Kids will enjoy choosing from our wide range of fun and functional ceramic items. Check out our current inventory here to have an idea of what is available in store. Most parents choose a price range for the kids to choose from, and our helpful staff are there to guide them in the right direction.
Kids items range in price from $21-$35 on average. Items do not need to be purchased in advance.
Seatings are 2 hours in length in our studio in the evening and on weekends. Up to two non-painters may accompany the group due to capacity limitations. Kids usually spend around 1-2 hours painting, depending on their age and attention span. The younger the painter, typically the faster the painter.
We do not have a separate party room. All parties are held in the main part of our studio. Please note that during the holiday season you can expect it to be a very boisterous environment.
Painting Party - No Food Served
If you would like to join us just for painting, you are welcome to make a reservation by phone or email. There is no additional charge for the party booking, however we require a $50 deposit to be made in advance to secure your spot. This is taken off the total upon payment of your total invoice on the day of the event. There are no limits to numbers or items chosen. If you would like the option to serve food, please see below.
Painting and Eating Party - Serving of Food
If you’d like to serve food, there is an additional charge of $50 on top of the price of your ceramics for an extra 30 minutes after your two hour seating time. This is subject to availability.
The $50 charge is to be paid at booking, and confirms your booking time slot.
You must have a minimum of 8 painters and a maximum of 12 to qualify for this option. You’re welcome to have adults to join in with painting as you may substitute adults/children to reach the minimum of 8.
We do not provide any materials for the serving of food. You are required to bring your own supplies, and you are responsible for cleanup as well. You must occupy your table for no longer than the chosen 2.5 hour time slot, or you will incur an additional 30 minute $50 charge.
Our studio assistants will handle clean up of all of the painting materials.
Please note that the months of November and December are very busy at our studio, and we retain the right to black out certain dates for the service of food. From December 11-24 these options will not be available.
We are located in lively Old Ottawa South, and there are several neighbouring restaurants where you can continue the party after you’ve completed your painting activity with us instead. We are just south of Landsdowne Park.
If you’d like to join us for just the painting activity and host the food service elsewhere, there are no additional costs (the $50 charge is just a deposit that is refunded from your total) and there are no minimums for painters.
Parties with Food Service Add-On are available during the following times:
Saturday or Sunday
1pm - 3:30pm
4pm - 6:30pm
As of October 1st:
6pm - 8:30pm
If you’d like to request a time during the week outside of these hours, please contact us.
The Fine Print:
Cancellations: Deposits will not be refunded, but can be used for in store credit or for rescheduling if we are given 24 hours notice of cancellation by email.
Your party's pieces will be ready in 7-10 days. Finished pieces will be wrapped separately but placed in one bag or box for easy pick up by the organizer. You’ll be notified by email when your items are ready for pick up.
Party host must pick up the group box to distribute items to participants. Parents of guests cannot pick up pieces individually from the studio.
Items must be picked up within 60 days, or we reserve the right to dispose of them.
All paints that we use in our studio are non-toxic, lead free and food safe. No apron is required while pottery painting as all paint is water-based. Any mess will wash off hands or clothes with water.
Recommended for Age 4 and up. Younger painters often paint very quickly, so if you are with a younger group, please bring additional activities for them such as pencil crayons and paper to occupy them as the more focused children complete their items, as we do not provide these materials.
Children must be supervised at all times and not be allowed to roam throughout the studio. You will be responsible for any breakage that may occur.
