We are a relaxing and fun paint your own pottery studio located in Downtown Oshkosh! We do offer wood sign painting, life casting, camps, and other scheduled events so check our schedule on our website for more information on these offerings. For paint your own pottery you can stop in at any time, no reservations required, and choose a piece to paint (we have over 400 to choose from). Our pricing includes the paint and the firing and ranges from $10-$75, the average child spends $16 and the average adult spends $25. We can show you a variety of techniques and ideas to make your piece a masterpiece. We fire your piece and it will be ready in approximately a week, if it is done early though we can send you a text and let you know it is finished! All dishes are food and drink safe and can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert! These is no age requirements for pottery painting, you can be 1-101 and have fun and we are always capturing baby handprints on platters or mugs. Shipping is also available for out of town guests.
