About Paint-Your-Own Pottery Workshops

paint your own pottery stencils inspire create designer liner tips tricks kiln fire handmade design

Pick a piece of unfinished pottery and allow the little artist in you come alive! We have everything you need - stencils, brushes, stamps, silk screens and more - to fuel your creativity and inspire unique design ideas. The possibilities are endless!

You will start each workshop by selecting an unfinished piece of ceramic pottery, then you'll plan the perfect design and paint your piece to perfection. Once painted, and if time permits, you will finish off your projects by applying a special clear glaze to get them ready for firing in the kiln. 

Each workshop begins with an optional "tips, tricks, and techniques" exercise.* Using a blank tile as your canvas, we’ll focus on one or two decorating methods to help inspire your designs, and get you warmed up before completing your selected pottery piece. 

Hand-painted pottery is not recommended for use in the microwave or dishwasher. We recommend you handwash and care for your pottery as you would any fine hand-painted pottery.

Workshop prices are based on the cost of the selected piece of pottery plus $5 for the "tips, tricks, and techniques" exercise which covers the costs of materials used.
