Frequently asked questions
When can I pick up my ceramic piece?
Usually we are on a 7 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 to pick up your pieces 7 days after you paint.
Do I need to make a reservation?
You can walk in anytime! We are open everyday and even on some holidays.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
