My daughters and I visited Studio 12 late this summer and loved the shop! They have a nice variety of locally made items in addition to their own beautiful pottery and glass. The workshop space looked so inviting. We are planning to come back next summer to paint some pottery! The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable.

They offer walk in space to paint & decorate your own designs on preformed pottery, that is beautifully made and always turns out beautifully , even the 'masterpieces' I viewed... More

We love this place! Me, my husband, and my 11 year old and 14 year old sons. Made visits during two vacations now, and it's always great. The owners are SO nice and helpful, and did I mention talented? The artwork they have on display for sale is amazing, most of which they themselves have done. Even if you think... More

My 8 year old and I went over for a mom/daughter morning of arts and crafts. Calm setting and good for a variety from the beach. We painted pottery and there was a good variety of items to choose from. The only bummer of the visit was prices were described as inclusive of the process. When I got to the... More

We have been coming to Avon for the past 5 years. We have been painting at Studio 12 for the past 2 yrs with our children. It is such a relaxing and wonderful studio that helps you find your inner creativity. The Staff is extremely helpful and personable. I wish we lived closer because we would be in that studio... More

Unfortunately, we never actually got to paint. We were proactive in calling to see if they were busy, and to see if we could reserve a table. We were told, "Yes, but not over the phone." We must "come in in person" and give them our number to call for a table." So, it takes over 30 minutes to drive... More

Carolyn S, Owner at Studio 12, responded to this review

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Customer service is very important to us and we apologize that you did not receive better care over the phone. Busy rainy days often do not put us at our best and four rainy days in a row have been taxing on us to say the least. But in any event it... More

My husband and 3 teenage daughters had a fantastic time. 2 of us are not one bit artistic, but loved every minute of it. The owners and staff are so helpful! Two of us painted pottery and the other 3 did mosaics. Everyone has a wonderful keepsake of our time at the Outer Banks. We will definitely return to Studio... More

My sister, 2 daughters,2 daughter-in-laws, and myself, took the glass bowl class. We had a great time. Carolyn was very good at teaching us. She made it fun and easy. We have already told our friends about it. Hopefully we will be able to return next year. Thanks for a wonderful time.

We took three young girls(3, 5, and 10)and created mosaics. They all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and created beautiful mosaics. Responsibly priced and fun activity!
