"Open Studio" (previously known as Paint Your Own!) is time set aside just for you to drop in and paint on canvas, ceramics or even a wine or beer glass! This time is truly valuable for those artists who want to paint thier own masterpiece but who just don't have the space or the material to do so. Smudge provides you with all that and more! Come to Smudge and take your time savouring being an artist in our bright and inspiring studio. Best of all, when you're done, we even clean up after you - how great is that!?! All you have to do is create!
These drop in times vary depending upon what we have going on in the studio, but should be confirmed by Monday for the upcoming week (and we might even sprinkle a few more times in here and there). Please continue to check our times as our calendar is continuously being updated.
Choose to create your own masterpiece on a blank canvas, or choose to create one of ours on an outlined canvas. You can even choose to get a little messy in our splash room (see below).
We don't have thousands of items to choose from, only the best, which makes it so much easier for you! Choose from kid's piggy banks, various plates, mugs, large cookie jars and even home decorations. We also have ceramic-glass fusion pieces. Contact us for more details.
Hand-painted wine or beer glasses make any drink more delicious! Create your very own unique drinking glass to enjoy your favourite beverage or to give as a very special gift.
Prices vary between $19 and $59 depending on the piece that you choose and include:
All materials (palettes, brushes, paints, etc.)
Use of our beautiful Studio
Glazing, Firing and Curing as necessary
