The Mud Room Studio is a place to paint (and make!) your-own-pottery. Walk-in to relax, experiment, and express yourself as you create a unique ceramic masterpiece! Choose from our pre-made, always changing selection of decorative and functional pottery pieces to paint or try your hand at creating your own ceramic piece from clay. We have over 80 low-fire colors and specialty glazes to choose from, including our own custom color “Mud Room Mud”, many tools such as stencils, stamps, sponges, writer bottles, carbon paper, internet with printer, design books, and interesting texture tools along with countless finished examples for you to be inspired by or imitate. We offer glaze and clay working classes for novices, kids, serious artists, and specific projects. Our staff is friendly and eager to share tips to make your painting experience pleasant and satisfying. Come back in a few days to pick up your glazed and fired masterpiece.

So feel free to come to The Mud Room with friends, the kiddos, that special someone, or for some quality time by yourself. You will be inspired by your own creativity!
