Art for the Soul

A mobile paint-your- own-pottery studio, where the fun comes to you!

What's the big idea?

It’s time for the closet artists to make her their way to the living room! Our plan is to create a mobile paint-your-own-pottery studio, so you can be creative and have fun with your friends and family at your own pace and in your own space. Whether you want to entertain or just need a creative outlet, we will help by offering tips, ready kits, parties, and packages galore.

Describe the nearest player in your field.

There is a paint-your-own pottery studio in Bay City, about 30 minutes away from our home base location.  This is a permanent studio, they do not a offer mobile services or in-home parties.  There is no local competition that offers the services we plan to offer.

How are you different from that player?

Unlike traditional paint-your own-pottery studios, we will come to you. We deliver, pick up, fire, and re-deliver.  This allows customers from all over the area an opportunity to have some creative fun, without the hassle of having to travel back to a studio to pick up their product.

How does this idea scale into a big business?

Eventually, we will open a studio space in Frankenmuth that patrons can visit to glaze pottery. We will always continue to offer our mobile services, as well as establish the studio that will feature other art classes.

Why are you the one to run with this idea?

Sarah has a degree in Art Education and has been teaching for 8 years. She has a wealth of knowledge in several facets of art and ceramics. Tricia, also a creative gal, brings to the table plenty of business knowledge as well as fun and unique ideas.  Together we are the perfect team!

What is a $5,000 experiment you can do to move your idea forward?

With the $5,000, we will purchase a kiln and launch our business.  We plan to have several party “packages” available for customers offering non-traditional bridal showers, birthday parties, and more!  Our goal is to bring out the inner artist in everyone–after all, art fuels the soul!

    You know it is fun when the kids walk in the house and ask what craft they get to do!  Pottery is something most of us don’t have access to and the kids (of all ages) LOVE it!  Go girls - get this up and running full tilt!!
