Artventures
About
I've been teaching art for over 20 years, and I love what I do. I am patient and fun, and enjoy sharing my knowledge of clay. Students tell me that they've always wanted to "throw," and—because of my passion for clay—I am a great teacher. It fills me with joy to see others succeed at something they've never done before.

This company does not understand what customer service is, I went to check the price my auto fill put all my information in at the same time as my car broke down so I somehow put to buy and asked if I can get a refund as it was within two seconds of buying it and never got an answer. My sister went into the class And when she went, they said I would get a refund I never did. I followed up with emails because they don’t answer the phone and never got my refund. Many of my friends have had issues with this company either not getting their products because they were no longer able to find them or couldn’t reach them

Do not go here they do not know what customer service is. I bought by accident a class as my auto populate was on. I was driving there and my car broke down. My sister went to the class and was told I would be refunded. They don’t answer the phones, emails if responded to are robotic. I did not get a refund and keep getting told I can rebook. I live over an hour away and wouldn’t rebook. I have my own small business and would never treat people this way. My friends even had issues and no one is helping them either

A friend and I did a glass fusion night in August. We were told that we would get a call in a month to pick up. I emailed 3 times, left 2 messages, and texted a couple of times. I had taken a picture so I even sent photos of what it looked like. No response. Finally I went online and booked a time to pick up in early December. (Online bookings were for pottery, but I booked one anyhow.) I went through all of the boxes and our items were not there. The employee gave me a cell number to text. Same result: no response. We paid $50 each. I want reimbursement.

Trying to rebook a cancelled appointment, But they never respond.
Looks like a scam.
No refund, not even if you requested within 24 hrs of booking. And the booking is like weeks away.

It was fun, but not quite what I was expecting from the add/posting. We did get to use the wheel and make a clay pot/bowl. But the picture on the add is of a large size bowl while the maximum size bowl you can make with this class is a coffee cup. I get that they need to keep it simple for beginners, but make the photo match. Also the add says that they can glaze and fire your piece for an extra fee but they don’t tell you that you need to take your piece home for two months to dry and then book another decorating class. If that is what the clay needs in order to dry, ok, but be up front in the add.

Eli and Blair were incredible instructors! My family and I had an incredible time. We laughed a lot and learned so much in just 1 hour. They were both very attentive and sweet. Certainly going to go back and take my friends there for this cool experience!
Thank you so much Eli & Blair!!

This was an absolute sham. We did our pottery night after finally booking (they are NOT responsive). They then moved so after we dried the clay and baked it as directed, I made an appointment to paint and fire. They failed to mention until the end of the appointment that their oven wasn’t installed yet. So I left my items with my contact info in June. I have since been ghosted as I have moved away as I am with the military. I have tried to contact them to make arrangements for a family member to pick up the items. It’s not almost November and none of my voicemails, texts or emails have been answered. Absolutely garbage. Don’t go here.

Dear Joanna, I'm so sorry to see your feedback. We offer 24/7 booking online to arrange pick up or shipping. All painted pieces are kiln fired one week after.

Basic pottery skills with individualized attention. Not quite a full a hour of activity. Still need to return to fire the bowl and give it some color.
