A great crafty cafe in Rockingham where you can enjoy coffee and art.

Lately I’ve been trying to encourage my toddler to get a bit more artsy, so I took her along to Mug 'N Brush Café in Rockingham to see if this would ignite some sort of love of painting.

Mug 'N Brush is an art café in which kids and adults alike can have a go at ceramic painting while enjoying a bite to eat or cup of coffee.

Upon arrival we sat down at a table and told the lady we would like to try some painting. She briefly explained how it works before another lady came over and explained things in more detail. All you need to do is pick a ceramic item to paint and off you go. There is a wall of things to choose from and each item is arranged by price - $16, $26 or $36, which includes all paints, brushes and smock use for the kids.



I chose a basic mug for my toddler – there were lots of interesting things to paint, including cars, animals, reptiles, dinosaurs, plates, bowls and so many but I decided to play it safe. Once the item is painted, it is ‘fired’ in a kiln and comes out with a lovely gloss finish and takes around 4 to 7 working days.



When we started painting my daughter was enjoying herself, but the distraction of the rest of the cafe soon set in and she was off exploring. They have a kids play area for children aged three and under, so she spent most of her time in there. Oh well, I thought – might as well enjoy the moment. A happy toddler and a sleeping infant – better get to work!



My coffee arrived with a little biscuit and it certainly was delicious. The café sells hot and cold beverages, cakes, muffins and a range of snacks and small meals. I found the painting quite therapeutic and relaxing, despite trying to keep one eye on a two year old at all times.

My daughter would drift back and forth from the table, adding a splodge of paint here and there before finding some new little adventure. You can take as long as you like to finish, and once done, just let the staff know and they will do the rest. They told me they would let me know when the mug was ready, although I did have to chase this up as almost two weeks had passed and I hadn’t heard, but that was only a minor hiccup.



If you’re looking for a unique birthday party idea, Mug 'N Brush hold children’s parties, along with art classes for children and adults. While these have to be booked in advance, you don’t have to book for general painting. You don’t even have to do any painting – just sit back with a coffee if you like!

I’m sure that one day when my daughter is a bit older, she will be pleading with me to take her to Mug 'N Brush Café to do some painting, but for now she’s happy exploring the world in her own little way.
