Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is a Creatively Uncorked event like?
A. A fun, social, group setting, with an artist to guide you step by step in replicating the night’s featured painting. By the end of the evening, you will create a fabulous craft or piece of artwork! The event times vary but we suggest arriving 20-30 minutes early to get drinks, paint and the seat of your choice. Events are 2 – 3 hours including breaks. Events in our downtown Fargo studio are open to age 6 and up. The West Fargo studio is age 21 and up. Please check the description of the event you plan to attend.
Q. Do I need to sign up in advance?
Q. What is the cost of a Creatively Uncorked event?
A. Most prices range between $20-$70 depending on the night, the material, and the painting. Typically a two-hour painting is $40. We accept cash, credit cards, and gift certificates. We do not take personal checks.
Q. Do you have gift certificates?
Q. How do I redeem my gift certificate?
If you have a plastic gift card or an eCard, just call or email to let us know which event you will attend. We will hold your spot and you can redeem your eCard when you get here.
Q. What do I wear?
A. We provide aprons, but you may want to wear something you wouldn’t mind getting paint on, just in case!
Q. What time do I need to arrive for an event?
A. We recommend arriving 20-30 minutes early to most events to get signed in, get uncorked and get seated. The bar is open in the West Fargo studio an hour before most events. Stop in early for a snack and a drink. Most of our venue partners offer full menus, so you may want to arrive even earlier to order dinner in the dining area before the event. If you want to sit with a group of friends, one person should arrive early enough to save seats for the group. Let us know if you would like to save seats when you are checking in.
Q. What happens if an event is canceled due to weather?
A. If we cancel a public event, we will reschedule and transfer all tickets automatically. If you cannot make it to the rescheduled event, you can request a refund or transfer to another event on the calendar.
Q. Can my friend come by and watch?
A. No. Painting parties are not a spectator sport! We have found that having non-painting extras in the room is very distracting and disruptive to the painters.
Q. The event I want to attend is sold out. Can you add me to a waitlist?
A. We do not maintain a waitlist. If anyone cancels we will post it on Facebook. If you click “interested” or “going” on the Facebook event, you will be among the first to be notified about cancellations.
Q. When does the new schedule come out?
Q. My private party really wants a custom painting. Can you paint one?
Q. Can we have liquor in the studio?
A. The West Fargo studio has a full bar and some snacks available. Outside liquor brought into the studio are not allowed. The downtown Fargo studio does not provide or sell liquor or refreshments.
Q. How far will you travel for an event?
Q. Do you do kid’s parties?
A. We do private painting parties and public Creatively Kids paintings for age 6+ in the downtown Fargo studio only. We do not do mobile kids parties.
Q. Can I bring my baby?
A. No. Age restrictions are firm.
Q. I have a venue and would like to host an event. How do I get started?
Great! We are always looking for new venues. Here is more information on event venues.
Q. I am an artist, are you hiring?
A. We are always looking for talented artists. Send your resume and samples of your work here.
Q. Is there an age limit for Creatively Uncorked?
A. It depends on the event and venue. Events in the Creatively Uncorked West Fargo studio are open to age 21+. Creatively Uncorked Downtown Fargo is age 6+. Most public mobile events are open to age 6+. Check the information on the specific event you would like to attend. Babies are not allowed at any public event.
Q. What do you do with the extra teacher’s paintings?
A. We often donate them to charity. If you know of a non-profit that is holding a silent auction and would like some paintings, have them call us at 701-532-2112. You can request a donation for your non-profit here. Any paintings that do not get donated are available at the studio for sale.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: If you cannot make it to your scheduled event, you can request a transfer voucher here until 48 hours prior to the event. Your transfer voucher will expire in 90 days. Transfers are not available less than 48 hours before the event. You may let someone of your own choosing use your ticket in your absence.
Not all events are voucherable! Fundraisers, private parties and some specials will not have the transfer voucher option available.
