$12 for $25 Worth of Paint-Your-Own Pottery and Ceramics
The studio supplies paint and glazes for adding custom decorations to a choice of more than 500 pieces, such as figurines ($6–$30), banks ($8–$23), and mugs ($10–$18). Typically, the finishing process for glazed plaster or ceramic pieces takes about 30 minutes. Kiln-fired ceramic pieces undergo a finishing process that takes one to two weeks.
The art connoisseurs at Creative Hands guide patrons of all ages through the artistic process with a cache of ready-to-paint plaster and ceramic items. Equipped with provided paints and glazes, budding Picassos can transform bare figurines, plates, bowls, and goblets into masterpieces as personalized as the Mona Lisa's thumbprint. Guests can tote away freshly decorated plaster pieces after a 30- to 45-minute glazing-and-drying process or enlist the warming powers of a kiln to seal in a ceramic creation's luster and then pick up the fired work of art a week later. Creative Hands' roomy studio fosters a suitable space for large groups or birthday parties and houses a ladies' night on the first and third Thursday of every month.
