Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do I sign up for a class?
A. Simple! Go to our Calendar and select the painting or evening you'd like to join us. Fill in the necessary information & click "Get Signed Up". The next screen is the secure payment screen. (I realize it feels like you're repeating information, but the reservation information is completely separate from the payment information.)
Q. Is parking available?
A. Bottleworks has a small horseshoe shaped lot right off of Prince. You can try your luck there. OR, there is a large Bottleworks parking lot BEHIND the complex on Meigs.
Bottleworks is now charging for parking and managing the lot in order to cut back on people parking in our lots and going elsewhere. It is free for the first 1.5hours, then $2 for the next 1.5 hours, then it goes up to $4 if you're here longer than 3 hours. This has actually cut back on the abuse of our parking lots greatly, so there is always room for Bottleworks patrons. There is street parking all around, and the businesses across Prince that close at 6pm don't tow. I always suggest carpooling, anyhow, to cut back on energy and space consumption. Also Uber & Lyft are great options, especially if you plan to consume alcohol.
Q. May I bring in alcoholic beverages?
A. No, you may not. It is the law - It is Clarke County ordinance which does not permit establishments such as ours to allow people to bring in their own alcohol.
We are therefore licensed to sell wine & beer for consumption on premises. We have a nice selection of red, white, sparkling wine, as well as sodas, Vitamin Water, Coconut water, and juices.
Q. May I pay at the door?
A. Online payment is required unless it is a special circumstance or a pottery reservation. It lets us as staff know how we need to plan for the upcoming sessions, and it lets other people browsing the calendar know if a class is going to happen or not.

Historically, taking door payment reservations often resulted in reservations being canceled at the last minute or no call/no shows.
A minimum of 4 people is required to hold a class.
If you have made a pottery reservation and we do not have enough people to hold class, we will have to cancel and we will notify you.
If you've signed up for a regular class and paid online, if we do not meet the minimum we will have to cancel and we will notify you and honor your preference of a credit on file or a refund.
If you have a special circumstance and need to pay at the door, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
