Paint Your Own Pottery

Paint Your Own Pottery at The Workspace

Choose from over 100 different bisque items, from functional kitchenware like mugs, bowls and plates, to decorative items like garden gnomes and dinosaurs.  

The process is easy:choose your piece, paint it, and then we will fire it within a week for you to come pick up. 

Studio fee is $4 for ISU and $5 for public plus the cost of the bisque you select. PYOP is open to all ages as long as those 15 and under are accompanied by an adult.

Walk-in anytime during open hours for Paint Your Own Pottery.  Or, join us on Friday evenings between 4 & 8pm for theme nights. Pre-registration is not required for Friday theme nights.

Need an activity for your student organization, office staff or a girls' night out?  Contact Letitia Kenemer for group reservations.

Summer 2019 Theme Nights

June 7 Message Mugs Add a covert message at the bottom of a cup! Put it inside to discover when your coffee is gone, or outside to share with an office mate. Add your personal message from a sweet “I love you” to a clever note that “This may contain poison.” 

June 14 Gnome Gnight From three-inch inch minis to a foot-tall “Ginormagnome,” we’ve got a cast of characters that are fun to decorate and add to your space.

June 21 Succulents Paint pots for your succulents or use our handy tutorials to draw cacti and other plants on any bisque you choose. A variety of succulents will be available for purchase.

June 28 Two for One Studio Fees Grab a friend!

July 12 Color in the Lines Just like a coloring book, these pieces have line drawings ready for filling in and they are super-cute! Llamas, sloths, unicorns and more on mugs and plates.

July 19 Bubble Painting Blow bubbles on your bisque with a straw and paint, and bursting outlines will appear on your finished piece.

July 26 Ice Cream Social Eating straight out of the carton? Let’s decorate a bowl that holds your late-night treat. Free ice cream while it lasts!
