OVERVIEW RAINBOWS Pottery Studio was built from Love. The hope of the studio was to become a place for artists- of all ages- to explore the vast, boundless world of art. RAINBOWS is open daily from 11-6 and is happy to extend the hours for ladies’ nights, date night and any other reason to have a good time! We serve from 0-110 in age and we hope to relay art is a great way to relax. You can bring your own beer or wine and laugh amongst friends while creating.
