Take home kits and window serivce rules...
Jun 2020
Still a safe, great way to spend some quality family time. Take home kits worked out well. We did miss painting in your studio but thought the take home kits were a perfect way to stay well and still paint our traditional dinner plates. We use them all year long and paint new ones every year! Makes dinner fun! Thanks

Great for kids on a rainy day
Jun 2019 • Family
While on vacation we had a couple of rainy days. My family went here and picked out and painted pottery. It was a hit! A little expensive but other than that, very enjoyable experience.

Entertaining, But Serious Endeavor
May 2019 • Friends
This is usually an annual family affair for us, but Studio 12 did not open until after Easter, so some of the family missed the adventure. The pieces can be a little pricey, but if care is taken they can turn into a wonderful reminder of your trip to the Outer Banks. You are given unlimited time to work on your piece and I have never felt rushed to finish. The price includes unlimited paint (specialty paint is more), stencils, brushes, advice, and firing. There is a coffee/smoothie bar and small gift shop attached to the painting room. You must pay for the item before you leave it with Studio 12 for firing and then come back later to pick it up. Be sure to do your painting early enough in the week, so it will be ready for your departure especially if you are only staying for one week. It is better for older children and adults, but even children can have fun making a small memento of their visit.

Awesome place! So much fun!
Jul 2017 • Couples
We've visted Studio12 with my husband during our kiteboarding trip to OBX, we are getting fed up with sunbathing after few hours, so painting pottery was great alternative for non windy day! It's such a relaxing activity:) We also grabbed an organic smoothie from the coffee shop- super tasty! We definitely will be back next year! ❤️

Great time
Aug 2017 • Family
We have stopped here twice now during our vacation over the past two years. We took our twin 10 year old son in for a painting of pottery and they had a great time. The staff is great and a perfect place to spend an hour or two on a rainy day.

Bring home a permanent memory made by you!
Aug 2017 • Family
So much to choose from for families to do and everyone had a blast. We painted animals and bowls and also did a mosaic. The staff is friendly and helpful and it's a nice relaxed atmosphere. We noticed we were not the only table of painters happily singing along to the music they played. The studio is bright and colourful and fun to look at all the artwork, both samples of painted pottery and art from local artists. Lots of art for the walls, as well as beautiful jewellery. They also have lotion and soaps and fun gifts for the kids. Loved that we could purchase a coffee and smoothies at the shop next door. Will come again!!

Everyone had fun!
Aug 2017 • Family
We have seven kids from 2-11, and they all had a great time. The staff is both helpful, and friendly. We all did the pottery painting, but they had glass mosaics that looked fun, as well. Hopefully, we will return next year!

Addicted to the smoothies

Amazing smoothies & coffee drinks! The greenocoloda & health nut are my current faves. I attended a paint class with friends & had so much fun! They have so many options to let your creative spirit shine. Always friendly service!

I purchased an item from the store, but I also ran into an enthusiastic group of people just finishing up their fun art activity. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. Store is filled with wonderful creations.

Very enjoyable!

We had a great time at Studio 12. They had a large selection of items to paint, and were super helpful. Our items were ready for us to take home 3-4 days later.
