Q. How old do children have to be to enjoy a party at Glazed Expressions?
A. Our parties involve an art activity and so we recommend our parties for kids turning 3 or older. Our "Junior Pottery Party" is our option for kids turning 5 years of age and younger, is 2 hours in length and includes pizza for all.
Q. What is provided in the cost of my party?
A. All materials and instruction and dedicated host or hostess. Use of our party room or studio as applicable. Firing of pieces. Individual packaging of pieces for party participants. If you choose a Pizza Party Option, we provide 2 slices of choice of pepperoni or cheese-only pizza and one fruit punch per participant. We provide plain recyclable plates and napkins.
Q. Can I bring a cake?
A. Of course! What's a party without cake? Don't forget to bring special plates and forks for your treat.
Q. Can I bring munchies?
A. Of course, but we would prefer you keep it to fruit and veg trays and non-greasy chips - pottery doesn't like grease! While our most popular party time slot is 12:30 pm, bear in mind that if you book a PIZZA PARTY we serve the pizza at the end of the activity - advise parents of younger children that you'll have munchies only and pizza is served at the end of 2 hours.
Q. What is the maximum number of participants you can accommodate?
A. Our studio will seat 40 in total. Our private party room seats 8-12 dependent on the age of participants.
Q. Can I specifically reserve the party room?
A. Pottery Painting Parties are automatically booked into our party room unless the numbers deem it uncomfortable. In this case you'll be accommodated in our more spacious studio. For safety reasons, Glass Fusing Parties are held in the main studio in our dedicated Glass Area.
Q. Will there be other people at the studio during my party?
A. Yes, our studio is always open for drop-in to everyone during our open hours. If you would like to reserve the entire studio on a Monday or Tuesday evening, please contact us for availability. Minimum charge for 12 participants will apply.
Q. What if I have to cancel?
A. Our cancellation rate is almost non-existent and that's with the rather flexible policy of cancellation with no penalty. We love our customers and we understand if something bad happens and you have to cancel.
Q. What if a party participant that I expected to come, doesn't show up?
A. Above the minimum charge of 6 participants, you only pay for those who attend the party.
Q. Can I decorate with streamers and balloons? Unfortunately our studio is not set up to be decorated for parties and balloons are a bit awkward around breakables. A small table top display is perfectly fine. We also provide a festive table cloth in our party room and the walls are decorated with lots of inspiration!
Q. What if I have other questions?
A. We're a phone call away ... 905-877-2224.
