Decorate a Handmade Mug!

Each kit contains a wheel-thrown mug made in The Dairy Barn Ceramic Studio. Glaze it with your own designs! Special kid sized mugs available too.

Create with Clay at Home!

Choose a kit with 1 lb. or 2 lbs. of clay. Boxes contain tools, glazes and an instruction booklet to help you get started. Make your creations and bring them back to The Dairy Barn to be fired in the kiln!
