Good for a rainy day!

Good activity for a rainy day or when you want to get out of the sun! A lot of pieces to choose from and an enjoyable activity. Not cheap but not too expensive.

Great for older kids and adults. Unique option to make decorated glass. Takes a few days to fire though, so plan to pick up later in the week or they can ship it to you. Plan to spend a couple hours there. They are connected to a cute coffee shop, so you can make a long afternoon out of it.

If I could give less than a one rating, I would. There was absolutely no guidance here. We walked in (4 of us) on a Thursday afternoon. After standing around for about 15 minutes, we finally found someone that worked there. She looked to be about 12 years old. She only told us to pick out what we wanted to... More

Although grownups can and do come in quite frequently, most groups have young kid in them. You come here to paint your own pottery and the fire in the kilns to cure the clay and the glaze. I've done it with my grandchildren and it is a lot of fun.

Decent prices although it was the first pottery paint studio I've had to pay a "studio fee" in. Super helpful staff. Lots of items to choose from. Next time I will try out the glass studio. Painted on a Sunday, picked them up on the following Friday.

Perfect activity for a rainy day. They had a nice selection for such a small place, we had 5 kids with us and they all found something to paint, and the coffee shop next door has great coffee and cookies!

Sales people very nice; chocolates delicious! Chocolate covered macadamia nuts were wonderful as were the peanut butter and chocolate covered walnuts. Samples provided.

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

Thanks for reviewing us! However, I think you have us mixed up--with another Donut Chain? We are an art studio with Paint your own Pottery, Glass fusing, and Canvas Painting. More

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. It can tend to get pretty pricey pretty quickly, but we enjoy it very much. It is now a tradition, we come back every year. Be careful going on a rainy day because it can... More

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
