Pottery Painting

Come in, sit back, and create a delightful masterpiece



Choose the piece of pottery that you would like to paint. We have over 700 different items to choose from including cups, plates, bowls, useful household/kitchen items and a great range of fun kids pieces.



Decide on the design. We have painted exmples all around the studio plus stencils, stamps and idea books.



Select your paint. We have over 50 colors to choose from and we do not limit you to the number of colors you may use. We also have some specialty glazes, which can be purchased separately, if you are looking for something even more unique.



Paint your piece, relax and let life’s pressures disappear for a while. We do not charge an hourly studio fee so take as much time as you like.



Leave your piece with us and we will overglaze it and fire it in our kilns. This will make it food, microwave and dishwasher safe.



A week later come back and pick up your finished masterpiece. The pick up times may vary dependent on how busy the studios have been. Pick up information is always displayed on the front counter in each studio at time of checkout.

Make it in Clay!

AFU is now offering hand building from wet clay!

We have several project samples to choose from, including stamped or carved plaques, ornaments, clay critters, vases, pots, and hand or footprint impressions. AFU team members will give you basic instruction and design tools to get you started.
Cost is $30 per project which includes one pound of clay, use of tools, paint, bisque firing, and glaze firing.
Extra clay may be purchased for $10/pound.
You will make and paint your clay project the same day. We will then fire it for you to come back and pick up approximately 2 weeks later.
Come in any time to get your hands in the mud and play in the clay!

All parties include:

  • Food and drinks, including cake are welcome.
  • You may bring party decorations.

Our parties include a party host to help with your celebration. For pottery painting, your party host will explain how the paints work and offer help as needed. If you choose a clay party, your host will get you set up and explain how to work with clay. The group will then create their projects on their own with our staff on hand to answer any questions and help along the way. Once the art is finished, your host will assist in clearing the table for cake or snacks and drink. You may open gifts if time permits. We will then clean everything up! Choose from one of our options below and book your celebration at AFU!
We charge a refundable deposit of $25 at time of booking for all party bookings and studio reservations. This deposit is non refundable if cancellation is within 48 hours of the event. Please call the relevant studio to make all cancellations.
