Idea Online orders must be made at least 3 days in advance.

Idea Reservations require a total party size of 8 to 18.


For parties larger than 18, please call 303-776-2211 so we can assist you. The "official" last day to paint is 10 days before the event so that we may glaze, fire & deliver the bowls to the OUR Center in time for them to prepare the bowls for the event. Thank you!

Donate your time and creativity for a worthy cause… and have fun in the process! We’re once again proud sponsors of the OUR Center’s Empty Bowls project (our 14th year) , where YOU paint and donate beautiful bowls to the OUR Center so they can be distributed at the big Empty Bowls event on Saturday, March 18th, 2017. It’s a perfect outing for church groups, business community outreach and team-building, scout troops, youth groups, or just a group of friends. (Last day to paint an Empty Bowl is Sunday, March 5th.) Here is what to expect:

Each “Official” Empty Bowl painted is a flat $12.
  • Your $25 deposit is non-refundable. We would be happy to issue studio credit if you cancel within 72 hours of your party. If your group is paying separately, any balance due will be returned to you in the form of studio credit.
  • There is a minimum requirement of 6 people painting to reserve a room. Smaller groups are welcome to join us in our open studio to paint an Empty Bowl. Please understand that if your reserved group falls below 6, you will forgo your deposit.
  • Your reservation is for 2 hours in a private party room, beginning and ending at the designated times chosen here. Please know that 1 hour to 1.5 hours is usually plenty of time for a kids group, so you might want to plan pick-ups accordingly.
  • Your bowls will be glazed and fired at no extra charge by Crackpots and delivered directly to the OUR Center. Crackpots will post photos of the finished bowls online so you can see how yours turned out.
  • Adult groups only:  Extra time in the room may be reserved in advance for a fee of $40 per hour if the studio schedule permits. Half hour increments only. Non-refundable. Please call us so we can assist you.
  • Cut off date for Empty Bowls parties is March 5th. so we have time to glaze, fire, and deliver the bowls to the OUR Center and they will have time to prepare them for the event.
