Kids Birthday Parties

Our studio and private party room is perfect for your special day, and the experienced staff will make it the easiest party you've ever had!

The general format of a party is:

1. Welcome and instructions from Crafty Pots staff

2. Painters select ceramics. For the popular Picasso package, the guests choose from a special selection of cute animal figures, located near the party room, all included at no extra charge. For a Toddler party, the painters choose a tile or salad plate. For Gold and Practical, the painters will choose freely from the main studio shelved up to the limit. The party host is always able to allow

3. Staff assist the painters with colour selection

4. Painting generally takes an hour to an hour and 15 minutes for older children, less for young children

5. Food, cake (happy Birthday singing), if desired

6. Opening presents, if desired

Entertainment booked by the party host (a magician, clown, etc.) is welcome with prior notice for party room events only (not studio parties).

All party packages comes with great extras such as Invitations and Thank You cards for all the guests. The birthday child gets a special present when picking up the finished items: a Family VIP pass for 10% discount for up to four painters. Please see packages for details.

Food is not included in the packages, sorry, and the host will need to bring all plates and cutlery. We allow food such as pizza, snacks and cake at no extra charge. We take care of the cleanup, that’s a big plus for most hosts, no fuss, no muss.

Takeout food, catered, fried or fragrant food cannot be served out of consideration for the other painters in the studio. If such food is brought in after all, especially if it contains meat (pepperoni pizza is ok) then all garbage must be taken home as we cannot store garbage containing meat until it is picked up by the city, possibly a week later.

Please note that Crafty Pots is not guaranteed to be nut-free.

For studio parties, the space will be shared with other painters and as such extra consideration must be shown.

Reserving the entire studio for a private event is possible outside of really busy periods. The price for a full studio is variable and will depend on the expected level of activity that’d otherwise take place. Full studio booking is only possible during the first time slot of the day which is 11am to 1pm.

To make a reservation, visit us in the studio, call us at 905-477-0002, or click the button below this section to complete an online party request.

A $50 non-refundable deposit is required for all birthday party packages to lock in the date and time. Deposit is applied to the final bill.

During the weekend the party room can be booked for parties starting 11am, 2pm or 5pm. For all other days you can set your own hours. Studio parties may start anytime, except for 11am, 2pm and 5pm as this is when the party room parties start.

It depends on the number of participants, and their age:

If the party has participants 6 years old or younger, the party room must be booked as such painters needs room to run around and be happy and noisy and we love that.

If there are more than 10 participants, then the party room must be booked.

Parties booked in the party room have fewer restrictions than studio parties. The spacious party room seats up to 25, and there is a minimum charge of 10 participants. Please be sure to see the notes about the kind of food we permit (pizza, snack, cake etc.)

Larger parties are possible when there are no attending guest parents, but guest parents may stay if desired, they may participate in the party as long as it does not turn into an event for the whole extended family.

We’ve unfortunately had parties with ten children paid for and thirty adults using the space as well. That’s not ok….

Parties booked in the colourful main studio may have from 6 to 9 participants, with a minimum charge of 6 participants. The party is guaranteed two tables put together where all the painters will be seated and and we guarantee there will be some space for food and presents. We will usually provide a separate table for this, but if the studio is very busy, a separate table for food and presents is not guaranteed.

For studio parties, the space will be shared with other painters and as such extra consideration must be shown. The studio parties are expected to be drop-off where the parents do not stay. We are very accommodating and understand kids are happy and noisy, but studio parties are limited to 9 or less painters that are at least 7 years old, reasonably well behaved. For studio parties the rules regarding food are not flexible.

Parking is excellent, there’s a large parking lot right behind the studio, street parking is free and Main Street has three other large parking lots within minutes of walking from the studio.

All painted ceramics must be picked up at the same time.

Tax is not included in the prices listed on this page.

A 10% gratuity will be added to the final amount for party room parties and to go parties, but you are welcome to change or even remove the amount.

For parties using a birthday package, the host must pay the entire bill. There can be no individual payment. Individual payment is only accepted for a Guaranteed Seating booking.
