Our Story


Our studio has been in business since January 1998. We opened as part of a franchise company and then in October 2007, we left the franchise and became an independent studio. Hence, The Pottery Place was born. In September 2009, we added Silver Clay Jewelry Making to our product line. This has given our customers the opportunity to create their own pure silver works of art. Additionally, as you’ll discover while browsing our website, we offer many different programs, classes and events throughout the year.

We also offer weekly specials that you can take advantage of:

Tuesdays are 2 for 1 Studio Fee Day!  That means 2 people can paint for the price of 1 Studio Fee.

Thursdays we offer our Artrageous Techniques. From 6 pm to 9 pm you can come in and try some cool techniques, such as painting with Bubbles, Alcohol, Yarn, Crumbles or Shaving Cream. There is an additional $5 fee per piece for those techniques. We also have a flat Studio Fee of $10 from 6 pm to 9 pm on Thursday Nights.
