"Pottery Painting Showers are easy to do plus the bride or Mom-to-Be receives gifts that last a lifetime." – Brushfire Pottery Studio
This studio can host any number of guests. The cost is a $6 studio fee, per person, plus the price of the pottery piece that is painted (this typically ranges from $6 to $18). The studio can divide the cost of the bride's piece up so that party members (or the party planners) are able to cover her expense. Pottery is then left at the studio to be glazed, fired and is ready for pick up one week after the event.
Brushfire Pottery Studio welcomes you to bring your own food and refreshments and promises to help with cleanup.
Reserve space for the bride's shower at Brushfire Pottery Studio by calling (615) 385-5334. No fee is required, just a name, phone number and expected party size.
