Mission Statement

Island Studio’s mission is to help our guests and friends have fun by exploring their creativity. Since 2004, Island Studio has offered ceramics (paint your own pottery) and art classes and now offers a variety of craft kits that are shipped nationwide.

We have explored various art mediums over the years, including fiber arts, and are excited to offer some new and reimagined options for our guests.

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 items are designed for indoor use.
