We provide:

 Paper products: plates, napkins, and forks.

 Invitations: collect them at the studio.

 A Staff person will greet and facilitate the entire party from start to finish.

 A fabulous party experience!!

In Bethesda Only:  We are now offering cupcakes from Fancy Cakes by Leslie for $2.40 each.  Cupcake orders will be taken at the time of your reservation.

How It Works:

*  10 person minimum

    The maximum number of guests is 20 for Cleveland Park and 28 for Bethesda.  This includes ALL guests, parents, family, and friends.

* Parties are 1.5 hrs. long

*  The First step is to call the studio to speak to a staff person about availability and openings.

*  We then fill out a reservation form and take a payment of $65, which holds that day/time slot. This Reservation Fee guarantees you that date and time with us.  This does not go towards the final cost of the party.  It is in addition to the cost of the pottery.

We will call you two weeks prior to the party to receive the pieces you have selected for the party. 

*  We will call you one week prior for a final confirmation of kids and to ask for a list of the kids attending the party.  The names may be emailed to us, or you may call the studio directly with the information.  If you email us, please also include which studio you are having the party at.  We write the names on the bags that the kids color on when they first arrive. 

*  We use these bags to package their piece in after firing.  This makes for very easy distribution.

On the day of the party:

*  You will be greeted by our party facilitator

*  You will have a table to place cake, food, beverages and gifts.  We will help you set up!

*  As your guests come in they will be seated at the party table(s).  Each guest will have a large paper bag to color on until all guests arrive. (about 20 mins)

*  Once everyone has arrived, the staff person facilitating the party will provide an introduction to All Fired Up and the painting process.

*  Children will select one piece from the preselected pieces.

*  The staff person will distribute paints and kids will start painting.

*  We will mark on each piece the children's name or initals and a symbol which identifies the whole group as one party

*  When kids are finished painting, the staff will collect all the pieces and clear the table(s)

*  Drinks, food and cake can be served (we ask no pizza is served because grease stains the pottery, then paint will not adhere)

*  If time permits, kids will continue to draw on their party bags until they are picked up.  Drawing on our huge chalkboard is also another option.

 In 10 days your party pieces will be ready for pickup.  You will be called as soon as your party is completely packaged.   

 Each piece will be individually wrapped with the child’s name for easy distribution.

• Three weeks advance notice is suggested for all parties to ensure time and table availability.

• The maximum number of guests is 20 for Cleveland Park and 28 for Bethesda. If you plan
   on having a larger group, please call to arrange a private party in our studios.
