Paint Your Own Masterpiece at Made by Me

If you love arts and crafts, but you don’t love the clean-up afterward, let Made by Me do your dirty work. It’s a paint-your-own pottery studio in Cambridge that has all the supplies you need to make a masterpiece, including as-needed guidance from a working artist/staff member.

No need to call ahead and make an appointment. Simply walk into Made by Me and begin browsing its assortment of ceramic pieces. There are options at every price point, and the items range from a mug or a vase to a sushi plate or a lamp base. Once you’ve chosen your ceramic, use a pencil to sketch out a design with a stencil or freehand. Then brush on non-toxic paint in your chosen hues, and hand the piece to the staff. They’ll fire it in the kiln so you can pick up the finished product within six days.
