Can I take my item home the same day?

This depends on what you are creating. Pottery painting and Glass Fusing creations cannot go home the same day as they need to be kiln fired.

Mosaics, wood and canvas painting projects can go home the same day. Clay projects generally take 2 – 3 weeks because the clay has to dry slowly before being kiln fired.

Effective Sept 1, 2019 – If your pottery is painted with acrylic paint, it can go home with you when you leave.  

Is the Creativity Café suitable for Children?

Creativity Cafe is for children of all ages!

Children love to paint!  The Creativity Cafe is very “child friendly” but NOT childproof! You will need to watch your children at all times.

Are the paints/glazes lead-free?

Yes – The Creativity Café uses only lead free paints and glazes.

Can I use the pieces?

Yes – food safe and totally usable. Top shelf of dishwasher safe also! Though some people like to follow the ha “Fie China Rule” hand painted so hand-wash rule of thumb!

Are you wheelchair accessible?

Yes

If I don’t finish my piece then what?

You can return to finish your pottery item at another time using our Work In Progress Policy

We do not have WIP for non-pottery items or poterry items not painted with pottery glazes and all other items should befinished during the time in the studio.  No take home and return 

Customers may take home unfinished pottery pieces and must return within sixty (60) days to finish painting pottery piece(s) without any additional charge.

Customer understands and acknowledges that they will not use any other paints/glazes to complete pottery at home  than those that were provide by the Creativity Cafe.

The Creativity Cafe ill not be responsible for any pottery pieces if the customer paints with any paint/glazes that were not provided by the creaticvity cafe in studio.

We do not accept pieces for firing in the kiln if the custosmer finishes painting outise the studio or did not purchase from the Creativity Cafe (EFF 03-15-2019)

Do we need painting clothing?

All pottery paints are completely washable so painting clothing is not required. (unless you decide to use acrylic paints on your pottery)

If you are creating a Canvas, the paints are Acrylic and we will supply aprons but recommend you don’t wear your Sunday Best!

Can I send somebody else to pick up my finished items?

Only if they know exactly what you painted, your pieces are clearly marked with your names AND/OR they have the receipt.

They may be asked to sign the pickup sheet as well

I have some old partially painted bisque can I bring it in to finish and be fired?

The Creativity Cafe prefers to glaze and fire only items that were purchased and painted in our studio with our glazes

We are having a small group and it’s somebody’s birthday, can we bring a cake?

Food is not allowed and or recommended in the stdio area near pottery. Our private party room is perfect for that and is based on party packages and party fee’s.  Contact us to get more information about booking a party

Do you sell just the bisque without us painting it in the studio?

Yes! If you would like to purchase just the bisque, come in and we will assist you. Items that are NON dinnerware can be painted at home using Acrylic paints which do not require to be glazed and fired. Our prices include the glazing and firing so we will reduce the bisque price by 15% as a cash and carry discount, when the bisque will be painted at home ( not in the studio) using acrylic paints.  

Do you cater to large groups?

Yes! We host lots of events for Schools, Guides/Scouts, Sports Clubs, and senior homes…  Red Hat Society groups etc… If your event is too big we can always come to you! Or you can borrow our Pottery To Go box which gives you a selection of colors, brushes etc… You then purchase the bisque, go to your event and paint. Bring the items back to us for glazing and firing.

We also have a “Give Back” and “Fundraising” opportunities.

Contact the studio for details. 

Do you offer group discounts for non-profit organizations?

Yes! We have special pricing for Schools, Guides/Scouts, and childcare facilities, based on numbers and I.D. Please refer to our Non-Profits Group and Give Back Program  page for more information or contact the studio for details

Do you offer Fundraising opportunities?

Yes! We have lots of ideas to help you raise money for your organization. Please refer to our Fundraising and Give Back Program  page for more information  or contact the studio directly at 678-272-2431

What happens if I can’t pick up my piece once it is ready?

The Creativity Cafe  will hold your project for 30 days. Unfortunately, due to lack of storage space we cannot be responsible for holding it longer than that. Every attempt will be made to contact you before the end of the 30-day period thereafter customer pieces may be disposed of with n further notice or refund to customer
