1. Come in anytime, browse our shelves, and pick out the piece you'd like to paint. Choose a mug, a vase, a lamp, a cookie jar, a flowerpot, a pet dish, a pie plate, a sushi plate, a piggy bank -- we've got lots for you to choose from.

2. Plan out your masterpiece with a #2 pencil (it burns off in the kiln!). Choose paints for your palette, and go! Our friendly staff artists are happy to assist you with hints, tips and techniques, and we have plenty of idea books, images, and stencils to help you find a direction.

3. When you're finished, leave it with us. We'll glaze and fire it for you, and have it ready for you to pick up in 6 days.

4. Come and get it! Your finished piece will be dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe. All materials used in our shop are nontoxic and safe for young children and old.

The cost is the price of the piece that you choose (the pieces range from $3.00 to $40.00) plus $4.00 per half-hour per painter for painting time. This includes everything from paints to glazing and firing and background music. All you have to bring is your talent and creativity!
