What is better than creating the perfect gift for someone you’re thankful for? Being able to
unwind in the process. This holiday season, after a long couple of years of increased decision-making and
very little normalcy, a cathartic session of painting your own pottery is a gift you can give yourself. And,
cross a gift for someone else off your shopping list.
Whether you’d rather be led in seasonally themed classes, or left unbothered to paint on your own
in a well-equipped studio space, a handmade gift serves the maker as much as the receiver. Check out
your local PYOP studio for new classes and events that will help you get in the Thanksgiving spirit, (or
the Christmas spirit if you’re ready!).
Classes are not limited to paint-your-own-pottery; Though with brand new seasonal inventory, it
is hardly limited! Many studios offer canvas painting, glass fusing, wheel throwing, and plenty more
artistic endeavors! If no class speaks to you, a classic hand-print turkey can always do the trick for a
keepsake piece.
When thinking about what pieces you may need for your home, a great trick is to envision your
table all set for Thanksgiving – pie platters, plates, napkin holders, decorations, anything you need can be
hand-painted on premium bisque pottery, encasing a memory forever. With family visiting from out of
town, creating a piece together can memorialize your cherished time. A pitcher with everyone’s
handprints for Grandma, or a picture frame to give to someone you can’t always be with; It’s a great time
to show your gratitude for the ones you love.
