Plan a fun and creative event for your child!
TYPES OF PARTIES
Ceramic pieces painted with acrylics, when finished, take about 20 minutes to dry. Your guests can then 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 are then 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 $20/child or $28/child if you’d like to include the fee for the return trip to paint the piece. 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.
Kids parties can be held in the studio for up to 30 people. Our minimum age for parties is 4 years old.
Parties with 12 people or less for 8 year olds and younger can be scheduled on Fridays from 4-5:30pm, 4:30-6pm, or 5-6:30pm, Saturdays from 10-11:30am or 1-2:30pm and on Sundays from 1-2:30pm. Parties with 12 people or less for 9 year olds and older can be scheduled on Fridays 4-6pm or 4:30-6:30pm, Saturdays from 10am-12pm or 1-3pm and on Sundays from 1-3pm. Parties with 13-18 kids must start on Fridays by 5pm, Saturdays at 10am or Sundays at 1pm. If your group exceeds 18 people, it can be scheduled from 11am-12:30pm on Sundays and it would be subject to the Private Party guidelines or it can be held on a weekday. Weekday parties with groups of 20 people or less can be scheduled anytime during our store hours.
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. If some parents would like to stay, we request it be no more than five non-painting adults.
If you’d like to serve food(cake, cupcakes, etc.) and drinks at your function, we’ll provide the table and tablecloth. You’ll need to bring cups, plates, napkins, and silverware as well as any edibles. A $30 party fee is added to all events with food and drink.
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. If you’re serving food and/or drinks, a $30 party fee is added to the event.
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 $250 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.
