With the holiday season right around the corner, it's time to start planning your parties! Our party room is the perfect place to host your next get-together. Whether you're looking to spend time with family, friends, or co-workers, this area of the studio provides a private space where you can create together. For the rest of September, we are waiving our party room fee ($35) when you book a party for the months of November and December. This is the perfect opportunity to schedule a night of painting, glass fusing, or succulent garden creating in time for holiday giving!
Looking to make a set of holiday dishes and want to get the whole family involved? Reserve the party room for your family and let everyone contribute to a piece of the set! You can let each painter pick their own colors or choose a color scheme for everyone to use to unify the pieces, while still keeping the individuality of each person's unique design. Matching sets are fun to create, but you can also choose to have everyone make their own pieces. The holiday season is a great time to get your family together in an environment where all ages are encouraged to relax and be creative!
Holiday Work Event
The holidays are a wonderful time to celebrate the work your team has done throughout the year. Our parties provide a relaxed and creative environment and can even serve as a great team building event. Food and drinks are always allowed in the studio, so bring your favorites and enjoy your time together! Pottery painting, glass fusing, glass painting, and succulent garden creating are all fun ways to bring the office together outside of work.
Unwind & Spend Time With Friends
This season is filled with cheer, but all of the running around and planning can be stressful. Schedule time to relax with friends- bring snacks and we'll take care of the rest! Making art with the people in your life is a great way to relax and spend time together- and cookies and ornament painting are a fun combination! Create holiday gifts or something for yourself without the added stress of organizing and cleaning up. Our party room provides a private space of the studio and we take care of the cleanup so you can focus on making art spending time with good friends.
Call or stop in during the rest of September to book your November and December events without the party room fee! 216-292-4844

Skip the gift cards and get the special couple a personalized, sentimental and timeless gift: a handcrafted wedding plate! We have so many artists coming through the studio creating wedding plates, platters, and even matching mugs for newly weds. These heart warming keepsakes are so special because they are all functional (food safe, microwave, and dishwasher safe) as well as designed specially and hand painted by someone meaningful. So we collected a few of our favorite wedding designs to inspire and spark creativity for your next loved ones wedding!
1.) And They Lived Happily Ever After
Love these designs but not feeling creative? Think they'd be perfect for you're favorite bride to be? You're in luck! These to designs above are easily customizable with the couple's names and date of the wedding! Hands on Pottery works with an amazing artist that creates these 2 masterpieces! If there's something else you have in mind, our artists will work with you to create something you'll love!
2.) His & Her Matching Mugs
Matching mug sets are a cute and unique wedding gift!
3.) A Plate Is Worth A Thousand Words!
There are so many ways to design a wedding plate whether it's the newly weds last name, a picture of their engagement, a cartoon of the couple, or a classic design on a platter. The styles range from cute and quirky to clean and classy! Our studio assistants can help you every step of the way from the brainstorming process all the way to the color choosing. We have our 'print, trace, and print' technique to help with tracing specific designs and lettering, we have fun stamps, and a large selection of stencils to give you all the tools you need to make a phenomenal piece of art. We even have a writing request option. If desired, when you're done painting background and designs, one of our artists will help you with intricate writing to finish off your masterpiece. We love to help!
4.) Get The Whole Gang Involved!
A great idea for bachelorette/ bachelor parties, wedding receptions, and family get-togethers. This takes a bit of planning ahead of time, as the pieces need to be painted and fired before signing. Then, a special paint pen can be used for all the guests to sign hassle-free. The final step is baking this paint on in your oven at home. It makes a great gift for the bride and groom or as a memento of a special wedding anniversary, as each person can leave a personal message on the special day.
