What the heck is a clay cafe?
I thought you just ate and drank coffee in cafes!
Am I missing something here?
NOPE, A clay cafe is where you can go to and learn about decorating pottery and ceramics or if you already know how to, it is just a place that you can go and socialize while you are be creative.

Pottery and ceramic cafes and pottery and ceramic studios are sometimes known as clay cafes.
They offer an exciting and rewarding business opportunity for someone with a little entrepreneurial and or artistic flare.
Pottery and ceramic cafes provide a unique experience for creative minds, young or old.
They are usually located in arts, craft and hobby centers, town and village streets, garden centers and even places of interest like museums.
You pay for your bisque pottery or ceramic, paints, glazes or any other decorations you want to put on your piece and the firing of your piece.

There are people there that will help you with any problem you may have or instruct you on how to get the finish that you want.

Under glaze, the color and design of your choice and a glaze is painted on to an item of pottery or ceramic and it is left for the ceramic café proprietor to fire in a kiln.
Pottery and ceramic cafes usually keep a wide range of bisque pottery and ceramic pieces from plates, cups and bowls to animals, figurines and other ornaments.
Walk in pottery painters, children’s parties, pottery and ceramic workshops and seminars, finished goods and a cup of coffee are on the business menu.

Some pottery and ceramic cafes offer make and take painting sessions using decorative acrylic paints and shimmers painted on bisque that do not have to be fired.
One nice thing about these cafes is you don't have to finish your pottery or ceramic in one day, you can leave it there and come back and finish it the next day or however many days it takes you to finish it.
The nice thing about it is you don't have to pack up and drag your piece back and forth till you get it done.

This is a nice way to make gifts and make friends!!!!

There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone's life.

Have you ever come up with a good idea while working with your handmade pottery and thought that you would like to share it with others? You have? Well, why not send it to us and we will add it to the tips page for all to see.

Handmade pottery can be a very gratifying hobby that produces fun and satisfying results. For many people it's an enjoyable release that is created by working an inanimate mound of clay into a beautiful work of art that you made through your artistic abilities.

The best way of starting out is to take a few lessons from Youtube. You will probably waste quite a bit in materials when you first get started. Figuring out how to truly make handmade pottery correctly and shape into what you want it to be can be quite an ordeal. The different tools that a normal shop will have can be fun to try. You will soon see which ones you like to use the most and then when you are ready you will know which ones to buy.

With the help of the internet, you can now purchase most if not all of your ceramic and pottery tools and supplies online. We are located far from any well supplied dealers and yet working with reliable ceramic and pottery suppliers online has allowed us to recieve most of our orders within a timely manner.

When you get all set up, just enjoy the hobby and have fun at it. Some people get pretty serious and start selling their creations at craft fairs and small stores, but others just like to create items for themselves, relatives, and friends. Whichever kind of handmade pottery you desire to endeavor, enjoy the hobby and have fun doing it.
