I love crafts - it's one of my favorite things to do! I'm not always the most creative from scratch - but if I see some ideas - I can make something fun. I came across Let's Go Doodlin ceramic & glass studio and it was RIGHT up my alley!
Let's Go Doodlin is on Beechmont at 5 Mile (right by the Outback Steakhouse). It's a cute little shop in a strip mall and they're open every day but Monday.
The selection of pottery pieces is huge! They have letters, mugs, plates, figurines, picture frames, bowls and everything else you can probably think of. Here's a link to their finished project gallery to give you more ideas. They also have finished projects around the studio to give you ideas to jump start the creative process.
Jen chose a plate and I chose a mason jar - each were around $14 - then our painting fee of $7 each - the cost would have been $20 each for our projects. (Let's Go Doodlin provided these projects & fees to us free of charge in exchange for this post.)
I painted the piece with a light blue speckled background and then drew my daisies on top. Once that was done - I started painting the design!
The staff was very helpful as well - they have suggestions & tips along with any help you need in making your idea come to life.
I also decided to sign my mug on the bottom - #shocker. hahaha
The studio is very cute - they have two rooms and you can have parties there as well.
Thanks again to Let's Go Doodlin for the projects - we had a great time and the staff was very friendly. It's also great for kids - the folks that came in while we were there had little kids that were doing Easter pieces and they were having a blast. So it's fun for all ages! Once Larry saw my jar - he said he wanted to go and do a project! So it looks like we'll be back.
Have you been to a paint-your-own pottery studio? What did you make?
