Painting pottery can be creative and social fun for everyone – perfect for creative time alone, fun for families, friends and groups. From the fun to functional we have a great pottery selection to choose from and there is something for all ages.
At Happy Potter you are painting with pottery glazes. Finished projects will be food safe and our glazes are all non-toxic. No previous experience required, our friendly staff will show you how!
STEP 1 - PICK A PIECE OF POTTERY
There’s so much to choose from at Happy Potter! We carry all sorts of pottery designs, and new shapes arrive regularly. Whether you’re looking for a mug, dinner plate, a vase, a fairy, or a shark, we’ve got all sizes and shapes of pottery to paint.
When you’ve picked out your piece, one of our staff will explain how the paints work and you can get started on your masterpiece.
STEP 2 - CHOOSE YOUR COLORS
We have over 50 non-toxic, bright colors to choose from, and our large tile colour samples show you what each color will look like with 1, or 3 coats, once it’s fired in the kiln. All our colors are compatible with each other, so you can mix and match.
Try our designer liners to create intricate designs or write personal messages on your piece.
STEP 3 - SIT DOWN TO PAINT
It’s best to plan at least 1-1.5 hours for your painting experience. Paint at home or make a reservation and enjoy our bright relaxing space as you listen to happy music and create with others.
Brushes and pottery water bowls are on the tables.
STEP 4 - FIRE EM' UP
When you’re finished, we’ll give you a timeframe for pickup. We’ll then dip your masterpiece in a clear glaze, fire it in our kiln, and have it ready for you to enjoy!
Our firing schedule varies from day to day, and it generally takes 1-2 weeks before your piece is ready for pickup.When your pottery comes out of the kiln, it will be completely food safe.
