SANTA POTTERY DELIVERY IS BACK!

Order Paint-Your-Own Pottery ONLINE, and get FREE Home Delivery from SANTA himself!

Santa is super busy this year, but he’s made time in his crazy schedule to do special, socially distanced, HOME DELIVERIES of paint-your-own-pottery from the ZACC — using the super new, super awesome ZACC VAN (it works better than his sleigh to transport breakables). Order take-home PYOP pieces through our online shop from December 1 through December 17, and Santa will deliver your order on Saturday, December 18 or Sunday, December 19. Just specify a date and morning or afternoon at checkout. This might be your only chance to see Santa in person this year, unless you stay up all night on Christmas Eve. Don’t miss out!

HOW IT WORKS

1. Order any Paint-Your-Own Pottery online December 1-17 (or until delivery slots are filled). 

2. Santa will home-deliver your pottery on Saturday, December 18 or Sunday, December 19 (choose a date and morning or afternoon at check-out).

3. Return your pieces to the ZACC by December 21 AT THE LATEST to make sure they are fired and ready to be picked-up by Christmas Eve!

*PLEASE NOTE that Santa can only deliver in the local Missoula area.

ABOUT PAINT YOUR OWN POTTERY

COST: BETWEEN $5 - 75

The Pottery Studio is Missoula's community pottery painting and clay hand building center! Creating and painting pottery is great fun for special occasions or just as a pastime. We have ready-made small figurines for kids and kitchen ware for our older painters. This is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon or a Saturday out with the kids. Get the gang together for a few drinks and laughs and rent the space for a private party! Our Paint Your Own Pottery Studio has hosted employee holiday parties, sororities and fraternities, birthday parties, and family reunions.

ABOUT CLAY HAND BUILDING

COST: $10 AND UP

Hand-building is working with clay using only your hands and simple tools, not the pottery wheel. We provide the clay - we always have soft clay from Archie Bray Clay in Helena, sculpting tools, and simple instruction, and you bring your imagination! This older form of working with pottery creates organic forms that show craftsmanship with their asymmetric beauty.  A few most common forms of creating hand built techniques include pinch-pot, coiling, and slab techniques.
