Classes and Art Party Ideas

Whether you’re interested in creating a fine art piece, handcrafted book or unique decor item, we’d love to show you how.

It can be hard to schedulea class timethat works for everyone, so we decided to offer lessons that are more like art parties than scheduled classes. That means youdecide what type of class you’d like to take, find some friends to take it with you (a minimum of 3 people unless otherwise noted) then contact our team to set up a mutually convenient date, time and place – could be your place, ours or somewhere else.

The cost is usually $55 per person, although when arranging a custom class for 1 – 2 persons or for a large group, the fee is negotiable. All classparticipants receive a 10% discount voucher applicable to a future purchase of specialty paper and craft supplies.

So have a look at what we offer, get together a group of 3 or more participants and let’s talk about when and where to play!
