We have gone here during our last 3-4 beach trips and had tons of fun. Kids can paint their own pottery and the pottery is usually ready for pickup within a few days. We did mosaics for the first time last year and those turned out very cool too. Definitely recommend.

We usually vacation in the Outer Banks, and studio 12 is penciled in for a day every time! Kids love it, and us adults find it very relaxing. Great owners, great experience :) such an awesome idea :)

My family had the best time ever at studio 12. They spent time painting their own mugs demonstrating their creativity. I did my very own mossiac; we discovered so much hidden talent. I also found some beautiful pieces to purchase.

Three ladies in our group went here to paint some pottery last week. They had a ball, they said. They brought home a piece they painted, and lasting memories of time spent together. While I got more time to fish without feeling like I was ignoring my wife. I call that a win - win situation. Check it out, I... More

This was our second year coming to Studio 12 to make a mosaic as a family memento of our trip to OBX, and both times have been wonderful! The staff is friendly and helpful, and the activity itself is so much fun. I also love the small things you can paint and the beach inspired projects, like the lighthouse we... More

Had a fun day painting items with my husband, who claims he's not artistic. Really friendly staff and easy projects to work on. Reasonable prices. Would be great to do on a rainy day, but we had great weather all week and still came here. Were able to pick up our items within a day, but we also came during... More

There are beautiful pieces of artwork that you can purchase, or you can sign-uo for a class and create your own beach memory. I love the glass bowls.
