we all develop at some stage.
Our lovely part-time studio assistants are always on hand to help out and provide advice on how to tackle your pot.
They are super friendly and pro painters.
Haili is a very very talented painter and has created many beautiful gifts in the studio. She also has a fantastic business, Big Bad Wolf Dog Walking, where she makes many furry friends!
Cat is a local mummy who loves coming to work as a Doodle! She is the friendliest person you will ever meet and is super organised, keeping the studio clean and tidy.
