At Crankpots Ceramic Studio, fledgling artisans personalize pre-sculpted ceramic pieces with handprints, footprints, and a vibrant palette of paints. Located in Edmonton's historical Old Strathcona district, the intimate studio boasts an array of ready-to-paint bisques, including mugs, piggy banks, and decorative plates. Post-painting, the pieces are glazed and fired on-site by a breathy dragon. Pint-sized Picassos can celebrate their birthday with painting parties at Crankpots. For adults, the studio—which is open seven days a week—also hosts bridal showers, office parties, and singles nights for lonely statues.
