What? How? When? Why? Where?
Do I need to make an appointment to paint pottery or make glass?

Do I need to be artistic to paint pottery or make glass?
Absolutely not! We are all about art being easy. We have many tips and tricks to help you create a wonderful project.
Can 2 of us do glass and 2 of us do pottery?
Yes, but not at the same table. Glass and bisque do not normally mix so we have a glass work area in back and bisque painting is in the front of the studio.
How much does it cost?
For Bisque & Stoneware, each piece is individually priced. We have pottery starting at $4. For Glass, pieces are priced by size, shape (square or circle), plus specialty glass and features are extra. Pendants (1.5" square or 1"x2") are $7, Night Lights are $20. The most popular size is an 8" square bowl for $38.
Can I bring food and drinks?
Both are welcome. You can even have food delivered. However, we do not recommend eating while painting. Greasy fingers will prevent the glaze from sticking.
Are the paints safe for kids? Do I need to bring an apron?
The paints are non-toxic, lead-free, and completely safe. They also completely wash out of clothing without pre-treating. We do have aprons. We are recommending aprons when painting Stoneware as some of the glazes can stain.
Is the pottery safe to eat off of?
