A Tradition...

Tis' the season for family traditions! We feel blessed to be a part of so many holiday memories! It has been exciting to hear the stories from our wonderful customers about their first time painting in our store and the amazing gifts they have created over the last 18 years! In fact, we had a young woman come in to paint with her little sister, we giggled with her over stories of items her parents painted with her hand prints when she was just months old and found ourselves in disbelief that she now was old enough to bring her little sister in for some painting memories...! Time flies!! You are making us feel loved up Olympia!!!!! This studio has become so much more than just a "paint your own ceramic" store. We have watched our customers grow and change and we have relished every moment of it!

We have also met many new painters and have frequently over heard the phrase, "let's do this every year!" We love that. What is better than a hand made gift?? What is better than decorating your Christmas tree and and reminiscing about the ornaments your children painted years before?? If you haven't yet, make us a part of your families' holiday traditions!

Keep us in mind for the rest of the year as well! We have the perfect space for a "girl's night out", a team building "conference", a birthday party (any age), a date night, a parent child art escape, baby showers, bridal showers (and registry), your school group project, a commemorative gift, coffee group, work party, themed event, a perfect alternative to a movie or bowling, a fresh creative idea, or anything you can think of!!! Remember we have a HUGE selection... TONS of ideas for easy painting projects...ESPRESSO...APPETIZERS...BEVERAGES of all, wine, soda,tea,etc... Call us to book your next social event! We also have the space for a quiet day of creating by yourself, if you prefer a more intimate setting...WE LOOK FORWARD TO CREATING WITH YOU SOON!

All you need to know about Olympia's one stop, paint until you drop, holiday fun shop!

This is our 18th year bringing holiday cheer to our wonderful friends and loyal customers. We love this time of year! We are blessed to see many familiar faces and to meet our new comers! The phone has been ringing off the hook and we are noticing a lot of the same questions being asked... 

1-Can I make a reservation??

YES, we accept reservations! If you are coming in and you would like a guaranteed spot, CALL US! (360) 705-2103. We are able to accompany most group sizes and we do our best to get all our painters in!

If our studio is packed and we have a walk in group, we will take your phone number, send you off to our favorite downtown stores to browse and give you a call the second we have a spot available for you!

We are available to host large groups during specific dates and times, call for deposit information (which goes towards the price of the pieces you paint. We only charge a studio rental fee if we are opening early or staying late for your group). The Painted Plate is the perfect place to throw a party... baby shower, office holiday party, birthday party or just a fun get together! Think of us when you think of parties! We are able to help you create a one of a kind memory with you and your friends!

2-How expensive is it??

We like to equate an experience at our studio with that of going out to a movie, or going bowling...except you wind up with a one of a kind piece of art to keep or give as a gift...! Our prices range from $6 up to $65.

Plates start at $14 and go up to $36, while a gorgeous large platter ranges from $30-$65, ornaments are $8 each or 4/ $30, our huge bulb ornaments are $12 each (perfect for handprints!), kids figurines/banks/boxes range from $10-$30, mugs go from $18-$26...we have a GIANT selection and we are constantly finding new fun items and design ideas! You really need to see our wall of pottery to grasp how many options there are available to choose from!

3-What are your hours??

We have new extended holiday hours Mon-Thurs 10am-9pm, Fri and Sat 10am-11pm and Sundays 11am-7pm.

4-Do you have food and drinks available?? 

We sell several delicious appetizer platters (from 4.50 - 6.50) and large party platter for $20. We have wonderful holiday beverages for sale, egg nog-chai, peppermint mochas, spiced apple cider, as well as an assortment of wine, hard cider and Stella Artois beer (all in the $3-$6 range).

5-How do kids parties work??

The cost for a kids party is based on the number of painters. We have several different options, the basics are $12/child or $15/child (party pricing is for groups of 8+ painters). The kids arrive and we usually allow a little time for them to all settle and chit chat. We then show them the awesome items they can choose from (animal figurines, mug, plate, bowl, ornaments, etc). Once the kids choose their items we give painting instructions and then set them loose on their art. Once they have finished we organize everything for you (even bag it all together for easy pick up), clean up and you are welcome to serve treats and open presents. We offer ice cream or Italian sodas for $2 per painter when you are doing one of the packages. We also serve kids appetizer group platters for $20 (serves up to 5). The pieces are ready to be picked up in 5 days! If a parent or sibling would like to paint during your party (and we have the space) they are welcome to paint anything in the store at 10% off!  

6-Not able to make it in before Christmas??

NO PROBLEM!! We sell Painted Plate gift certificates in any price increment you wish. These are able to be used just like cash in our store and make the PERFECT stocking stuffer!!! Buy a gift certificate for Mom to have a girls night out, for Dad to have a fun day out with his kids, for a special person who loves to be creative...and you are struggling to find the perfect gift for! The studio inspires the artist within each of us and EVERYONE can find something fun to paint. Our staff has an amazing amount of knowledge about pottery painting and we love to help our customers create one of a kind pieces.

7-How do I become a frequent painter member??

It is easy, just come in to paint and when you are filling out your paperwork, our staff will show you the simple process, register by phone number or email. We are able to send our VIP's special coupons and discounts. Every time you come in to paint, check into our system and on your 6th check-in you get to pick a free item to paint (we have a great selection of signature pieces to choose from).

8-What if I don't think I am an artist??

Do not underestimate the appeal of stripes and polka dots!! We have a bunch of fun techniques that ANYONE can use to wind up LOVING their pottery...Come check us out!! Ask about our addiction to contact paper stencils and the wonders of a white background!
