Paint Your Own Pottery in Royal Oak
If you’ve heard of Colour Me Mine before and know what it’s about, then you’ll already be familiar with what’s in store for you at Paint Your Own Pottery Crock a Doodle in the deep northwest!
Located in the community of Royal Oak, Paint Your Own Pottery Crock a Doodle offers exactly what its name suggests – a space where you can pick and choose a piece of pottery then sit down and paint it in any way you’d like.
This activity is great for couples looking to make a sentimental piece of pottery together as well as for families looking to create lasting memories with one another. The time you spend picking out pottery, choosing colours and painting the object is a blast from start to finish!
The next time you’re looking for something to do on weekends with the famjam or perhaps with your significant other in northwest Calgary, be sure to find this place and check it out! Here's what you should know about Crock a Doodle...
Where You’ll Find It
How It Works
#1 - Pick a piece of pottery off the shelf (plates, vases, cups, action figures, charm boxes & more)
#2 - Look at the price marked on the bottom; it includes everything so there are no additional fees
#3 - Plan your design with a pencil sketch (pencil comes off once pottery is kiln-fired)
#4 - Or, ask for assistance in planning your design as the shop has a lot of resources to use
#5 - Pick your choice of colours from three categories: funstrokes, fleckles and simplicity glazes
#6 - Time to doodle away and paint your pottery – the sky is the limit!
#7 - Once completed, leave your masterpiece at the shop to be professionally glazed and kiln-fired
