Paint Your Own Pottery Events

No creative or artistic ability is required to create a great gift or make something for yourself. All supplies are included, and since you paint here, we’ll do the clean-up, too! Fun for all ages (children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times).

In order to enforce COVID-19 distancing, and to make sure we have enough inventory, each person painting must preregister (see links below.) Painters ages 0-11 must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants will paint items during the scheduled event time, then leave them with the vendor. Splatters will glaze and fire your pieces offsite and then return them to the Recreation Center. You will be contacted when your item is ready.

Groups of 2-8 people living within the same household can sit together at the same table. Each table will be distanced to follow CDC guidelines. Masks are required at all times for everyone 10 years old and up.

Summer Events

Full inventory available! Go to Splatters to register, select items, and schedule your session.
