Doug, owner of the business, was there to walk us through the steps before we even picked out our colors, which I am eternally grateful for because I had no idea what I was doing. The Clayroom is definitely first-time friendly. The basic process: paint three times, dry after each layer of paint. According to Doug, dark colors can go over light colors, but not vice-versa, and you REALLY need to glob on that paint!While the experience would have been fun regardless, Katie and I had actually stumbled into the Clayroom just in time for Wine and Cheese night. At a cost of $30 a person, we got a piece of our choosing to paint, a studio fee, tons of food, and of course – WINE! I didn’t drink, because I wanted to concentrate on my artistic abilities, but I will definitely be back for the next one, now that I know I am a pottery painting savant. I can’t sing the praises of this experience more – so if you’re a 20-something girl looking for something interesting to do in the middle of the week, GO to the Clayroom. Meet Doug. Have him make fun of your artistic abilities for a few hours and come home with a new plate. It’s worth it! The Clayroom
