Craft Kits are easy and convenient and come with instructions, supplies, and brown kraft paper to protect your work surface.


We offer 6 types of CRAFT KITS which include brushes, paint, supplies and instructions:

  1. FIRED POTTERY PAINTING KITS - The paint is washable with easy clean up. Only use the special paint we give you. Call us after painting to arrange for firing. Please allow 1-2 weeks shipping to receive your finished fired pottery back. Pottery looks shiny once fired with this option.
  2. NO FIRE POTTERY PAINTING KITS WITH ACRYLIC PAINT - Old clothes are recommended. This is a more affordable option, but will look different from fired pottery; also, it will not be food safe or hold water without leaking. No need to bring back for firing.
  3. PAINT ON CANVAS KITS WITH ACRYLIC PAINT - Old clothes are recommended. No need to bring back.
  4. WOOD PAINTING KITS + SEASHELL PAINTING KITS WITH ACRYLIC PAINT - Old clothes are recommended. Wood kits are recommended for teens and adults. Seashell kits are fun for any age. No need to bring back either option.
  5. LOCAL COLORING BOOK KITS with optional colored pencils.
  6. LOCAL STICKERS - Stone Harbor, Avalon, Turtles + more.

Be sure to choose the correct option when placing your order, as pricing varies and ACRYLIC POTTERY PAINTING KITS CANNOT BE FIRED. Paints last awhile in the small containers we provide, but not try to finish painting your project(s) in a week or so, before your paint dries up. Purchasing additional set(s) of paints is an option if you forgot and waited too long to paint. If painting in front of the studio on the first come tables, let me know and I can add a cup of water and paper towels for rinsing brushes. Use the brown paper that comes with your order to spread out on your table to protect your work surface. As always, supervise children to help them with the art kits. Items are packed with care and love.

How to pick your colors for fired pottery on a mobile device:

For those that like to plan ahead: You can place your order days ahead of time and tell us the day you would like pickup, shipping or delivery.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Currently, some indoor establishments like the Stone Harbor Library, local theater and inside dining all remain closed due to NJ State guidelines. Our studio is an indoor studio where guests sit for extended periods of time to paint. During this difficult time, we understand everyone wants to spend time at the studio with family and friends. For many, a trip to our studio has been a yearly tradition. To ensure we don't inadvertently spread COVID-19 and needlessly put our loved ones at risk, Island Studio has closed the indoor portion of the studio to guests for the remainder of 2020. Purchasing a TO GO Craft Kit is the best way to support us during this time so we are here for you when things get back to normal.

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.
