General Information for all Parties
For all parties, you will need a minimum of 6 painters. We need a 48-hour notice.
We will take a $25 deposit to reserve your time. Your $25 deposit will go toward your event. Please note, if the party goes over an hour, we reserve the right to charge you an additional $25 per half hour over your allotted time slot. If you cancel with less than 24-hour notice, we will keep your deposit.
We just do the pottery, so please no present opening or eating food in the studio.
Please call the studio the day before to give us your total head count for the party.
Some starting pottery options:
-$25 boxes and banks
-$25 animal figurines
-$22 salad plates
-$18 cups and mugs
The most popular way to do a party is to set a budget so the kids can pick whatever piece of pottery they want. Please see above under general information for pottery options and prices. The animal figures are our most popular party option. The other option is to let us know several weeks in advance and we can see about special ordering the same item for every child to paint.
When the kids arrive, they may pick one item that is $25 or less (or whatever your budget is). We put their names on the bottoms of the pieces, give them instructions, and then they start painting. A party lasts for approximately one hour. Space is limited, so we allow two adults to stay with the party. (There is a Biggby coffee or Dollar Tree in the plaza for entertainment purposes for the adults that are waiting for their child.)
One week after the party, the pottery will be ready for pick up by the party hostess. The party parent picks up ALL of the pottery and distributes it to the guests. Everything is individually bagged with each kid’s name on it so it's easy to distribute.
We have over 400 pieces of pottery to choose from, and cost varies depending on what you choose. Please see above under general information for pottery options and prices.
The average adult takes 2-3 hours to complete a project.
You may bring in beverages in covered containers, but no food please.
Private parties may be available outside of our normal business hours for groups of "6 or more" with a $200 nonrefundable deposit and minimum order.
Bring your group in for pottery painting. If you have a large group, we may schedule you outside of our normal business hours. Sometimes we can do special classes in mosaics, glass or clay depending on instructor availability and busyness of the studio.
Church Youth Groups
Girls Night Out
We can walk your group through the whole pottery process including a tour of the back room with the kilns. We love to use this as a reward for good group behavior and listening skills!
What a great event for team building! Go have lunch or dinner and then join us for a creative experience. Feel free to bring your own beverages in covered containers.
