Welcome to The Painted Pot!
We are a paint your own pottery and glass fusing studio located in the historic downtown. We carry earthenware (ceramics) that is cleaned, fired, and ready for you to paint! All of our paints and glazes are lead free and non-toxic. Finished pieces are dinnerware safe, so you can create usable art. Paints, brushes, creative supplies, and instruction are included every time you come in. We also have all the glass necessary to create a beautiful piece.
Our customers come in all sizes and ages. Kids are old enough when they can hold a paint brush (we have high chairs) and adults are never too old. No experience with painting or art is necessary because our friendly staff is always here with creative ideas and the tools to make your project a success.
Monday - Thursday 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM

No appointment or reservation needed! Come in any time to create your masterpiece!
Pottery prices vary from $5.00 up to $85.00. Average purchase is $20.00. We are an all inclusive studio. Pottery prices include EVERYTHING!
Gift Certificates are always available.
The Painted Pot is a great place to create unique, personalized gifts for any occasion, including-

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
Steps to creating your masterpiece-
1. Select your piece (many times the hardest part)
2. Select a design using our stencils, stamps, idea books, or your own imagination.
3. Use our huge selection of glazes (paint), brushes, writers, and other tools to make your idea a reality.
4. Leave your finished item with us. We will overglaze and fire it.
5. Pick up your piece 4 days later.
6. Enjoy your reminder of a fun day spent with family or friends.
Wine Canvas @ The Hawthorn - Our first class at The Hawthorn! Paint an awesome set of canvases while sipping wine on the patio and people watching the walking mall. You can choose to paint one of canvases below, both, or bring a date each paint one! Each person must be registered separately because of limited space and if you want to do two canvases yourself, there is a handy add-on selection. Your registration includes one glass of wine from their great tap selection.
Adult Classes - Classes will be Thursday evenings from
6 - 8 PM. Private classes for 8 or more people can be arranged
for any of the designs we have on hand. Click "Book Online"

Grow-Ups (Girls) Night Out! - When you come to GNO, we provide
dinner and you bring your own beverages. Our focus will be on teaching
glass fusing and more difficult painting techniques. This is a night for all
adults - men and women are welcome, but NO KIDS! This year we will be
kicking it up a notch at every event. The price is $15 plus the price of your
project. So grab a friend, and join us for some fun!
