Summer 2020

For everyone’s safety, there will be no in-studio painting all summer and possibly beyond. This is a firm policy based on everything happening on the island. We know it’s different from what you are used to here at Island Studio. My concern is for our health and safety above all else. Many of our customers are ordering TAKE OUT CRAFT KITS to support us this year. Due to the success of our take out kits, we will continue offering them in the future.

Local Stone Harbor + Avalon deliveries

We are happy to deliver your order to your porch, and even pick items up from your porch to be fired after you have painted, since we deliver on the island daily. Fired pottery can be shipped to you or dropped back off on your porch after firing if you’re still here. You can tell us your preference when you check out, we’re all ears!

Now for the FUN STUFF! We’ve loaded this site with answers to your questions. There’s LOTS of helpful information on this page, so READ CAREFULLY!


There are lots of new things to paint for all ages! Watch our virtual tour below:

We offer 6 types of TAKE OUT CRAFT KITS:

  1. Pottery Painting Kits that REQUIRE FIRING - The pottery will be fired and returned to you (washable paint + easiest clean up) - Pottery Kits come with brushes, paint, pottery and directions. Use the brown paper that comes with your order to spread out on your table to protect your work surface. Only use the special paint we give you. Reuse the paper from your delivery to wrap up your dry pottery for return to Island Studio for firing. AFTER PAINTING: Call 609-231-7045 and provide your name + address to arrange for free contactless porch pick up (Avalon + Stone Harbor) and firing of your pottery, I will let you know when I can pick up. You could also ship back to us via USPS: Island Studio P.O. Box 62 Stone Harbor NJ 08247. Include your name and shipping address with your pottery on a piece of paper so that we know where to send it. Please allow 1-2 weeks shipping to receive your finished fired pottery. Pottery looks shiny once fired with this option. It is the preferred pottery option because it looks so nice.
  2. Pottery Painting Kits that DO NOT REQUIRE FIRING - ACRYLIC PAINT - Old clothes recommended (more affordable option, but will look VERY DIFFERENT FROM FIRED POTTERY - if you are accustomed to fired pottery you may not like it; also, it will not be food safe or hold water without leaking) - Pottery Kits come with brushes, paint, pottery and directions. Use the brown paper that comes with your order to spread out on your table to protect your work surface - No need to bring back
  3. Paint on Canvas Kits that DO NOT REQUIRE FIRING - ACRYLIC PAINT - Old clothes recommended - Paint Kits come with brushes, paint, canvas panel and directions. Use the brown paper that comes with your order to spread out on your table to protect your work surface - No need to bring back
  4. Wood and Seashell Craft Kits that DO NOT REQUIRE FIRING - ACRYLIC PAINT - Old clothes recommended - Craft Kits come with brushes, paint and directions. Wood kits are recommended for teens and adults and feature upcycled rustic distressed barn wood bases. Seashell kits are fun for any age. Use the brown paper that comes with your order to spread out on your table to protect your work surface - No need to bring back
  5. Coloring Book Kits with optional colored pencils
  6. Stone Harbor + Avalon Stickers

Be sure to choose the correct option when placing your order, as pricing varies and ACRYLIC POTTERY PAINTING KITS CANNOT BE FIRED.

  • Shipping - Free in the U.S. via USPS PRIORITY, USPS FIRST CLASS or ECONOMY BEST WAY with $50 purchase USE PROMO CODE: FREE
  • Free Contactless Porch Delivery to Stone Harbor + Avalon - Free with $35 purchase (allow up to a day based on delivery schedule).

Local Guide

My family had a wonderful time creating their pieces of pottery. My grandchildren are 11 years old, 9 years old and 3 years old. They enjoyed all the choices and had trouble choosing one piece but they did! We had a choice of colors and they loved choosing them. The three year old did a lovely mermaid. We were all pleasant surprised, at how carefully she did her piece and how lovely it came out. All the pieces looked beautiful and we will definitely make this a stop for the next time, we visit.
