The paint-your-own pottery sessions at The Pottery Stop in Fulton are going strong, according to Carla Ferguson, who, along with Maegan Supple, shares the management of the shop in Fulton and its flagship site in Ellicott City.

While the Fulton location doesn’t have a café like its sister store on Route 40, it does have a quirky charm and a bucolic view of the cows at Maple Lawn Farms. More importantly, it also offers workshops on painting techniques and silver clay jewelry-making for both kids and adults.

“It’s a way to spend time with family and friends, relax and do something creative. Then you come back later and have something that you can use or give as a gift,” says Ferguson. “It’s a reminder of the afternoon that you spent with your daughter or your friend.”

Pottery prices range from $4 to $60 plus a studio fee equal to half the price of the selected piece. The shop glazes and fires the painted piece to be ready for pickup in one week. Clay stamps and idea books also are available to use in the shop.

Open Wednesday to Friday, 1 to 7 p.m., Saturday, noon to 7 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.

The Pottery Stop, 11821 Scaggsville Road, Fulton. 301-317-9936. thepotterystop.com
