Popolo Ceramico is the fastest growing, multi-award winning, mobile personalised ceramics business in the UK that specialise in capturing baby and children’s hand and footprints in paint, clay and plaster. We also capture paw prints, host pop-up paint-your-own events, ceramic parties, school workshops and much more.

Imagine having your own successful creative business that allowed you to work your own hours, take leave for ALL of the school holidays (if you wanted to) as well as providing you with a great income?

If this sounds like the career for you, then a Popolo Ceramico franchise could be the perfect solution. We are extremely passionate about creating and delivering great prints, high quality ceramics and stylish products and the franchise network are trained to the same high standard.

We are a mobile business; therefore we mainly work flexibly from home and capture prints at a variety of baby and toddler groups and classes throughout the year.

We are looking for hard working, organised, creative people to join the fastest growing personalised ceramics franchise in the UK.


During lockdown, we provided paint-your-own pottery takeaway kits, which were extremely popular and is a service we continue to offer.

“I started my franchise just before we went into lockdown. As a new franchise, I was unsure how popular the ceramic takeaway boxes would be with me being a new business, however once I started advertising, I’d booked 18 boxes within my first week!” Marie (Popolo Ceramico Brighton & Hove)

“I have been running my franchise for nearly 3 years now and I absolutely love it! I have young children and it’s great being able to take them to school and pick them up everyday as well as being able to work around them at home. I was previously a teacher and love being creative, so it’s great that I great that I get to use my skills in this job too.” (Popolo Ceramico Chichester & Arun)
