Discover Your Artistic Side at These Pottery Shops Around Chandler

If you're looking for an activity that's fun and relaxing, head to a shop where you can paint your own pottery. You can put your creative touch on everything from charming animals to serving platters. When you're ready to paint, head to one of these pottery shops near our Chandler apartments:

As You Wish Pottery

When As You Wish Pottery opened in Scottsdale in 1995, it was one of the country's first paint-your-own-pottery studios. Its mission is to bring people together to build lasting memories. Their friendly team will help bring out your creativity and provide everything you need to paint one-of-a-kind projects. Your piece will be ready for pickup in three days (those with acrylic paints can go home on the same day). Reservations are highly recommended.

Painting Wonderland

Bring out your inner Picasso at Painting Wonderland. It features a range of paint-your-own pottery designs, from fun to functional. You can decorate any way you'd like, and the shop supplies paint, brushes, stencils, as well as other tools. You can also create with acrylic paint to take your piece home on the same day - perfect for figurines and detailed work. Any items used for serving food will need to be fired in the kiln and are usually ready for pick within seven days.

Burst of Butterflies

Family-owned, Burst of Butterflies offers a fun setting where you can enjoy pottery painting fun. You can select from a range of shapes, starting at five dollars. Choices include mugs, plates, and figurines. With new pieces arriving twice monthly, you'll always find something to discover. What's more, your finished piece will be food safe. Be sure and arrive at least one hour before closing to have time to complete your project.
