Petroglyph Ceramic Lounge is an upscale paint-your-own pottery studio. Here you can explore your personal creativity, enjoy time with friends — and take home the unique ceramic art you create.
Our flagship studio is located in an historic downtown Santa Cruz site, on Walnut Avenue just a block off Pacific. Beautifully lit with skylights in a towering ceiling, Petroglyph was launched in Santa Cruz in 1994, in the years following the Loma Prieta earthquake. In almost 3000 square feet, Petroglyph is the perfect creative venue for your very special large parties or quaint events with live music. It also happens to be our corporate headquarters. You can’t miss the enormous “Song of Santa Cruz” mural along the side of our building, a tribute to the history of our location. (Trivia: the founders of Petroglyph are even painted into the train!)
