This winter has been horrible – especially February!! That’s why I am always looking for fun and different things to do in doors to get my son out of the house. This way, he isn’t sitting in front of the TV all day. While browsing on line, I came across this amazing place called Crock A Doodle!
Crock A Doodle is a pottery painting studio that’s great for all ages. What’s great about this place is that you can just drop in anytime- no reservations required.
Once you arrive, you head over to the pottery shelf to pick a piece of pottery of your choice. All the pieces have the prices marked on the bottom, so you know how much the item costs before hand. Pieces range from $6 and up, so it’s perfect for all budgets.
One thing I liked, is that they have some examples beside each piece. This gives you an idea as to which colours to use, what would look good, and also what the finish product will look like, once it’s glazed & kiln-fired.
My son is still obsessed with sharks, so once he saw they had a shark I knew that was the one he would choose.
After your have chosen your piece, you sit down at your table and pick your paint palette. You can choose up to 6 colours from their Funstrokes- fleckles or simplicity glazes. The Fleckles paint is pretty neat as it leaves little “fleckles” on your pottery piece.
Once you have finished painting your piece, you add your child’s name and date on the bottom and leave it to be professionally glazed & kiln-fired. Then, they take down your contact information and once it’s ready for pick up they give you a call.
Does your child have a birthday coming up? If so, Crock A Doodle also hosts birthday parties in a private room located in the studio or they can come to you!
They also have ladies nights and corporate events as well!
