Experience Girls Night out at The Mad Potter with pottery, painting, and wine.
Last week, I went to The Mad Potter with a large group of girlfriends from the Houston Food Blogger Collective for a girls night out, complete with wine. Upon arrival, we grabbed food and, of course, wine then were walked through the process. The Mad Potter has an amazing selection of colors and tools to help you achieve whatever look you’re going for with your piece. They can even create a stencil of your own photograph or logo for you to use! We had a blast sipping wine, spilling tea, and expressing both our creativity and undying love for Queen Bey through artwork.
Girls Night Out at The Mad Potter Details
If you want to visit for girls night out, here’s what you need to know:
- Girls Night Out is on Thursdays
- Studio fee is $15. This includes paint and other materials as well as wine.
- There’s a $15 product minimum. (A wine goblet like mine costs $12.50.)
There are other specials each night of the week. For example, Friday night is date night, with a studio fee of $12 per couple. You can bring in snacks, order from Uber Eats, etc., and wine is for sale at the River Oaks location or BYOB at the others (plus a 75 cent corking fee). They also do parties, bachelorettes, corporate events, and more. Check out their website for full details.
The basic flow of things is as follows:
- Arrive and pick your pottery.
- Design your masterpiece with the guidance of The Mad Potter staff.
- Bring it to life with your friends.
- Pick it up in 3-5 days (they’ll call you) once it’s been glazed and fired in the kiln. This makes it food-safe and shiny!
The Mad Potter is founded and run by native Houstonian Meredith McCord so when you visit, you’re not only having a good time with good wine, you’re supporting a local, woman-owned business! #GirlBoss. There are three locations in the Houston area–the flagship location in River Oaks, Bellaire/Meyerland, and Memorial.
And here’s my finished wine goblet, which will be full of wine tonight after work. 🙂 What do you think of my masterpiece? Thanks for reading!
