Clay and creativity swirl together at Claying Around, a paint-your-own-pottery studio recognized as one of the city's most family-friendly spots by readers of the Asheville Citizen-Times. Inside the spacious, brightly lit facility, Claying Around’s friendly staff help visitors piece together mosaics or transform plain pottery into vibrant works of art with more than 60 colors of glaze—all of which are nontoxic and safe to bring into a bubble bath. Arts-and-crafters can sit around brightly colored tables and embellish pieces chosen from shelves upon shelves of unfinished bowls, mugs, and other knickknacks. The shop’s pottery-wheel lessons empower students to create their own bisque items; afterward, staffers glaze and fire finished pieces until they shine.
