Service Description

Includes any item priced at $34 or less which covers more than half of our vast pottery selection. We have quite a bit so we do recommend you and your guest arrive 10 minutes early to to select their piece, You don’t need to be concerned about the kids choosing items that are more expensive. We’ll tell the kids if the item is outside the range (unless you give us the nod), so you won’t have to turn them down. After the party we’ll bake the painted items to make the pint super glossy and durable. They are ready after 5-7 days and we’ll call you when they are ready for pickup. A Thank You card is included with each finished item. In most cases the host picks up all items and distributes them, but if you let us know we can accommodate individual pickup. Any items not picked up after 3 weeks must be picked up by the host. ​Also comes with... ♥ Private party room ♥ 15 preselected paint colours to select from ♥ Invitation & Thank you cards provided for your guests ♥ Paint Expert Host


Cancellation Policy

PARTY POLICY: -Deposit: All parties have a non refundable deposit of $50 to hold the date and time. We do not reschedule/move private parties without significant notice (1 week). If you cancel you will need to re-book and your deposit is lost as we held that spot and turned away other bookings. - Parents and other non-participating guests: Space is limited! Please communicate to parents of your participating guests that this is a drop-off event. We have limited capacity for extra parents. You are welcome to have one or two parents assist you with your party but we find parties work best when mom and dad of the guests have left. If a parent is going to stay behind they will need to spend their time creating something themselves in the main studio while they wait for the conclusion of the party. This is also true of any relatives that maybe joining you. This excludes the early party slot from 10am-11:45am before opening that is recommended for younger painters (6 years and younger). - Confirming your guest count: The Guest of Honour is included in your guest count. Please confirm your final guest count with us 48 hours in advance of your party. If we don't hear from you we will plan your party around the original guest count you provided at time of booking. WORKSHOP CANCELLATIONS (wheels and clay hand building): you may cancel your spot with a 48 hr notice, your deposit amount will turn into store credit that can be used anytime for walk-in painting or you may reschedule another possible class, your credit will be valid for up to one month. If you reschedule for a class and if cancelled a second time your deposit will be invalid going forward. We appreciate a 48hr notice to avoid any unnecessary set up, if we are not notified your credit will be invalid. Deposits are non refundable if not notified 48 hours prior and will be used to pay for the instructors dedicated time. LATE FOR A WORKSHOP: We start our classes on time, so please don’t be late. We understand that sometimes there are unforeseeable issues. These things happen. Do try your best to not disturb the class any further once you have arrived. If you are 5-10 minutes late to a workshop it makes it really hard on the instructor and the class. Please avoid this by arriving 5-10 minutes early. The classroom itself will open up 5 minutes before the start of the class so you have time to grab an apron and settle in. CLAY DAMAGE: Kiln clay explosions are unlikely but they do happen. Refunds are not provided for damaged clay due to kiln explosions. Please note each artist is responsible for ensuring pieces are securely attached and follow the necessary steps in order to avoid breakage and air pockets. Main Ideas is not responsible for repair or replacement to clay pieces. LATE FOR WORKSHOP: If you are more than 15 minutes late to a workshop you are just not going to have enough time to complete the necessary steps in the project and you may not be able to join in. Understand that we cannot offer a refund or credit if you are late and unable to join the class. We require 48 hours notice for any cancellations and transfers and could have had another artist in your place. Thank you for your understanding.
