All Fired Up! is this wonderful place in Winter Park, FL, and I'm sure you've got something similar near you. You go in and pick out an already made pottery piece that has a price on the bottom. The price includes everything including all the paints you use and firing the piece at the end. They tell you all about the paints and how to use the brushes, sponges, and stencils. They even have these pens that make it easy for writing. Once you're done, you turn in your painted pieces to get fired and they're ready for pick up within a week.
I kept it simple and not too fancy with the pottery piece and all the paints. I didn't need to make anything, but my friend and I went because we had a Groupon where we only had to pay 50%. I decided to make a mug for my classroom, which will probably be used to hold pencils and pens on my desk.
I love the end result!! I have to say it was so much fun making, decorating, and using my creativeness. The best thing was the atmosphere! There were people of all ages creating something. I loved these lovely, old women who sat near us with their wine. They were happy and merry, just enjoying each other's company. I highly recommend if you're in Central Florida (near Orlando) to go to All Fired Up! for a wonderful experience.
