Let out your inner artist at this Anderson-based pottery studio. Read on to learn more about the easy process that lets you explore your creativity while enjoying time with friends and family.
For nearly two decades, Doodlin’ Pottery Studio has been offering guests the opportunity to create their own piece of art. The studio hosts classes, parties for both kids and adults, custom pottery, and even pottery to help you showcase your love for the Queen City.
Opened in 2000, Doodlin’ Pottery Studio has been helping local families create artwork and memories through parties, group events, family gatherings, or just hanging out with friends, says Owner Jacqueline Johnson. “Walk in anytime we are open, or call to reserve a group event. We have experienced artists who are here to help you create a masterpiece to have for years to come,” she adds.
According to Johnson, the best part about Doodlin’ Pottery Studio is that you don’t have to be a professional artist to create a masterpiece to keep for years to come. Whether you’re creating a customized gift or something for yourself, choose from a variety of fun and functional pottery pieces, all you have to do is pick the colors you want to use and design your piece.
“Doodlin’ Pottery has all the tools you need, including experienced artists who are there to help you from start to finish,” explains Johnson. “And you can stay as long as you’d like until your work is complete.”
Once you finish your piece, Doodlin’ Pottery Studio applies the glaze and fires it in the kiln to complete your work of art.
You can also purchase ready-made pottery, Johnson says. In fact, she adds, about 70 percent of their pottery is made in the store. She says that it not only helps to keep prices down, but contributes to the local economy and is a better alternative to buying pottery from foreign manufacturers.
“We learned how to hand-build and slip cast pottery many years ago in art school and are proud to offer our community handmade ceramics using techniques that have been around for thousands of years,” adds Johnson. “Our nearly 500 plaster, slip cast molds allow us to make unique pieces of pottery that are difficult or are unavailable to purchase from other manufacturers.”
If you’re interested in hosting a private party at Doodlin’ Pottery Studio, there’s a space for that. The room can be booked for a night, stress-free night for guests of all ages. It can be for the kids, an organization, business, ladies night out, or even a bridal shower.
Other types of parties that can be hosted at Doodlin’ Pottery Studio include Scout events, baby showers, family reunions, bachelorette parties, team building, assisted living activity trips, and preschool/daycare activities.
Custom pottery pieces are also available from Doodlin’ Pottery Studio, says Johnson. “Painting your own pottery is not your think but still want an artistic ceramic piece for yourself or to give as a gift? We love painting pottery and can create a one-of-a-kind piece for your needs,” says Johnson. “Our talented artists have done just that for many happy customers. Be inspired, and let us create what you are looking for.”
Doodlin Pottery Studio is located at Five Mile Center at 7707 Five Mile Road in Cincinnati.
