I have been to several local studios and recently went to Ceramics Bayou for a party. Am I glad I discovered it. Of the paint your own pottery studios I've been to, they have the best selection and best pricing in town. They have a private party room (which is something not all the stores have) and the service was outstanding. The employees were fun and helpful, and always there when we needed something. One of my friends said that they used to charge an hourly studio fee, but it's a flat rate now and very affordable. I'll never go anywhere else again.
PROS: Pricing, service, selection, atmosphere
