Glazed in Clemson is a paint-your-own pottery studio, perfect for the creative child in your life. Shelves of perfect party pottery can be chosen from and painted by your child and his or her friends. Painters chose their colors and let their inner artists free during the party. It does take about a week before pottery is ready to go home, but that just means you can party all over again as you find friends to give them their creations.

For older children or an adult party, Glazed also offers canvas painting classes that are BYOB (bring your own beverage), the perfect way to celebrate and remember a wonderful birthday person. Learn more at
