Founded in 1996, The Pottery Studio is the original Paint Your Own Pottery establishment in Sonoma County. We provide a congenial, relaxing environment 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.
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 offers 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 on the outcome, but to enjoy the wax on, wax off quality that painting can bring to your day.
We strive to make your experience as enjoyable and stress-free as we can, and we can accommodate most any needs you may have. Above all we don't judge or grade any project! Art does not bite. Every piece is valued.
We provide an extensive selection of both decorative and functional
pottery items. We have more than 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 so it's ready for
pick-up within 7 to 10 days.
We also host company events, organizational get-togethers, fundraisers, and school outings.
The Pottery Studio is an active, vibrant place full of positive energy and we
look forward to helping you make the most of your creative time here.
