Sure, people like Einstein, Van Gogh, Galileo and Matisse are considered geniuses now, but back in their day, they were thought of as being a little wacky, a bit out there... and more than a little "crackpot."
These days, if you're a crackpot, it means you're thinking "outside the box." At Crackpots, we prefer to call it "thinking outside the pot." Our mission is to help you create your own pottery masterpieces in an easy, stress-free atmosphere that's fun for all ages. Just bring your creativity, and we'll provide everything else you need.
Best of all, there's no experience necessary, no degree of talent required, and no "right" way to do it!
