• Here are some frequently asked questions from our Mud Hut Customers:
  • To what age group does the Mud Hut cater?

    The Mud Hut is the perfect place for adults and children to explore art. Any age group is welcome, and you do not need to be "artistic" to create beautiful one of a kind pieces! Our Mud Staff is trained to help you with ideas and recommendations. Just ask!

  • How long does it take to paint something?

    Painting time varies depending on age, style, and size of your bisque piece. The younger the child the less time they require.

  • How does your pricing work?

    There is a charge for each piece of bisque. We have bisque ranging from $10 to $65. This price includes the cost of paints, glazing, firing, staff expertise, and studio supplies that you will use to create your masterpiece! We do not charge a separate studio fee or for your painting time.

  • Do you host parties?

    Yes! We LOVE parties! Please see our party links for birthday, private, and take home parties.

  • Can I bring food into the studio?

    Adults can bring food -- join us for lunch! However, any grease residue the food leaves behind will be transferred to the bisque, causing it to repel the paint. So wash your hands before and after eating while in the studio working on your bisque. For children we allow beverages.

  • After I have finished my piece, how long before I can pick it up?

    Normal turn around time for a finished piece to be cured, dipped, and fired is between 5 and 7 days. Our friendly MUD Staff will let you know when your piece will be ready for pick up.

  • What if I don't have time to paint an original piece and need a gift?

    Not a problem! We have hand painted pottery for sale and will soon have art work from local artists to purchase.

  • Is it safe to eat off of this pottery?

    Yes. The glaze and underglaze we supply is non toxic and food-safe.

  • Can I use my pottery in the microwave and dishwasher?

    We do not recommend placing your pottery in the microwave, over time the finish will degrade. Although the pottery can be placed in the dishwasher, repeated exposure to the dishwasher will degrade the finish over time. Handwashing your piece is best.
