No plan, no problem! Open Studio is a great way to get creative at your convenience, at your own pace. Crafters can choose from one of our many DIY activities (described below) and take home a handmade masterpiece. Please check the schedule for Open Studio times, or contact us to make a reservation. Our sitting fee is only $8 per person, per day plus materials.
Open Studio is perfect for playdates, rainy days, celebrating an A on a spelling test, siblings who are in different age groups that want to do something together or to simply craft a gift (even if it's just for yourself).
Stop on in and paint with us! There's no telling what new pieces we have in stock. We have a wide variet of pieces, from coffee mugs, sushi plates and cereal bowls to piggy banks, cupcakes and picture frames!
Step 1: Select a piece of pottery. This is actually the hardest part. We have lots of great pottery to choose from.
Step 2: Choose your colors. If you're new, we'll give you a brief overview of how to layer the paints, where to find your supplies, etc. If you're a veteran, then have at it and get creative! We have lots of technique sheets for you to peruse to get your creative juices flowing. For children, this can take 30 minutes to 1 hour. For adults, painting can take 1-2 hours.
Step 3:After you have finished painting, your painted piece will be dipped in a clear food-safe, lead-free and non-toxic clear glaze giving your pot a clear glossy finish after it has been fired. Pottery is usually ready 4-6 days later.
