  • Have been visiting the studio since I discovered OBX for vacation 4 years ago. I finally got to take a class. So much fun! Love my fairy house, and my new fairy garden. Will certainly take another cla...  more »
  • THIS IS A MUST STOP SHOP! I wish I could give them more stars. This is one of my favorite shops on the island. I just love the staff, they are always super friendly. They truly have something for ever...  more »
  • Took a break from the beach and decided to take a Coastal Clay Art class with my sister-in-law and teenage niece. We were really impressed with the instructor and she gave us some great ideas for our ...  more »

  • This was our first time in Avon and I had googled some attractions to check out while here. This one was my favorite by far. If you call ahead you can get the schedule for "make your own" projects that need a few days to cure and fire. I missed the Tuesday morning session by going in the afternoon; it would have been fun. The items in this shop are made by various artists, some local, but all from North Carolina. I saw a few things I really liked, but I had other pottery shops on my list in Hatteras & Frisco, so I wanted to wait to see what else I found. I came back on Friday and bought one of the items and a book written by a local author. Ask for a card to be punched/ stamped at 3 other shops in Frisco and Hatteras and you get a $10 credit for any of the four shops. I used mine here, but I almost used it at Blue Pelican Gallery in Hatteras that has a yarn shop inside, but I'm glad I came back to Kinnakeet Clay. Maybe I can use up my yarn stash before we get back to Hatteras and I can use my next coupon at Blue Pelican. :)
  • Very personable staff. There are a lot of craft classes offered and the instructors are very patient.
  • Kinnakeet Clay is a wonderfully unique shop with a vast variety of clever artwork; both for useful and practical purposes as well as display. Though there is definitely a beach/water overtone to some of the art, there is a great span of styles. The store is very pleasant and there are so many great gift ideas. The quality is so far above most shops at reasonable prices. The pottery class is a really fun way to spend part of your day with the bonus of creating your own art to take home. The class is surprisingly easy for even those of us that have no talent! I highly recommend looking up Kinnakeet Clay if you are ever nearby.
  • I adore Kinnakeet Clay - Studio & Showroom! Of course, I should... this is my little slice of heaven on Hatteras Island. We offer fantastic shopping for decorative and functional pottery, jewelry, paintings, prints, textiles and much more from approximately 40 local and regional artisans (including myself) plus fresh cut flowers by the stem... you choose your buds, we wrap your bouquet... fresh and lovelies. We also have working artist studios and a full production pottery studio on site where we host classes and workshops in pottery, quilling, watercolor painting, nautical knot accessories and screen printing (to name a few). We're off the beaten path in the Old Avon Village. Seek us out when next you are on the Outer Banks of NC!
