Anybody else love RAINBOWS?!?

I can't help it. I am OBSESSED with all the colors of the rainbow!
Guess it makes sense as I own a paint-your-own-pottery studio.

Anyway, I wanted to share a quick picture or two of some of the colorful updates to the shop.
 Check out these rainbow colored curtains. I totally hate clutter, but in order to have lots of new bisque for you to paint I have to store boxes of stuff someplace. So, under the tables it goes.

And, wait! Christmas ornaments?!?!? Yep! Year round. Come paint something for the holidays!

New Owners. New Website. New Location. Same AMAZING Place.

If you haven't been to The Pottery Room in a while, you may not know about a few exciting changes.
First of all, my husband and I are the proud new owners of The Pottery Room! For us, this is a long-time dream come true.

I have been a customer here for years, a seasonal employee, and now I am thrilled to have the chance to own and operate a business that I adore. I also teach fifth grade science at Pisgah Elementary School, so during the school year you will see less of me during the day and more of my silly husband.

Speaking of which, my husband (Lamar) is currently finishing up his degree in business and is the brains, the entertainment and the "muscle" behind The Pottery Room when I can't be there. He's a regular riot, so make sure you get in to meet him.

Now if you're worried about this change, don't be.
Brenda is still around. She LOVES this place! She will still be involved in many of our special events. Deborah, Amanda and Stephanie are here on a day-to-day basis and Lara is still available to teach wheel classes on the weekends. We have loved The Pottery Room for years and don't plan to flip it upside down and shake everything out. We want you to feel comfortable and at home here just as we do.

We are starting a new website...this one.
Some things are simpler to start fresh than try to assume what was already in place. I'm hoping that you'll find this to be a helpful source of information and visit frequently.
We are at a new location.
Well, sort of.
We are no longer located in two separate stores (Trenton Road and Madison Street).
By combining both stores into one larger location, we have been able to provide additional classes, longer hours, more options for painting, and extra space! If you haven't been to our new location off Needmore and Wilma Rudolph, stop in soon!

We are branching out onto social media.
Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram for frequent updates and many, many pictures of things going on at The Pottery Room! We can get messages in both places, so feel free to start up a chat!
Longer hours.
We are now open Tuesday-Thursday 11am-7pm and Friday and Saturday 11am-8pm. We even have Sunday hours 1pm-5pm. We are closed on Mondays to catch up on glazing, firing, and stocking the shelves.

There have been a few cosmetic changes. Reorganizing and decorating - because I kinda love that stuff. So stop in and paint something soon!
