Frequently Asked Questions


Can I bring adult beverages?

Do I need to make a reservation for the open studio?

Groups of four or less are welcome to drop in any time during open hours for our walk-in art activities in our open studio. Reservations are always recommended for groups of five or more.

Weekends and school holidays can be very busy, therefore, we suggest making a reservation to guarantee your table, especially if your group is of five or more.  There will be a $20 deposit required on all open studio table reservations with a 48 hour minimum cancellation period for full refund. This deposit will be deducted from your final total at time of checkout and a table or tables will be reserved for your group for the time slot specified.


Where is the best place to park?

We have street parking available as well as a parking garage behind our building. You can enter through the back entrance if you park in the parking garage.  If you are doing a quick pickup/dropoff, you can pull up to our back gate for a few minutes to come in and pickup/dropoff.


How much time should I plan to spend at the studio?

In our open studio area, you can come in any time and stay as long as you like. We do not charge for time. On average, our guests spend an hour and a half to two hours. Kids under age five will probably be finished in 45 minutes. We have had groups who spend all day with us especially when working on larger pieces or more detailed pieces. The majority of our canvas designs are 2 hours or less, with some designs up to four hours estimated time. If you are working on a project and want to go grab lunch, no problem. There are many great places in the area to walk to for great food. If you want to order food at your table in our studio, we have partnered with some restaurants who will deliver it to your table.
