Ready for some much needed art therapy with friends and family? You probably have some questions, so here is some basic information to get you started.
COST – The cost of your pottery adventure will be the studio fee $8/per painter along with the cost of the pieces. Pieces range in price from around $17 and up. Please note - a gratuity of 15% is added to groups of 6 or more painters.
PARKING - Thompson's Point lots are private pay to park lots that charge a small fee. You will need to use the pay and display system or the passport parking app. You can start with an hour and add more time as needed. We highly recommend the app so you can add more time from your table! We do not own or operate these lots so any questions can be directed to Thompson's Point or UPP directly.
TIME – The time it takes to paint depends largely on piece and design choice. We recommend allowing around an hour for children and between an hour and a half to two hours for adults.
RESERVATIONS are recommended for groups of 5 or more painters by calling ahead to (207) 536-4848 but you can also try your luck at finding two table together if you decide to drop in.
PARTIES/GROUPS - Any organized painting events can be booked by clicking on our events or book a party tab.
WALK-IN PAINTING - We are OPEN for all walk-in painters!
NON-PAINTERS? Please note we cannot accommodate more than 1 or 2 non painters per group. Just as you wouldn't patron a restaurant and request to have a space for 8 with only 3 dinning, please use the same etiquette here to be respectful of our shop and other painters. Our studio is for painting and gets fairly busy at times. It is not possible to accommodate many bystanders who will not be seated at the painting tables.
COVID POLICIES - We follow all recommendations and requirements by federal and local authorities. Currently - we simply ask that you wash your hands upon entry. You may paint with or without a mask (UNLESS there is a mandate in place) OR grab things to paint at home. No questions asked and something for everyone.
NEED IDEAS? Click the links to our Pinterest and social media accounts where you will find inspiration galore! Our "projects" page can be an inspirational source as well but please be mindful those exact items aren't always in stock. You can always recreate them on available items or ask for them to be special ordered for you. If in doubt, call ahead!
PLEASE NOTE IT TAKES 5 DAYS FOR US TO GLAZE AND FIRE YOUR CREATIONS. WE CAN HOLD PIECES UP TO 3 MONTHS ONLY, AFTER THAT (AND 3 REMINDER CALLS) ALL ITEMS WILL BE DISCARDED UNLESS SHIPPING ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE FOR THEM DURING THAT TIME.
NEED SHIPPING? Won’t be around in 5 days or want to beat the 3 month deadline? We have you covered. Be sure to ask about rates!
STORM CLOSINGS? All studio closures will be announced via our social media pages. Please also note – In some cases your pieces may be delayed a day in firing due to closings. If in doubt, please call ahead regarding piece pickup availability.
