How do I register?

All registration is done through our class calendar. We do not take registrations by phone or email. Registration typically closes 48 hours before class time.  We apologize but walk-ins are not allowed unless specifically listed as due to the nature of our materials, we must prepare for each class in advance.  Contact us via email at if registration is closed and you want to join the class.  We will do our best to accommodate!

What if there is no class on a day I want to come in?

Please send us an email if there is a day/time you would like to come in and we don’t have a class on the calendar. We will do our best to accommodate an additional class, pending staff availability. Any added classes are subject to our Cancellation Policy.

How far in advance do I need to register?

Due to the size of our studio, spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis. Unless otherwise noted, all registration closes 48 hours prior to the class so that we can prepare for your Thirsty Hammer Workshop experience.

Are drinks included in my registration?

No, think of it like a concert ticket… water, soft drinks, wine and beer are sold separately.

Do you offer any fundraising opportunities?

Yes, we love helping raise funds for teams, schools, charities, and other local organizations! We do not accept phone or mail requests and give preference to our customer-supported events.  Please click here for more information on options as well as to make a request.

Are children allowed in the studio?

Please note that most of our classes are intended for an adult audience as we serve alcohol in our studio and often host Bachelorette parties or other groups of adults. As a result, evening sessions on the weekends are intended for adults—please plan accordingly. We do offer classes and events for children, but otherwise ask that you limit the attendance of children under 14 to our other classes and events. Contact us at if you have questions about a specific event.   Due to the nature of our projects and the tools and chemicals we utilize, we do not allow children under the age of 4 in the studio during any of our Sip & Stain Classes. We just don’t want anyone getting hurt. Thank you for your understanding.
