  1. Do you offer classes in pottery such as making our own bowls etc.?


    1. Hello Sharon,

      At this time, we do not have classes for making your own pottery. We plan to offer that in the future, but are currently focusing on paint your own pottery. If you would like to come in, we can get you on our email list for updates on when we will be offering the classes.

      Thank you for your question. Have a good evening!


  2. How do your prices vary? If I happen to walk in and I have a certain amount of money I would like to spend, does each item tell me before choosing what I paint?


    1. We have a variety of prices, ranging from $2 (mini magnets) to $80 (biggy dog bank). Our prices are all inclusive, so the price on the wall by the pottery includes everything. It depends on what you paint for prices, but you could come in with $20 and have a good selection to choose from. You are more than welcome to come down and browse our inventory. We are also going to have some new pieces coming in this week! Feel free to follow us on Facebook or Instagram to see the new pieces when they arrive! Thanks for your question!


  3. What is the biggest I can get for 30 dollars?


    1. Hi Lael! Do you have something in particular that you’re looking for? We have mugs, plates, kitchenware, housewares, and figurines all for $30 and under. I’d be happy to help you find something to fit your needs!

    We will be in town again on October 4th. we would like to paint some pottery but will not be able to pick it up later. Do you offer shipping??


    1. Hi Susan! Yes, we do offer shipping. We usually charge $5/piece for shipping, unless it’s a large piece and then we determine the cost based on size. We look forward to seeing you!

    Hi, we’ve been to your shop twice while on vacation. We would like to stop again but the days we’re coming back through you are closed. So is your shipping prices the same or is there anyway to pick up our pieces if someone could meet us on the days you’re closed.


  6. would like to find a ceramic nativity set to paint at home, do you have any?


    1. Hi Mary! I apologize for the delay in responding. I missed the notification for your comment.

      At this time, we do not have nativity sets. They have been discontinued by our suppliers. I do apologize!


  7. Can i bring my own ceramic pieces to paint? If yes what would the cost of that be?


    1. Hi Daniela!

      It is a case by case basis, but we rarely allow outside pottery. We have to know the origin of the pieces in order to know if our glazes are compatible and the correct temperature to fire it at. We have to protect our kiln, as it is our livelihood, but we also want to protect our customer’s artwork and an improper firing could ruin the piece and our kiln. If you purchased it from another pottery studio, it is more likely we could fire it, but if it’s from a retail store, we will not fire them, as we do not know what material has been used to create the piece. You can bring them to the studio and we’d be more than happy to look at the piece and determine if it’s something we could help with or not. Thank you for your question!

    Hi, I was wondering if you are accepting kid painting for my son to enjoy so, he can give something for his grandma on mother’s day?


    1. Hello, Etelle! Yes, we welcome you to bring your son in to paint something. Unfortunately, it won’t be ready to pick up in time for Mother’s Day. Our firing process is about a week turn around, so anything painted this weekend will be ready to pick up next Friday after 4:00 p.m.

      Thank you and Happy Mother’s Day!
