PAINT AT HOME!

Prefer to paint in the comfort of your home?
Order ceramics online, choose your paints and come by and pick up in store or contactless curbside, you decide.

1.  CHOOSE YOUR CERAMICS
Select the pieces you want to paint and add them to your cart.

2.  PICK YOUR PAINT SUPPLIES
DO NOT USE ANY OTHER PAINTS OTHER THAN THE ONES PROVIDED. DOING SO MAY RESULT IN YOUR PIECE NOT BEING FIRED. 
Pick up to 5 different paint colours per household. If you order many pieces (or large items), feel free to add more paints. We may contact you for clarification.

4. WAIT FOR YOUR NOTIFICATION
We'll pack up your order, and notify you when it's ready for pick up. Order made during opening hours will be available same-day.

5. Check this page out for detailed instructions on how to paint at home: Get Started

6. Paint away!

7.  BRING YOUR PIECES BACK TO BE FIRED IN OUR KILN
Return your items and your materials during our curbside hours, and we'll glaze and fire your pieces. Once fired, they are fully functional. (Dishwasher, Microwave and Food Safe!)  Make sure to include your order number and name in the packaging.

Our turnaround time is ~7-10 days. We'll notify you by email once your piece is ready!


What to Expect in Store

We have created private painting pods and are following strict cleaning protocols to keep our employees and our clients safe. In addition, we currently have a 10 person max capacity for our studio.
Visits are limited to 2 hours, during peak times such as weekends and holidays.

1. Choose an item from our vast inventory. (Prices are all inclusive, no studio fees. Pick your item before your visit by purchasing it in advance here)

2. Receive a short 5 minute explanation from one of our knowledgeable staff members on how the painting process works. We're here to help you achieve your vision! We have lots of fun and cool techniques for every age and skill level. 

3. Choose some paints, sit down in your Painting Pod and enjoy a few hours of creativity!

4. Once your masterpiece is completed, leave it with us. We will glaze and fire your piece in one of our kilns, and we'll send you an email confirmation when it's ready to go home, between 7-10 days after your visit.

Finished Product?

Once you're finished painting your piece, leave it with us for Glazing and Firing in one of our Kilns. This process takes between 7-9 days, after which we will notify you by email when your items are ready. Items are food and microwave safe after firing, and though they may survive the dishwasher, we recommend handwashing your precious heirloom.
