Thank you for considering Walls of Clay, we would be thrilled to host an off-site event at your location. Walls of Clay has been in downtown McKinney for 19+ years and have worked with hundreds of groups over the years. We are not a franchise, but rather family owned business and can work with your group to tailor a field trip to fit most needs. Please find attached some information to help you in making your decision. If you have other questions, check availability or reserve a date, please contact us at 972.547.4472 and ask for Jenn (owner) or send us an email.
Field Trips – At Your Location
We have a variety of affordable pottery projects starting at $10 per painter. We also can supply canvas for canvas painting and wood panels for board art.
Pricing is dependent upon the project you choose. See below for some ideas. Prices do not include sales tax. If your organization is tax-exempt, we must have a tax-exempt form on file before the end of your event, or you will be charged sales tax with no refunds. In addition to the cost of the project itself, a travel fee for locations outside of McKinney and it’s bordering cities will be added.
The minimum number required for off-site events is 20. You, the organizer\host\hostess is financially responsible for meeting the minimum number of 20 regardless of their attendance.
Typically, we need 40 – 60 minutes per group. This can vary, depending on age and the particular project.
As many as you have, the more, the merrier!
It depends on the size of your group. Pottery projects (kiln fired) have a turnaround of 7 – 14 days; we will notify you when they are ready for pick up. Canvas and wood projects are ready the same day and will be left at your location to dry (if needed) and take home.
Our team will need tables and chairs for the children to create at and access to water (sink) to clean brushes. If you select a pottery project, our pottery paints (glazes) are water | washer friendly and wipe off of tables, chairs, floors, clothes, etc. If you choose a canvas or wood project, we use acrylic and latex paints; which are not so washer-friendly and suggest participants wear their “paint” or “art” clothes. And in these cases, we ask that you cover floors and work stations to protect against unwanted stains.
We are available 7 days a week – you let us know what works best with your schedule.
A refundable* deposit per date is required, we cannot hold a date without a deposit. Deposits are non-refundable if you cancel your event or do not meet the minimum number required. In the event you do not reach the minimum required, Walls of Clay reserves the right to cancel | postpone (one time) the event. If you need to reschedule for any reason (illness, weather, low attendance, schedule conflict, etc.), you may do so one time providing you have given us 72 hours advance notice. No shows will not be refunded or credited.
*All deposits WILL BE REFUNDED AFTER YOUR EVENT PROVIDING THE MINIMUM NUMBER OF PAINTERS ARE REGISTERED, PAID AND IN ATTENDANCE.
The balance is due at the end of your event when we tally up the total number of kids in attendance. We accept cash and all major credit cards. Checks are NOT accepted for final payment.
