Corning HR team gathers to commemorate their third Houghton Award. 

Whether you are a group of 8 or 40, Paint Your Own Pottery would love to host your event. PYOP will customize your experience to fit your needs.  The whole group can paint the same item (in their own style of course), or guests can select their items individually. 


  • $10 studio fee per participant + price of the item (must be $15-$30)
  • No additional room charge


  • Reservations can be made in shop or over the phone
  • Must be 8 people or more 
  • If your group is less than 8 people you are welcome to make a regular reservation in our shop (no food allowed)


  • Time allotted: 2 hours


  • Reduced prices are available for groups of 20 painters or more. For a reduced fee painters can choose from a limited amount of pottery. Please note if your group drops below 20 people the reduced fee may be waived. 
  • You are welcome to bring food or snacks of your choice, however in accordance with Virginia State law alcohol is prohibited.
  • Events are held at our annex location (walking distance from the main store). We apologize that the annex is not handicap accessible as it is on the second floor with stair only access. 
  • If you hold your event during a weekday and FCPS is not off of school, we may be able to host you in our main store.
  • If you have a large group and we have enough staff members we may be able to travel to your location as well (Team Building only)
  • Firing ceramics takes one week. Generally, the event organizer will pick up all items for distribution.
