At this time, we are open by appointment with two hours notice. (Example: Want to visit us at 1:00 PM? Book by 11:00 AM.) In the summer, we will be open most days during select hours. You can book an appointment for summer now by booking online. Booking ahead is the best way to secure a table, since our booked guests will have priority seating over our walk-in guests. We hope this makes sense. We look forward to seeing you soon!



There is no STUDIO FEE for pottery painting in the studio for THE FIRST HOUR. You pay only for the cost of the pottery you choose if you finish within one hour of the start of your appointment. Want to paint longer? After your first FREE hour, we charge $20 per hour for your group. Your fired pottery will generally ship to you in a week or two at no additional charge to one address.

Local Guide

My family had a wonderful time creating their pieces of pottery. My grandchildren are 11 years old, 9 years old and 3 years old. They enjoyed all the choices and had trouble choosing one piece but they did! We had a choice of colors and they loved choosing them. The three year old did a lovely mermaid. We were all pleasant surprised, at how carefully she did her piece and how lovely it came out. All the pieces looked beautiful and we will definitely make this a stop for the next time, we visit.

Helpful Tips for Ordering

Be sure to choose the correct option when placing your order, as pricing varies and acrylic pottery painting kits cannot be fired. Paints last a few weeks in the containers we provide, so try to finish painting your project(s) before your paint dries up. Purchasing additional paints is an option. Our pottery items are best for indoor use.
