Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need an appointment?
No. Walk-ins for painting are welcome and assistance is always available for beginners. We do ask for an RSVP for special events such as diva night to accommodate seating and
How long will it take me to make a piece?
That depends on the item you choose and the detail you want to add. The more depth of color is determined by the layers of paint. Many customers return and work on pieces more than one sitting. If the simpler the better is your style you can be in and out in about two hours.
How much does it cost?
There are some small pieces for $3.00 all the way up to large vases and platters for $75. We have something for everyone. Additional cost may include special element paints at $3 per item and a studio fee for uncompleted projects left in the studio for more than 180 days at $5
When will my one-of-a-kind piece of ceramic artwork be ready?
Our turn around time on the pieces range from seven to ten days. Extra time may be needed due to larger pieces and holidays. One of our staffers will call you when it is ready or you can give us a ring to check on it.
Do I have to pay the cost of the item and all the studio fees if I decide to use multiple sessions?
Yes. We require all pieces paid in full upon your first visit. No pieces are fired until paid in full. Unfinished pieces left more than six months between visits may have additional fees.
What if I’m not creative?
We can help you with that! (Even though we don’t believe you). We have a creative staff, books, special element paints, and tips and tricks throughout the studio… and of course there is always Google!
Can I bring snacks?
Yes. We snack all day at the studio! Just remember to keep hands clean while handling the bisque. Ceramix 101 also has snacks and beverages for purchase.
What if I complete my project, but do not need it for two weeks? Or… what if I am visiting the area and leaving before the item is out of the kiln?
Any pieces left more that 90 days are subject to a storage fee – otherwise we will gladly hold your piece until you are ready to pick it up. We also offer shipping for our out-of-town guests.
