Paint the Earth is a place to prep and paint your own pottery; they fire it in the kiln for you and it can be picked up at a later date. They have numerous pieces in the studio for inspiration, which is important because there are so many options of items to paint! It is a really relaxing place to channel some creative energy and catch up with friends. The painting area is larger than I have seen in other pottery places which is good since they can get busy. The only problem is finding parking, but that is true of most businesses in Chapel Hill that are on Franklin St. Paint the Earth is also located close to some amazing restaurants so it's a great way to spend an afternoon in Chapel Hill.
