Founded in 1996, The Pottery Studio is the original Paint Your Own Pottery establishment in Sonoma County. It provides a congenial, relaxing atmosphere where both kids and adults can spend meaningful time together while creating fun and unique artisanal pieces that can be given as gifts or treasured as mementos of a special occasion.
As the third owner of this studio, I felt the need to continue on with this much-needed community gathering place. It is Low Tech in a High Tech World, a place that provides an opportunity to create . I have a background in both Art and Education and it is here I can combine both. I have always believed in the aspect of art as therapy. It is the perfect thing to put you in the moment, not to bring any pressure to the outcome, but to enjoy the wax on, wax off quality that painting can bring to your day.
We cater to all ages, painting pottery is great for kids parties and adult gatherings. We provide an extensive selection of both decorative and functional pottery items. We have more that 60 colors that are water soluble, safe and environmentally friendly. We also have idea books, stencils, sponges etc. After you paint, we dip the piece in clear glaze and fire it, and it will be ready for you in less than a week.
You provide imagination and open mind. You are welcome to bring coffee or snacks. During evening hours adults can bring wine.
We also host company events, organizational get-togethers, fundraisers and school outings. During the summer we have week-long camps for kids. The Pottery Studio is an active, vibrant place full of positive energy.
We try to make you experience as enjoyable and stress-free as we can, and can accommodate most any needs that you may have. And above all we don't judge or grade any project! Art does not bite. Every piece is valued.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
