Frequently asked questions
How does it work if you want to come to the studio and make something?
Can I have a birthday party at the studio?
Parties of all kinds have been held at the studio. We have an events director to help you with that. You can call the studio or contact us through our website.
Is there an age limit for activities at the studio?
The age of a participants depends on the activities. A 4 or 5-year-old can paint on ceramics with their parent but is too young for the other activities. Even though most of our classes and events are family friendly, it is always best to call the studio to confirm the age in question.
Can I have a team building event at the studio?
Absolutely! Our events director can help you with that.
What if I want to hold a fundraising event at your studio.
How many people can the studio accommodate?
If it is 2-hour event, depending on the type of activity, we can accommodate around 30 people. If the fundraiser is one that goes on all day and there is a steady flow of people in and out of the studio, that number changes.
Do I have to come back to pick up the projects I made?
Most of the items made at the studio must be fired in the kiln to be complete. But the mosaics and glass painting projects can be taken home the same day.
Does MIY give group discounts?
It depends on the activity and the size of the group.
Are gift certificates available?
Yes. Call the studio or contact us through our website and we will help you with that.

Yes. We have many different clays to choose from. We also sell clay and glass tools.
Does MIY fire for ceramist who are non-members for the studio?
