Plus, you'll each leave with art to decorate your home or office. We can even host your team building event during office hours.

How to Schedule a Private Party?

  • Our calendar often shows when the private studio is booked, but often times there are events planned not showing on the calendar. Please email us at or call us at 734.662.7928 with your selected date/time and we'll confirm if your party time is available.
  • To reserve your selected date/time, you must sign and return the Private Party Contract.  In addition, a valid credit card is required.  Your individual reservation will be charged to verify the credit card when you return your contract. 
  • Once you have chosen your date and secured it with the signed contract and initial reservation payment, your event will appear on our calendar.
  • There is a TWO WEEK cancellation policy.  A $200.00 cancellation fee will be charged if less than TWO WEEKS notice of cancellation is given for a private event.
  • For events booked with less than a 7 day notice, the FULL event minimum is required at the time of booking (Children's Party $250, Standard 2 Hour = $350, or Standard 3 Hour = $450).  This amount is non-refundable. 

What else do I need to know?

  • The private party minimum is 10 people.
  • If the party minimum is not met, the credit card on hold will be charged for the difference. For example, if only 8 people attend the party, the card will be charged for 2 additional people to meet the minimum requirement.

What’s an OPEN PARTY?
