What a relaxing, fun thing to do! The staff from the old reviews must not be there anymore because each time I have gone there, I have been greeted and offered a lesson. Try the toothbrush paint splatter technique for some abstract designs. Shout out to Emelia who creates a fun welcoming atmosphere.

I do this a lot because my husband wants the kids to paint a mug for him every year for Father's Day. I guess it's been at least seven years now. The Edina location is so close to my home but I won't go. I drive all the way to St. Paul now every year.
The staff treats you like you've just barged into their personal home and started painted on their $3,000.00 dining room table. I've also tried the place in Eagen (not this franchise) and it isn't much better. Go to St. Paul. It's not great, but at least you don't get treated like a criminal rather than a customer. Try to deal with the staff in Edina and you'll just be shaking your head in disbelief and thinking ""wow..."" over and over again.
DO NOT GO! Prices are outragous, but the service is worse. I had the exact same service as the last reviewer--no acknowledgement from staff, supplies are worn, glaze is dried up and used up and to add insult to injury, after spending a couple of hours working on a great piece for a gift--I got a call that they broke it. They should have compensated me for my time and disappointment, but they were contemptuous, defensive and unprofessional. Not worth the money or the unpleasant experience.

I went to paint your plate with a couple of friends on a Saturday. I paint pottery frequently, but I had never been here before. They were busy, but we were not even greeted by a staff member. As a matter of fact, no staff members even talked to us until we were paying. Which brings me to the prices, it is quite costly compared to other places in the area, which are in my opinion, far superior.
To top it all off, one of my pieces was broken and clearly glued back together. When it was brought to the attention of a staff member, she told me that it was not her fault and that nobody that works there would do that without informing me. I will NEVER go to paint your plate again. What a disappointing experience.
