Confirming Our June 30th Closure

It is with very mixed emotions that we are notifying you of our decision to close the Cedarburg location of Thirsty Hammer Workshop by June 30, 2019.   We thank you for a wonderful four years in our current location but it is time for us to try something new.  We will remain open during May and June and throughout Strawberry Fest.

Please note the following changes in our policies and pricing.  

To book a class:  As of today, new reservations will be at reduced prices as we close out our inventory!  We hope to keep as many projects available as we can but it will be first come-first served on some of our limited items (wine racks, etc.).  Our full class schedule between now and closing will be finalized by May 5th.  If there is a date and time that you would like to come in where we do not have a class scheduled, please email us at and we will do our best to accommodate.  Please note the change in our cancellation policy when you register.  All reservations are FINAL and we will not allow changes or give refunds for no-shows or cancellations.  We will also no longer be able to take Custom Design Requests.  Please understand that when you register.  There are lots of great classes on the calendar and we promise the same great service just at a lower price than usual!!  

Existing Reservations:  Classes will continue as scheduled, so if you have an existing reservation there is noting additional you need to do!  Anyone with a reservation after June 30th has already been contacted and refunded but if we missed someone, please reach out to us.  Note that reduced pricing is not available on existing reservations (no refunds) or with private parties.

Gift Cards:  As of today, we will no longer sell gift cards due to the limited time in which to use them.  All outstanding gift cards must be redeemed by June 30th.  Our full class schedule between now and closing will be finalized by May 5th.  If there is a date and time that you would like to come in where we do not have a class, please email us at and we will do our best to accommodate.  You can also stop in and use your gift card toward a retail purchase.  We are generally open 30 minutes prior to a scheduled class and during classes.

Auction Certificates:  Note that if you are holding a cerfticate for a class purchased at a charity auction you will need to use it by June 30, 2019 or its expiration date, whichever is earlier.  Please contact us at as soon as possible so we can be sure you are able to use your certificate before we close.

Thanks again for your patronage.  This was a very difficult decision on our part and while we are not quite ready to announce our future plans, we promise to keep you updated through our mailing list and Facebook page when we announce our next endeavor.
