We charge $20 per hour for pottery painting your group, (not per person) which includes free USPS shipping OR delivery to Stone Harbor and Avalon in a few weeks.

Your fired pottery will generally ship to you in a week or two at no additional charge to one address. You will pay your bill in the studio on the day of your appointment. There is usually a limit of 2 hours maximum for an appointment. This activity is great for almost any age.

We require a credit card to hold your reservation. Your card will not be charged unless you fail to attend your appointment. To cancel, kindly notify us no later than 48 hours before your appointment.

Join us in celebrating local Cape May County writers!

Maggie Bud Lee is a local Cape May writer who has published her first children's book on Amazon.

Dive into "The Magic Seashell of Cape May," a heartwarming tale of adventure and discovery, perfect for children ages 6-10. Join Clara, a seven-year-old girl with a vivid imagination and a skeptical heart, as she embarks on a family vacation to the enchanting shores of Cape May, a place she believes holds nothing for her. Feeling overshadowed by her older brother Ryan and longing to spend the summer with her friend, Clara is convinced this summer will be nothing but a bore. However, the Victorian charm of their rental home and the unexpected beauty of Cape May begin to weave their magic around her.

"The Magic Seashell of Cape May" celebrates childhood wonder, the joy of discovery, and the special magic in nature and family bonds. It reminds us that the greatest adventures can sometimes unfold in the most unexpected places. With its enchanting illustrations and captivating narrative, this book is sure to become a cherished addition to any young reader's collection, inspiring them to explore the world around them with open hearts and curious eyes.

Learn more about the author:

"I fell in love with creative writing in college. Something just clicked, and I felt the need to write as a way to open my soul. I am passionate about poetry and writing children's books. I have also explored writing fiction and plays. Perhaps I will expand upon these areas in the future! I feel that creating a book for children has so many exciting possibilities. It is a way for me to connect to my inner child and recall the days of reading as a young girl. I am an avid bookworm and have many books on my TBR pile! I am usually a very creative person who loves the freedom of writing. I hope you enjoy my work!" -Maggie Bud Lee

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.
