DO I NEED A RESERVATION?
Walk-ins are ALWAYS welcome! Weekends, holidays & PA days can be a busy time for us and we recommend making a reservation for groups of 6+ to guarantee a table available and set up for you.
DO I NEED TO REGISTER FOR SEWING LESSONS?
Yes, this is a must! We are unable to accept walk-ins for sewing lessons at this time. We have carefully scheduled and created an outline for our sewing lessons. Materials and content require preparation based on the amount registered.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PAINT?
Depends what you choose. We have pottery ranging from $8-$60 and includes all you will need- the piece, paints, studio time and the firing.
WHAT IF YOU’RE NOT AN ARTIST?
There is no right or wrong way to create art! We are here to help you bring your ideas to life, or use one of our painted samples as inspiration. We have a huge selection of silkscreens, stencils and helpful hints to share.
WHAT ARE SILKSCREENS?
Only the best design tool ever! Silkscreens are similar to stencils, but much more detailed. A thickening medium is added to paint to help hold it's shape when painted so it doesn't bleed and make a big mess. Once the design is painted over it is simply removed- like a bandaid!
IS YOUR POTTERY SAFE TO EAT OFF OF?
Yes! Our pottery is 100% lead free and food safe after fired. However we do not recommend putting pieces in the microwave or dishwasher.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET PAINT ON MY CLOTHES?
Our paint is water based and easily cleans from clothes & tables.
CAN I HAVE A PARTY AT MEDIUM ART STUDIO?
Yes, you can! Give us a call at 905-635-5000 to make a reservation.
Each party is given a 2-hour window to celebrate. Food and drink is welcome in the studio, but we suggest waiting until painting is complete to eat. A non refundable $35 room fee secures the party room date & time and availability of party piece.
WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY A ROOM FEE?
This room fee secures availability of the full use of our private party room for the date & time for you and ensures the availability of the piece of choice to paint for the party.
HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN PICK UP MY FINISHED POTTERY?
We fire once a week on Saturday nights and available the following Monday. We like to get as much in the kiln as we can, and it runs for a full 24 hours and reaches the scorching temperature of 1800 degrees! Depending on when you come during our firing schedule will dictate when your pieces will be ready for you.
WHAT IF I DON'T FINISH MY PIECE?
Not a problem- you can't rush art! Leave it with us as a Work In Progress, and you'll have 30 days to come back to finish it.
DO YOU SELL GIFT CARDS?
Absolutely! All you need to do is drop by the store, tell us the amount you want to give, and we will give you a gift card that never expires. Our gift cards are applicable to all of our services- paint your own pottery, sewing lessons and DIY classes.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
That all depends on you! The more detailed the design, the more time you’ll need to finish. We recommend budgeting 45 minutes- 2 hours- this also depends on the age & level of detail. If your project is more detailed or you have kiddos who need to take a break and stretch their legs, you can always have us hold your piece as a Work In Progress.
DO YOU TAKE CUSTOM ORDERS?
Yes! Our talented employees love helping you create the perfect piece of art. We can take your favorite plate or mug and paint it exactly how you want. Give us a call and we’ll bring your ideas to life!
WHAT ABOUT REFUNDS?
Refunds or replacement will be issued in the rare occurrence of mishaps in the kiln. We cannot be held accountable for satisfaction of
final result of pieces- imperfections are what make these pottery pieces one of a kind and handmade. We will of course be here to help answer any questions and provide tips along the way! Non attendance for events with no notice are not applicable for refund. Ticket cost will be used as a store credit to be used at another date. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
