Check out our Online Store and buy take home ceramic painting kits. Setting up a Zoom birthday party is all the rage this summer!
**WE WILL RESUME IN STORE PARTIES AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER 2020, FOR PRIVATE EVENTS ONLY WITH UP TO 12 GUESTS. THE MINIMUM COST IS $200. CALL US AT 919-933-9700 OR EMAIL SUSANNAH@GLAZEDEXPECTATIONS.COM TO BOOK YOUR EVENT!**
Ceramic pieces painted with acrylics, when finished, take about 20 minutes to dry. Your guests will take these pieces home with them the same day. This type of paint isn’t food safe but is perfect for items such as animals, figurines, boxes, and banks. We recommend acrylic painting for children 7 years and under.
Ceramic pieces painted with glazes are left in the shop to be fired in the kiln. They’re ready to be picked up in 3-7 days. Glazes are food safe so all items in the store including drink ware, bowls and plates work with this selection. We recommend glaze painting for children 8 years and older.
Each child paints a 4×4($6), 6×6($8), 8×8($14) tile with their choice of acrylic or glaze paint.
Each child is taught how to sculpt one unique clay piece. The price is $25/child. These clay sculptures are left behind to be fired in the kiln and are ready to pick up or paint in 7 days. Clay sculpture parties must be held on weekdays or Sundays(which are subject to our private party guidelines).
Our minimum age for parties is 5 years old.
Due to the limited space in the shop, parents are encouraged to drop their children off at parties and pick them up when it’s over. We request that no more than two non-painting adults stay in the shop during the party.
At this time, we won’t be allowing food to be served in the shop. We encourage you to bring a treat bag for all the kids to take home with them instead!
You’ll pay for your guests pieces which includes unlimited paints, instruction, and kiln firing. Parents choose a price limit of $12, $14, $16, $18, or $20 & up for the ceramic pieces.
Please make your reservations in advance. A $50 deposit holds your spot and is then deducted from your total on the day of the event. All parties are scheduled in 2-hour blocks for children 9 years and older and 90-minute blocks for children 8 years and under.
If you’d like to schedule your party or event after business hours or on a day when we’re normally closed, there’s a $200 minimum.
Cancellations made seven days or more from the event will receive $50 in store credit. Cancellations made less than seven days from the event will forfeit the $50 deposit.
Please call 919-933-9700 or email Susannah@GlazedExpectations.com with questions or to make a reservation!
