Paint Your Own Pottery

Come visit us to paint your own fully functional ceramics!

You'll choose a piece, receive instruction and decorate a ceramic item of your choosing.

Our pricing is per item, and the cost per item is ALL INCLUSIVE.

That means the time you spend, the item you choose, your paints, materials, the glazing and firing of your piece is all included in the listed cost of the ceramic item.
(plus HST and if you choose to add gratuity.)

  • How much does it cost?
    Prices are ALL INCLUSIVE. We have a wide assortment of items, with a wide range of prices to suit every budget. Our stock changes every few weeks so please come in to see what's new!

  • How long is a visit?
    Most people finish their projects within 2 hours. On evenings, weekends and holidays we ask that you limit your visit to 2-2.5 hours so that we can accommodate all the painters who might want to visit us that day. If you don't finish in one visit you can return at a later date to complete your piece, at no additional charge.
  • When can I pick up my finished item?
    After the painting process, your item needs to be glazed and then fired in a kiln (pottery oven). Turnaround time is usually 7-10 days. We'll notify you by email when your piece is ready for pickup.
  • I'm not an artist... Will I enjoy this?
    Painters of ALL AGES and levels of experience with art can enjoy an afternoon of painting with us. ZERO skills required! Our lovely staff can guide you through different painting techniques to help you achieve your vision. Some folks find it helpful to browse Pinterest or Instagram for inspiration. We also have stencils, idea books and many different techniques that require no special training to execute. We also have a lot of items that are detailed, so that you just need to pick your favourite colours and paint them in!
  • Are the items functional?
    They are! After firing, our ceramics are fully non-toxic and food safe. You can put them in the dishwasher and even reheat food in them in the microwave. Please note that they are softer than commercial ceramics so handwashing will ensure they will last forever, and it's not recommended to cook items in the microwave as they will heat up
  • Do you serve Food & Drinks?
    We have a drink fridge with a small assortment of non-alcoholic refreshments for sale on site. You are also welcome to bring in coffee or drinks from another establishment. Alcoholic drinks are not permitted. Food and ceramics do not mix, as oils from your hands can cause issues with the paint not adhering to the ceramic. Please plan your meals around your visit to us.
  • Do I need a Reservation?
    It's strongly recommended! Although we did just move to a larger location in October 2023, we still find ourselves fully booked during popular times such as evenings, weekends, PD days and holidays. It's best to book ahead to avoid disappointment, though we are happy to accept walk ins when available. Please visit our reservation page here to book your spot.
  • I'd like to bring a large group in to paint
    Got a group of 10+ people you want to bring? Check out our large group booking page here. Be sure to book ahead for any size of larger groups as well. We do fill up fast on weekends and evenings!
  • Do you offer Kiln Rental services or Repair services?
    We do not offer any kiln rental services or ceramic repair services. We are too busy with our current offerings and our kilns run around the clock to get your in-store painted items back to you as quickly as possible.
  • Do you sell Gift Cards?
    Gift Cards are available for purchase online and in store. All Gift Cards are Final Sale.
