Painting pottery is a GREAT way to celebrate a birthday- for children AND adults! It’s affordable, requires little effort on your part and allows for an intimate and FUN setting where guests can enjoy each other and be entertained at the same time! Whether you are planning a birthday party for a group of four or thirty-four, we’re the place for you! Have a theme in mind? We will happily customize your event! (We have a list of some suggested items below!)
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:
1. You tell us what you’d like to paint. We have access to hundreds of items from figurines to dinnerware, home décor and more! ( If you are picking up the tab, we are more than happy to help you preselect items for guests to choose from so you can stay within budget. )
2. You are welcome to bring food, drinks, balloons, party favors etc.
3. Plan to stay from 1 1/2 to 3 hours – we help you determine a time frame based on the ages of painters. Little ones tend to paint more quickly and like to get onto the next fun thing, so they don’t take as long as older children and adults.
4. We will have your glazed and fired pottery ready for you to pick up within a week. We’ll even bag it separately, if you’d like, to make it easy for you to distribute to your guests!
Our per-person party price (for painting plus pottery) begins as low as $15 per person! You determine your cost based on the pottery you select, and we present the guest of honor with a free commemorative dinner plate when your party has 10 or more painters!
Due to limited space and seating, we politely reserve the right to add a charge of $7.00 per person for each non-painting guest attending your party after the first complimentary four.
Private parties for up to 35 guests are available upon request and are required for groups of 25 or more painting and/or non-painting guests. Please call the studio at 813-832-2757 for pricing information.
We politely request a non-refundable deposit of $50.00 which will be credited to your bill at checkout or used as a studio credit if a cancellation is made at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled event.
Note: We are closed on Sundays, but if you are interested in hosting a Pottery Painting Party for at least eight painters on a Sunday we will be more than happy to set you up with all of the materials you need to paint at home at no additional cost to you! Just plan to pick everything up on Saturday and return it within 48 hours. We’ll take care of the rest!

The BUBBLE technique is VERY popular at our Birthday Parties for older children and adults. It’s truly a FUN and foolproof way to create pieces that look like marble! *
Another bubble piece underway! *
Similar to the one pictured above, this shows what a bubbled piece looks like after it has been fired. Of course, the sky is the limit when it comes to color combinations!
This plate was painted using a combination of our bubbling and masking techniques, and it’s soooo easy that a five-year-old can do it!
Our Bahama Mama piece is popular at Birthday Parties for adults. It’s just one of hundreds of pieces we offer!
*Please add $1.50 per item surcharge for Bubble Technique.
