Frequently Asked Questions

Does handmade equal perfect?


Handmade does not equal perfect. Since all of our creations are handcrafted, there may be natural variations and blemishes that are not flaws, but are characteristics that make it a truly unique piece.




What should I wear?


We provide aprons, but we recommend that you wear casual and comfortable, paint-friendly clothes and shoes.




Can I bring my own wine?


For a Private Hosted Party, the Host is allowed to bring alcohol for their guests. The Host is responsible for the alcohol consumption of their guests. All guests at Private Hosted Events serving alcohol, must be 21 years of age and older.




Can I bring my own snacks or drinks?


If hosting a party at our Studio, you are more than welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks. We do keep you busy with your painting, so you probably want to keep it to a minimum. We ask that you clean up after yourself as well.




Do I have to pick my technique ahead of time?


All of our parties require pre-registration so that we have plenty of time to prep and customize your materials. When you contact us, we can walk you through the different options if you are still undecided.




What type of paints do you use?


All of our paints are non-toxic, water based acrylics.




Can I have a Private Event at the Dirty Pour Studio?


Absolutely! Private Events can be scheduled any day or time. Contact us to reserve your spot.




Can I schedule a Birthday Pour Party for my child?


Yes! We love to have kid’s parties. Contact us to set it up! We offer a brithday package: $265 for up to 8 children and $32 for each additional child or adult. We will reserve studio space exclusively for your party for up to 2 hours. You're welcome to bring snacks, cake, and gifts for a complete party experience. You can also add on a key chain or pendant for guests to have made from their acrylic skin for $10 per person. Resin can be included in your package for an additional $25 per person.




Do you offer refunds?


Due to the custom nature of our Parties, registration fees are non-refundable. Registration cancellations made at least 72 hours in advance of a party will be given a credit for a future party.




Who are Pouraholics?


They are our VIP’s (Very Impassioned Pourers)! For a $20 fee you too, can become one. Your fee covers a charm bracelet that we add a piece to every time you come and pour with us. After the 5th time, the bracelet is yours to take home. It also includes first access to our Special Events and other special deals. Come in and join!




What about pictures?


By signing up for any of our Parties, you are authorizing us to take and publish any pictures taken during your time in our Studio. If you do not authorize this, please let us know ahead of the party.




What if WE have to cancel?


We reserve the right to cancel any Studio Open Hosted Party with 4 or less participants. Although this would rarely happen, we would offer a full refund. If you don’t meet your minimum booking amount of participants in your Studio Private Party, we reserve the right to open up the party to our Pouraholics. If you don’t meet the minimum for your Destination party, we reserve the right to cancel and will offer a full refund to participants minus the destination fee.




Can I have a private lesson?


Yes, One of our Artists will be happy to book a private lesson with you at our studio. These can be one on one sessions or invite a friend to join. There is a $35 per hour studio charge plus the cost of materials based on canvas size. You can find more information on our Private Party page




Is there a minimum age requirement?


Any age is welcome to pour with us as long as the party is not listed as a 21 and older event. We recommend children under 5 to pour with an older partner. Sometimes they need a little extra help.




Do we do fundraisers?


Yes, on occasion we can accomodate your organization for fundraisers. Contact us for details.
