DRESS FOR MESS! We use professional materials and art supplies which means paint may stain clothing, shoes and jackets. We have aprons at the studio to borrow, but wet paint may be lurking around any corner. Please note, even if you are not doing a painting workshop, you may still get paint on you.
4Cats is not responsible for damage to clothing or personal belongings. Please leave the ball gowns and tuxedos at home.
ARTWORK PICKUP Clay wheel creations take approximately 2 weeks to be fully dried and fired in the kiln.
Please check the Clay Status link on the top menu to see if your clay is ready to be picked up. Participants WILL NOT receive a call or email when their clay has been fired.
