Can’t wait to see how it comes out!

We’ve picked a bunch of great books and pieces for Story Time in October at Your Creation Station. Each Thursday morning at 10:30 AM, we’ll read a story and then paint a piece of pottery to match the characters in the book.

We’ve also added two Saturday Story Times for families that can’t make it to a Thursday Morning Story Time. If that wasn’t enough…we’re having a Pajama Time Story Time too! Saturday Morning Story Time starts bright and early at 9:30 AM while our Pajama Story Time is in the evening so you can go straight to be after.

How To Participate

Its easy to attend a Story Time at Your Creation Station. All you need to do is sign up online and then show up. During sign up, you’ll select the number of spaces you’d like and if there are any options for choosing what piece to paint, you can select your choice then.

If you’re not sure if you can make it and don’t want to sign up before hand…no problem…walk ins are always welcome. Pieces and spaces are sometimes limited and available on a first come first serve basis, so if you want to be sure you have a spot, we encourage you to sign up ahead of time.

Saturday Morning Story Time

It may seem early for a Saturday but after the story, you’ll have the whole rest of the day. Find our how the tooth fairy manages to evade all the toothless children trying to catch her. Story starts at 9:00 AM.

Pajama Time Story Time

Come to story time dressed in your pajamas! We’re reading How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight and painting a dinosaur. After your finished, you can go home or go right to bed. Story starts at 6:30 PM.

Pottery Painting Kits Delivered Right To Your Door!

Our long time supplier recently put together a selection of pottery painting kits available to ship straight from their warehouse, right to your door allowing us to offer you more choices for painting pottery at home. Each kit contains a themed selection of three or four pieces of pottery, nine – two ounce bottles of paint, a set of five brushes and set of instructions. There are six options available, four with pottery paint that get fired and two with acrylic paints. Some of the items are pieces you’ve seen on our shelves before and some are new.

Pottery Painting Kits – Glazed

Each of the kits include nine – two ounce bottles of pottery paint (aka ceramic underglaze), a set of five brushes, three or four pieces of pottery and a set of instructions. The colors included in the kits are: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink, Tan, Black. Everthing in these kits need to be glazed and fired after you’re finished finished. You can drop them off during our scheduled Pickup and Drop Off times.

Pottery Painting Kits – Acrylic

These two kits come with acrylic paints and don’t need to be fired. Each kit comes with the bisque pictured, a set of brushes, 8 colors, a bottle of clear sealer and a set of instructions. Included colors are: Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple, Pink, Tan, Black, White & Clear Sealer. No extra trip to our studio, or anywhere else, is needed. These kits also make great gifts for family or friends who don’t live close enough for Curbside Pickup.

How It Works

Pick the paint kits you want, add them to your cart and complete the check out process. When your pottery project arrives, open it up and dive in. Each kit is self contained and contains everything you’ll need. Remember, there are two types of kits, one with acrylic paints and one with ceramics paints. The kits with the ceramic paints need to be brought to the studio to be fired. Please note there are no substitutions, returns or exchanges on these items.

Shipped Directly To You

You’ll have a chance to enter billing and a shipping information during check out. If you would like to send a kit to someone else, enter a separate shipping address but make sure the billing address is the same as the billing address on the credit card you use to pay. Only one shipping address per order. Shipping within the continental United States only. Once we receive your order, send it directly to your shipping address and send you a message via email with tracking information.

When to Expect Your Kit’s Arrival

We generally receive shipments within a day or two of placing the order but please expect up to five days to receive your order. This is a new service for us and our partner and is outside the scope of how we normally operate and do things. There are a couple more steps and it may take a day or two longer. From experience, orders placed earlier in the week tend to arrive by the weekend. We’ll send you tracking information as it becomes available

After You Are Finished Painting

If you purchased a kit with acrylic paints, make sure your colors are completely dry and apply a coat, or two, of the clear sealer included with the kit. Once its dry, its done. Please, take a picture and post it on our Facebook page. We want to see how they came out!

Dropping Piece Off For Firing

If you purchased a kit with ceramic paints, you’ll need to bring it to our studio to be glazed and fired. We are open for pickup and drop off in three to four hour blocks every day but Monday. Please see our temporary schedule for more specific times.

Curbside Pick Up and Drop Off
Curbside Pick Up and Drop Off

When you come to drop off, there will be a table out front with with a box. Place your pieces there and we’ll bring them into the studio. Don’t be afraid to wrap everything up in the box you got them in and bring them over. Please include your name and order number from your receipt on the bag or box you drop them off in. Also, either paint or write your name/initials/symbol on the piece. Don’t forget to year so you remember when you made it. If you write your name and year in pencil or Sharpie, we’ll go over it with the special pencil as the studio. The easier it is for us to identify your order as yours, the easier it will be for us to get it to you.

Picking Up Fired Pieces

Once we receive your pieces, we’ll glaze and fire them. Lately (Mar/Apr/May 2020) we’ve been firing on Saturday for Sunday pickup. So, if you want your piece by Sunday, drop it off by Saturday at 4. After its fired, we’ll wrap them up, put them on the table outside by the door and send you an email and text message its ready. Pretty much the same as drop off but in reverse.

Mythological and Fantastical Creations

Your imagination is the limit when painting any of the ceramic bisque shown here. You can opt to go with traditional unicorn colors, that’s anything with glitter, or go your own route and use a rainbow of colors! Either way you can’t go wrong.

Unicorns, mermaids, gnomes and wizards are among the types of pieces you can expect to see at Your Creation Station. Our inventory changes from time to time so you can always look forward to seeing something new.
