Inside The Mud Room’s cottage-like façade, rows of blank ceramics wait to be slathered in colorful paint and fired in the kiln. During open-studio hours, pairs of mug painters can add personal touches to their morning coffees, inscribing cups with stern warnings to thieving coworkers or daubing pottery with patterns inspired by creative ideas from the studio. After a fiery stint in the kiln, mugs are ready to be picked up by their artistic decorators one week after they’ve been painted. Today’s second option awards artists with five studio visits, which can be shared between friends and family or horded by one person as they attempt to paint ceramic replicas of their friends and family. The punch card is valid toward studio time for glass fusing or pottery painting, however pottery and glass projects must be purchased separately.

The Mud Room

After slinging itself onto the Michigan art scene in 1996, The Mud Room has since spun into a hub of creativity for artists of all ages and artistic experience. Under the direction of the studio's in-house teachers, small groups learn to wield everything from paintbrushes to pottery wheels during studio parties and classes, which teach such skills as fusing colored glass tiles into kaleidoscopic works or hand-forming ceramics to recreate ancient casseroles. Customers can also stop in to paint pre-made ceramics themselves. The pieces come in various shapes and sizes, which patrons can adorn with colored glaze before handing their artwork over to the professionals to be fired and finished. The studio also offers group pottery classes for parties including girls' nights out, birthdays, and kids' celebrations. In keeping with its safety-first approach, The Mud Room features only nontoxic, lead-free products, ensuring the finished pieces are safe to use with food.

Customer Reviews

Helpful staff, a fun place for kids and adults alike! First visit was with a group of adults. We loved that they allowed us to bring drinks and snacks in. Made a great, relaxed night out. Second visit was with a three year prepared to get very messy but have a lot of fun!
