The studio, which has two other locations (in Carroll Gardens and Bay Ridge), was named "Best Kids' Party Place" in the Nickelodeon's Parents' Picks Awards. You can walk in, grab a pot and paint it, or sit down at a potter's wheel during one of their eight weekly classes and spin your own. Obviously, this place is a parent's dream when it comes to birthday party locations (along with Taro's Origami Studio up the street).
Along with pottery, they also offer handbuilding and sculpture classes, along with supplies for DIY mosaics. The facade isn't finished yet, so there's a temporary front (just like at Noella next door).
The Painted Pot, 72 Seventh Avenue Brooklyn NY 11217.
