Pottery Painting

Come enjoy a fun pottery painting session! 

In our pottery painting “café,” you’ll get to paint lovely ceramic pieces while sipping complimentary coffee or wine (depending on the time slot you sign up for). No experience necessary! Come and enjoy a creative outing where you’ll make something cherished for years to come!

Here’s how it works:

  • First, sign up for your painting ticket here like you were signing up for one of our other classes (1 ticket per person). Times can be found here, and pots are $35+.
  • Arrive for the day and time you sign up for to our new unit at the front of @designworxwilmington (it’s blue!)
  • Grab a complimentary bottled latte or glass of wine and settle in your seat with your unpainted pieces.
  • Select your glaze colors + any “add-ons” and get painting!
  • Once finished, wait approximately 1-2 week(s) for your pottery pieces to come out of their final kiln firing.

Additional Information:

Your creations will be ready for pickup from the studio approximately two weeks from the workshop date. You should receive a pickup email when they're finished, but if it is eaten by filters, please come by the studio two weeks after the class date check on your pots. Any pottery left at the studio three months after the workshop date will be donated, so please pick up your work in time!

YOU MUST SIGN YOUR POTTERY. Bookworm Pottery & Co. is not liable for lost pieces that are unsigned and mistakenly claimed by another student.

Not all pieces are guaranteed to make it out of the kiln if instructions are not followed. Improper glaze application can cause cracks or even shattering in the firing process. However, the goal is to just have fun, so don’t stress about it! If your piece breaks in the kiln, you will be given a makeup painting session.

Tickets cannot be refunded, prorated or exchanged for another workshop due to the special nature of our offerings and very limited enrollment.

We occasionally have walk-in painting hours between 1pm-4pm on weekdays (see a staff member in our main studio room to get started). These times do not include drinks since we won't have a headcount in advance. If you are looking to book a private painting party, please see more information here.
