Crafting your way into someone's cupboard is the craftiest way into their heart: for $15, you get $30 toward pottery painting and glass fusing at Studio 6 Pottery. The cozy studio in Ocoee welcomes all ages and experience levels.
Studio 6's cheerful pottery palace is a great place to get friends together for a small ceramics gathering, ceramics rave, or first ceramics date rave. For basic pottery painting, start by selecting any mug, plate, vase, cookie jar, piggy bank, or other artifact from Studio 6's collection of hundreds of paint-ready ceramics. Next, surf your most creative brain waves to come up with a game-changing design, sketch it out with pencil, and select your glaze colors. Studio 6 has more than 35 vibrant, non-toxic hues to choose from, and all are microwave, dishwasher, and food safe. If you don't know how to paint or only know how to paint the Venus of Urbino on a divan made of butter, the friendly staff can help you draw a stegosaurus. Once your artwork satisfies your ocular intake, the professionals at Studio 6 will apply a clear glaze and give your piece a final firing in the kiln. You can pick up your fired and finished piece one week after your studio visit. This Groupon can also be used toward glass fusing, which involves arranging and layering colorful glass bits to create flat, decorative pieces of art that are also fired in a kiln.
Studio time is $6 per person and includes all painting supplies, glazing, and the firing service, and ceramics are priced per item. The price of paintable ceramic pieces varies, but most items cost between $14 and $24. Schedule your visit to Studio 6 in advance (recommended for groups of eight or more) or just stop in on a creative whim. Kids love learning crafts, so get multiple Groupons and make it a family affair, or let loose with paint-slinging thrills on a girls’ night out or all-ages bachelor party. Pottery painters 21 years or older are welcome to bring along some beer or wine to imbibe while working.
Six Insider Pagers give Studio 6 a perfect five stars. The Southwest Orlando Bulletin awarded it Best Venue for a Child's Birthday, and Studio 6 was featured in Playground magazine's spring 2010 issue:
- Studio 6 Pottery hosts the “Paint Me a Story” class, which combines reading with art. First, story time. Afterward (with imaginations running wild), they’ll paint something relative to the tale. – Playground
- I went with my two granddaughters to paint something for their mother for Mother's Day…With my minimal art skills and having two children help, I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but sure enough, when I picked up the piece it was adorable and of course their mother loved it. – Shirley J., Insider Pages
