Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to make a reservation?
    You can walk in anytime! We are open everyday and even on some holidays. However, there are some instances where we are fully booked and cannot accept walk-ins (mostly during holidays, weekends and school breaks). A reservation is recommended during these times. Use our convenient online booking to book your table!
  • What can I paint?
    We have over 200 unique pieces that suit all ages and needs, such as mugs, plates, seasonal items and even popular characters. We even have canvases you can paint.
  • Do I need to be an artist to come in?
    Absolutely not! We welcome everyone to join us here at Art Haven. If you have no prior experience we have many wonderful tools to help you get started as well as very helpful creative assistants.
  • Are your paints foodsafe?
    We ensure that all underglaze and glaze paints are free of lead and acid. Additionally each piece painted with underglaze paint is glazed and fired which seals the product, making it food safe.We do offer an acrylic paint that is not glazed or fired and is not food safe. This paint is used for products that are not intended to be used for food or drinking purposes such as canvases.
  • Can I put my ceramic piece in the microwave or dishwasher?
    Every piece is unique and since they are handpainted we recommend handwashing the pieces. They are also not microwave safe.
  • Can I commission you to paint something for me?
    We welcome all requests for commissioned work. Just give us a call and we will give you a quote. All our artists are trained and exhibited.
  • When can I pick up my ceramic piece?
    Usually we are on a 7-10 day turn around time. At times, during popular holidays – Christmas, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day – it may be extended a bit, but most of the time you can expect a call to pick up your pieces 7-10 days after you paint.
  • Can I send someone else to pick up my ceramic piece?
    Yes of course! The only thing you need to pick up a piece is a receipt and a description of the item. You can even send someone else to pick it up using a picture of the receipt.
  • How much is it?
    We do not charge studio fees. Our prices vary depending on the item and our stock changes all the time. The price is on the bottom of each piece and it includes everything but the tax - paint, glazing and firing are all included, and you can paint for as long as you want. The price range is $14-$100 which includes mugs, plates, bowls, lots of figurines, banks and many more items. The price just depends on what you pick, larger items or more detailed items are more expensive. Our canvases come in two sizes; small is $28 and the large one is $35.
  • Do you welcome large groups?
    We welcome anyone here at Arthaven. If you have a group larger than 6 please give us a call so that we make sure you have the space needed when you come in. We can host up to 50 guests.
  • Can I bring young children?
    SInce all our paints are non-toxic and tools quite safe, all ages are welcome. We have pieces for any age.
  • What if I get thirsty?
    Well, you're in luck! We serve some of the best bubbe tea around and we even have a liquor license so that you can get some vino inspiration. We serve, bubble tea, smoothies, slushies, wine, beer, soft drinks and some hot drinks.
  • Can you come to me?
    We offer a mobile studio service. All we need is a call from you and we will be able to give you a quote.
  • I have another question
    If you need any help or are looking for a quote, give us a call on (613) 592 0196. You can also walk in and someone will be able to help you.
