We have been coming to the Avon area for many years. My daughter and I look forward to coming to Studio 12 each trip. Their pieces are affordable and the owner is very friendly and knowledgable. A must do for families!

Owners are fantastic - happy to help but also will leave you on your own if you wish. I made a tea mug, my daughter made a dog bow for our pooch and my other daughter made a container for her art brushes. What a way to bring home a truly unique souvenir!

We visited studio 12 twice during our visit. We made plates with our daughters foot prints and coffee mugs. They turned out great! Gary was very helpful and was great with our young kids and large group. This will now be a tradition for our family and a must do when visiting OBX!

We spent an afternoon here painting with our five kids. They had a blast (and so did we). There is a great variety of things to paint, and you can make mosaics or glass fusion jewelry as well. It got a little pricey with all five kids making something, but was well worth it for the great time we had.... More

Admittedly I have never attended a class here however I see people there all the time which speaks well for the place. They do have some pretty jewelery and pottery pieces on display and I always see people practicing their craft. I know the couple who own the place and they are easy going. From the smiles on everyone's faces... More

Even if you are not a crafty person or do not have the time to take in a class stop in! The pottery and jewelry offered for sale by local artist are fantastic! They are reasonable in price, beautifully done and make for wonderful mementos while supporting local folks! The staff was helpful, polite and packaged the items great for... More

My girlfriend found a number of things here worthy of purchasing. A unique sea glass ring, and a hand-painted ornament. We also saw plenty of handmade pottery that was very nice.

We went to OBX for spring break. The weather was too cold to spend the day on the beach and with a 9 year old, we needed to keep busy. This place was AWESOME!!! I was a little skeptical because my artistic ability is little to none but it was NOT a problem. The owner is warm and friendly and... More

A great place to let your inner Picasso out! Make a bracelet... Paint a dish... Buy one of a kind pieces. Spend an afternoon having fun with paint, beads, or whatever strikes your fancy! Great place to make a personalized gift. Nice people run it too.
