Yes, typically, my classes are designed for individuals aged 12 years and older. However, I do consider exceptions on a case-by-case basis, especially if there is an older individual accompanying a younger participant.

If you have any specific questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out, and I'll be happy to assist you.

After painting, let the ceramics air dry for a couple of days. When it's time to set the paint, it's crucial to heat the ceramics gradually to prevent cracking. Place your painted ceramic item in a cool oven and then set the temperature to 350°F. After the oven is up to temperature, set a timer for 30 minutes. After the baking time, turn off the oven, but do not remove the ceramics immediately. Leave them inside the oven to cool gradually, which can take an hour or two. This gradual cooling process allows the painted surface to cure and cool properly. Once fully cooled, your ceramics are ready to use, with the paint set, making them dishwasher safe and resilient for everyday use.
