Planning a Visit?
You can walk-in to Quiggly's Clayhouse with your friends and family anytime we are open. We accept groups of any size without notice ('course, if you're bringing more than 10 people, let us know so we can reserve a table for you)!
Walk-Ins can create projects in the following arts without prior experience. Quiggly's staff and trained artists will assist you in the creative process and teach you everything you need to know to make a wonderful creation you and your family will treasure. If we fire your item we will hold it for 60 days to give you ample time to pick it up.
When you arrive, we'll show you around and help you settle in. Many parents bring babies and toddlers to make hand or footprint keepsakes. Other families visit Quiggly's to spend quality time together away from life's cares. We also cater to couples on Friday nights looking for a creative alternative to the typically dinner-and-a-movie scene.
Whatever your reasons for painting pottery, the process is the same. You'll select a "raw" piece of pottery (there are hundreds to choose from), pick out paint colors, brushes, stencils, and sponges and paint your piece. If you are looking for inspiration, we can offer you tons of ideas, or you can browse through one of our idea books or even choose one of our painted samples as a guide.
Interested in understanding what glass fusing is and how YOU can do it!? Visit Quiggly's and we'll show you how simple it is! You can make trays, bowls, plates, jewelry (pendants, earrings, bracelets), figurines, nightlights, magnets, beads, gems and on and on...
When we fire glass in a kiln, it flattens first, then we shape it over a mold (if necessary). Creating a design in glass is as simple as piecing together a colored glass mosaic while keeping in mind a few basic principles concerning how glass melts, moves and reflects light. Please call to schedule a time for us to walk you through the basics. We are not always available for Glass Fusion walk-ins at our busiest times.
Come join in the fun and learn the art of mosaics! First-timers and long-time hobbyists have a blast with this simple puzzling art! We have dozens of wooden shapes to mosaics on, and you can mosaic onto many of our pottery pieces as well. Quiggly's offers a wide range of materials, grouts and adhesives to make your project look great!
Glueing & grouting is a simple process to mosaic just about anything. We supply you with all basic tools and materials to mosaic with... all you need is a good dose of inspiration (we have that too)!
Now playing with clay isn't just for kids! It's fun for adults too! Handbuilding, or sculpture, is a fun way of working with clay. The basic techniques are easier to learn than the wheel and the range of forms you can produce is much broader. If For the beginner, you will be surprised how easy it is to begin making nice functional ware or artworks on your very first day.
And then what?
Once you complete your artwork, you pay for your ticket and we complete your project.
If you painted a piece of pottery, we will clear-glaze your piece(s), stilt and fire them to 1828*F. You pottery is ready for pick up one week later.
If you fused glass, we will fire your piece flat, then fire it a second time (if requested), to "slump" the piece into its final shape. Your glass is ready for pick up two weeks later.
If you created a mosaic, we will send you home with your mosaic creation alongwith a "grout kit" for you to smear in the grout between the tiles if you choose to do so (many people leave their mosaic ungrouted).
If you sculpted clay, we will slowly dry your piece for a week, then fire during the next week- it is ready for pick up two weeks later. You can bring your clay creation to the studio at a later date to paint it with our glazes and re-fire, or you can paint it at home with anything you like
You'll be amazed at how cool, awesome and permanent your creations will be! This isn't crafts, this is true art, y'all!! This is why we love the fired arts!
