Paint Your Own Pottery!


Make memories.
Make fun.
Make stuff.

No appointment needed. Walk-ins welcome!

Come paint with us! Our beautiful paint your own pottery studio is now open! Located at 2712 6th Ave in Tacoma, WA, this is the perfect place to bring your favorite people for some quality artistic time. Or, if you prefer to fly solo, that works too. Open paint hours are from 11am to 6pm, Tuesday through Saturday, and from 11am-4pm on Sundays.

Our huge assortment of pieces range from $5-$35 and contain some super unique and fun items! From shot glasses and tumblers to hedgehogs and faceted giraffes – we’ve got lots to choose from. Our inventory changes frequently, so stop in often to see the new items we have prepared for you!

How it Works:

CHOOSE YOUR PIECE. Our pieces range from $5-35 each, and there are so many to choose from! Cute figurines, soap dishes and bowls, and the more unique items like growlers and shot glasses – there’s something for everyone.

DETERMINE YOUR DESIGN. We can help you plan your design or show you some finished pieces for inspiration, or you can let your artistic side take over and go your own way. We have tools available to sketch your design on your bisque or tape off areas that you don’t want painted to accomplish your goals.

GET TO PAINTING! Select your glaze colors and paint! All of our glazes are food, dishwasher, and heat safe and are non-toxic and machine washable. If you make a mistake, use your wet towel to wipe it off and try again! You can also layer lighter colors on top of darker (or the other way around) to correct any errors.

THIS IS ART – THIS IS FUN – THIS IS AWESOME! This is an artistic process that can be very therapeutic. In fact, it’s the only time Mrs. Soap & Clay stops talking and moving and lets her mind rest. Order food in from one of the many amazing eateries on The Ave or bring your own – settle in for some right brain fun.

PRICING. Pottery + Studio Time = TOTAL PRICE. Your total price is determined by the price of the pottery plus the time you spend in the studio. We charge $5 per hour per painter with a max rate of $15 per person. This is useful for complicated designs that will take several hours to complete. Sign up for our Preferred Sudsers program which will give you free studio time all day!

Private Parties, Birthdays, and more!

Interested in a private party? We’ve got you covered! Great for birthdays, ladies nights, group family activities, teambuilding, realtor events, bachelorette parties and more – our studio is the perfect place to gather.

We have semi-private space with a sideboard for all of your goodies, or call ahead to reserve the main painting rooms for large parties. Wine available for special events, upon request, or bring your own food and drinks! Our space is large enough to host groups of 20.
