Step 3: Check-Out

Most projects take 1 – 2 hours to complete, though this depends on how much makery and merriment is involved and each person’s pace.  With the exception of candle making and acrylic pouring, all other projects are ready to go home with you that day.   If you are pouring wax or acrylics, pick up arrangements can be made for a later date.  It’s simple;
check-in ~ create ~ check out
