Took 7 year old niece here for her birthday and had a great time! The fact you do not have to clean up the mess is great! Very calm and relaxing thing to do, and the kids love making their own pottery

Finally stopped in here with my granddaughter, who is a budding artist, to paint some ceramics. Great exposure to painting on clay, and something that isn't electronic! Highly recommended.

Great selection and option to choose from. The only negative is that is tends to be very expensive, even for a child to paint. Make sure when you look at the price you also add the firing price (which is smaller in the corner).

Off the bat, I'll say their prices seem on the higher side. Other than that, though, they offer a huge variety of pottery options to paint--kitchen stuff, piggy banks, wall hanging, figurines, letters, vases, etc... Bottom level can be rented for parties that are permitted...More
