We are exited about our Grand Re-Opening Week!

June 17, 2020 – We are excited to announce our grand re-opening! 

Beginning this weekend, June 19 – 20th, 2020, you will once again be able to come into the studio and be creative!

We have been working hard to devise procedures and safety methods that meet the new state and government recommendations for a business such as ours. As we begin to resume a bit of normalcy and welcome our friends and fans back into the studio we are aware of two things – 1) our new processes may not be the most desired for everyone, and 2) as the last few months have shown us things can change very quickly and we are hopeful to once again resume normal procedures and offer services our customers have come to enjoy and know they can depend on us for. 

New services and hours:

 First, we want you to know that we are implementing these processes and procedures for your best interest and to keep everyone healthy. We know this crisis has been disrupting and in no means are we wanting to add to the stress and anxiety we have all been experiencing.  All customers must wear a properly fitted face mask to enter the studio, we understand many individuals find masks to be uncomfortable, however, because we are a small studio we want you and all of our other customers to be as safe as possible. We respect your decision to choose not to wear a mask, please respect our decision to require one inside our space.

In the event you misplace your mask or discover your mask is lost or damaged upon arrival, we have masks you can purchase for a reasonable price. 

Services  –

Pick up & Create at home – During these days/times,  up to 5 customers at once can enter the studio to browse and select items to make at home. Each order will be carefully packaged and include enough paint/glaze to complete each item. If you choose to create with ceramics then, once they are completed, simply drop them off to have them fired. A no-stress way to be creative when you want at home!

Sit & Make it here – During these days/times, you can reserve one of the tables for your group (up to 4 ppl per table). When you arrive your table will be ready just for you already. Just select your items to make along with your colors to paint and then relax as you enjoy letting your creative mind go! A $10 non-refundable deposit is required for all reservations to ensure everyone has a fair opportunity to utilize our spaces. But don’t worry, we simply apply the deposit towards your purchases made during your reservation. Each reservation is scheduled for 2.5 hours. If you need more time and the next time slot is available you are more than welcome to stay. In the event the next time slot is booked, we will simply let you know about 15 minutes before your time is up. and package your items with any needed glazes so you can complete them at home. 

New hours – 

Tuesday & Wednesday – PICKUP & TAKE HOME ONLY

HOURS – 11 AM – 5:30 PM

Thursday – Saturday -SIT & CREATE (reservation required) 

HOURS – 10:30 AM – 6 PM

Classes: 

Mr. Mike’s classes will resume near the end of June. Classes size will be limited. Only registered students will be allowed in the studio during class sessions. Parents, please refrain from entering the studio. This new procedure is for the health benefit of all students and staff during this time. Students are required to wear a facemask at all times and stay seated during class as appropriate. If applicable classes can and may be held outside in the grassy area behind the studio, as directed by the instructor. Please have your student dress appropriately for class. The COVID waiver must be signed by all parents and guardians before any child will be allowed to attend class. Each child must bring a completed health log data sheet with them and turn it into the instructor at the start of class. Parents will receive the health log data sheet upon registering their child for class. This is a simple form that is required by state regulations and is for the health benefit of all students. 

Paint with me! Summer Painting Sessions have already started and will continue to be offered as a virtual painting class. These sessions are offered weekly and each registered participant will be able to pick up their kit for the week’s class between the hours of Wednesday 4 PM – 5:30 PM and Thursday 10: 30 AM – 12 Noon. Local Delivery (Pickerington Area only) is available for a nominal charge. Kits include canvas and paint needed for the session. Brushes are not included but can be purchased separately from the studio. ( Contact the studio for more information on delivery services and to purchase brushes.)

      We are no longer offering wheel throwing classes. We will be offering clay Saturdays eventually and these focus on hand-building techniques with clay.

    Thanks for the update. The kids want to come and stay to paint but not if they have to wear masks. They are excited about you reopening but we’ll have to wait until the rules are relaxed. Thanks again see you soon

      Thanks for the reply, Mr. Hall. We sure do miss the kids. Sorry about the masks we just can’t take any risks. We do offer masks that the kids can color and have found these to be favorites especially with children who don’t want to wear a mask. Just email us or send us a message via facebook if you’re interested. We are sad that COVID has caused such issues and we might not get to see the kids this summer. Hopefully, we will sooner than later – they are such great kids. Take care and be healthy and safe.
