Years ago when I lived on my own for the first time, I found the cutest little ceramic studio on the artsy side of the mountain where you can paint ready formed pottery pieces and the studio fires them for you.
Fabulous creativity spending bohemian style evenings with bunches of creatives painting and creating my own design style kitchenware, and it is something I want to do again!
Things are less complicated now with specialty stencils, dishwasher safe materials to paint with, an internet full of inspiration and local shopkeepers that will gladly kiln your project you can work on at home!
What did I make?.... a set of square sushi plates before sushi was a thing, a decorative platter, a cookie jar, and a set of counter canisters.
