The FirePlace, your homeparty solution! October 14, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — fpceramics @ 7:26 pm

Hi everyone, sorry it’s been a while since I have updated the site.  Things have been a changing, so we have been ironing out the wrinkles!

It’s just been easier to become a home – service, no more regular workshops as of yet.  What does this mean for you?  Call or email to schedule a time when I come to your home to do a party, or help with painting some hand-prints of your child onto a piece.  I can then leave the kit with you to finish off the decorating, then pick it up in a few days to take it back to my home studio to fire your pieces in the kiln.

Christmas time is quickly drawing upon us, hand painted ceramics are the perfect gift for anyone!  Plus, with winter drawing near, what better than to book a ladies night get together or your child’s sleepover to include some ceramics painting!

Summary of prices:

Studio fee (includes: paint, supplies & firing) $5 per child, $10 per adult

Party fee: $20 for 4-10 people, $50 for more

Ceramic Pieces range from $4 to $40

Pictures are of the current stock, please inquire about prices, or feel free to contact me to come down & take a look for yourself!

I know the weather is wonderful again this weekend, but this is your ONLY chance to come paint something for father’s day or for a teacher’s gift!  Maybe  you have a wedding coming up & want to make a gift, or just planning ahead for Christmas… Saturday the 12th is the day!!

9325 100 Street, Fort St. John, BC.


Painting this Saturday! June 9, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — fpceramics @ 9:03 pm

This Saturday, the 12th will be the only public painting workshop we will be holding since we are on a schedule of monthly workshops for the summer!  11am to 4pm, at the BRC (green building behind the museum).

Lets work on some projects for Father’s Day & those teacher projects!  As well, some people are gearing up for Christmas gifts already!

I have brought in some new specialty glazes as well as some platters for those of you planning weddings – this is a great signature project, ask me how!

Since I am a mug fanatic, I am now selling my painted creations at Cosmic Grounds – now newly owned by Devon of Patch Java!  Stop on by for some fresh locally roasted coffee!

So, if you can’t make it this Saturday, you can always call me for a session: we now offer A MOBILE PAINTING STUDIO!  This can be either of 2 ways: I drop off a painting package to you with your choice of pieces for your gathering or group, then pick it up in a couple of days. OR, I come & do a party for you (minimum of 3 people, max is infinite!)  in our home, office or wherever for a couple of hours!  Cost is $20 per party (up to 10 people), $5 per child & $10 per adult for the painting/firing fee, then the price per piece ($4 & up).

Down to once a month for the next season May 5, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — fpceramics @ 10:53 pm

Sadly, due to lack of interest & the upcoming good weather season, we will solely be doing a once a month event at the BRC (Business Resource Centre, green building behind the museum).  That is THIS Saturday, 10-2pm, & not again until the beginning of June – in time for Father’s Day gift painting!

Our new format is now a MOBILE PAINTING STUDIO!  How this works is that we bring all the ceramics, painting & supplies to you – guide you along for a couple of hours, or drop the stuff off for a couple of days.  We then take it back & fire it in the kiln, where upon we deliver it back to you so you can show off your mad skills to your friends!  This can basically be done anytime, anywhere!

For any questions or comments, email:, or call: 250-262-8265
