Frequently Asked Questions:

How much does it cost to attend a party? It is $45 for either pallet wood or flat wood and that includes hanging hardware. We also have Limited Edition Make & Take Workshops that are specific projects and those prices will vary. Private Party workshops are $45 per person.

How long is a party? Workshops are 2.5 hours long

How many people can attend a private party? We love private parties here at The Makery and can accommodate up to 22 people. The minimum to host an exclusive Private Party will be 12. If you have a smaller group and would still like to come in, please e-mail our Project Manager Katie at themakerykatie@gmail.com to see if we can combine you with another smaller group. 

How long do guests have to register for a Private Party? We keep registration open until 14 days before the party so that gives us enough time to get everyone's supplies ready. 

Are we allowed to bring alcohol? Yes! We do allow you to bring in your own food and drinks but ask that you sign a liability waiver before class starts and fill out a banquet form online. Your host will have that information, it is through the state of Washington.

Can I host a private party in my home? Unfortunately at this time we are only doing in studio workshops. Leave the clean up to us! 

Are kids allowed at the Make & Take Workshops? Kids are ONLY allowed at Mommy and Me Workshops and Open Paint Times. We try to keep the environment calm and relaxing, so children are only allowed on specific days. 

What is Open Paint? We are open Monday and Friday from 9-1 for Drop-in hours. This means you can come in anytime during those hours and paint a project with us! Designs are limited to what we have in stock on the day you come in. Kiddos are welcome during these sessions. 

What is your cancellation policy? Because we pre-make each person's design ahead of time, we are unable to offer a refund. If it is an emergency, you are welcome to join another class within 90 days. 

What materials are used? We use brand new wood, CeCe Caldwell's Chalk+Clay Based Paint and adhesive stencils for the design. No skill is necessary and you will always leave with something wall-worthy!

Where are you located? Both The Design Center AND Studio are in Tacoma. The Studio, where our private and public parties are held is near the 512 fwy and Pacific Ave. 412 112th. St. E. Unit B. Directly across the street from an apartment complex in an industrial shopping center. We have a cute wooden bridge in front of the entrance. The Design Center is at 11105 Steele St. S Unit 115 Tacoma, WA 98444. 

What is your cancellation policy? Due to the custom nature of our projects, we don't allow for refunds but we can give you a credit for a future workshop.
