A few of the girls from work decided to take the fairy house class and we loved it! The instructor was very friendly and helpful. We all have different artistic abilities (mine being nonexistent) but all of the houses turned out great. I would defiantly recommend this class to everyone. Since I am a local, I have already signed up... More

While Antoinette specializes in her own handmade beautiful pottery, she has a great selection from other local artists in various mediums. She helped me find some beautiful greeting cards with exquisite local photography. She offers a great and varied selection and is very knowledgeable about the art and artists she showcases. Give them a visit when you're in town!

It's a great place to stop and shop. They have the coolest stuff - pottery, paintings, jewelry, cast iron figurines, and more. They also offer classes through the week for different mediums (painting, pottery, quilling). It's a must stop for any shopper looking for something unique.

When you vacation in Avon, you have got to visit the store and sign up for a clay class during the week. We had a wonderful time with the gals at class and a few weeks later, my art was shipped to me after they painted and glazed my bowl. What a wonderful souvenir of our vacation!! That's not the...

Took a bowl making class with a group of friends and it great all-around experience. We used slab clay and each one of us made unique designs on their bowls with big selection of tools provided. Fun to see what everybody came up with and I love my bowl! Went back and took a fish making class. Maybe more fun... More
