Maybe it's just personal preference, I don't know, but I'll go to duck before here. Coffee is better here though.

We discovered this place several years ago and gave it a try. It was very fun for everyone in our group, kids and adults alike.

Great to get a coffee and let your little artist paint a masterpiece! We go every year and ship the items home. It is 7$ for kids to paint plus the cost of pottery. Kids and adults can also paint canvas or make stained glass if you want to do something different. Hours of fun! I would recommend going on... More

To enter this place, you need to go through the coffee shop which may be confusing for first-time visitors. When you enter, you are greeted by a friendly helper who explains the procedure. First, you pick your piece of pottery to paint, you choose 5 colors and the staff will bring the paint to you along with a cup of... More

For several years we have made this our first stop in the Outer Banks. We arrive very early on Saturday, and look forward to creating our annual project from Glazin' Go-Nuts. It is a very relaxing activity after a day and a half travel from home to OBX. By making our project on Saturday, it will be glazed and ready... More

Overall a good experience, kids loved it (6, 11yr old). Prices are avg for pottery (out of a few unique designs, unfortunately) but biggest downfall was a fee of $7 per child to paint on top of the piece you actually paint. Never when painting pottery have we encountered this and honestly it was alarming esp. for both children.

The whole family had hours of fun with glass fusion. Our two girls took time with their designs and we got some great advice and ideas to help improve their wind chime me and tile projects. Overall, we took one afternoon and one morning, and the glass was fused ready for collection the next day . Having a great bean... More

Something unique to do at the beach. Just as any other place like this you pay for time, the piece and here extra paints (.50) the fees are standard and help cover the staff helping with keeping studio clean and the kiln. Anyway besides the prices the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The smells from next door are a... More

Made the trip up from the lower outter banks. It was dead and nobody there other than one employee working the coffee bar. The pottery selection was a letdown and geared to children.
