This summer, I decided to treat the kids to a trip to the Pottery Place. We have been there before to paint ceramic pieces, attend a Girl Scout event, and attend birthday parties.
The Pottery Place is located in Albany, NY in Stuyvesant Plaza, which is a nice shopping plaza located near the end of the Northway.
You start by choosing an item you would like to paint. There is an entire wall of items to choose from, ranging from small to large pieces. They also carry seasonal items.
Once you have chosen a piece, you let an employee know. You fill out a card with your information including your start and end time. You are charged a fee for studio time in addition to the cost of the piece that you paint.
The first step once you get your piece is to gently wipe it down with a damp sponge.
Once you have wiped down the piece you are going to paint, you can get your supplies. There are all kinds of tools, from brushes to tape and tubes for writing things and sponges to paint with.
You pick out several colors to use in your project, and can refill as needed.
My kids always have a good time working on their projects when they go to The Pottery Place.
Once you are done with your piece, you leave it at the Pottery Place for them to fire it. You can pick it up at a later date.
The Pottery Place is a nice place to paint some ceramics and have fun, and my kids always enjoy going. It can be pricey depending on your piece and how long you stay, but it makes for a nice treat.
