We went to the Hands On Art Studio for their Friday Drunken Art Night (they brand it "Adult Art Night"). They have several barns/workshops with different categories of art projects in them. The night we went, we made unique designs using fragments of colored glass on clear templates (like bowls, platters and lawn ornaments). The process is: drink some wine,... More

The painted ceramics turn out very well without any smears or uneven coatings. This is a great place for children, though it does cost at least 15 dollars to participate.

Went there as part of a girl's weekend. Definitely plan on going back! Tip: if you are in Door County for multiple days, be sure to go here first, so you can pick up your finished projects the next day while you are still in town or they will have to be shipped to you.

My wife and I stopped here on our trip to door county. This place is top notch and the staff was absolutely awesome. So friendly and helpful with everything. We would travel back to door county just to go to Hands On. Thanks for a great day of fun!

In between dining stops my wife and I stopped by Hands On to carve some free pumpkins and paint ceramics (about $30). The atmosphere was fun with live music and beer. A neat option for the hyper vacationers.

Yes, just fun! So much to do, so much to choose from. Never boring, never the same twice. You don't need to know HOW, all you need to know is that your want to learn, and there is plenty of staff to help you along the way. This place is neither cheap nor expensive, the price is fair.

We have always loved coming here annually with our children but must say we were very turned off by the blatant begging of tips this year. Every table and design area has a jar or rock for you to leave something. There's even one at the check out!! Makes us wonder if they are paying the staff anything! It was... More

The Hands On Studio in Ephraim is a gem! Our two families went to the studio after a morning of hiking is Peninsula State Park. Our boys made swords - SWORDS!!!! They were able to choose how they wanted their swords to look and when they had made their decisions, their dad's got to do the welding. I spent 2... More

There are so many possibilities here. My daughters and grand kids love painting pottery, but this year my 10 year old grandson made an awesome sword in the metal shop, with the help of his dad. Lots of good family bonding time. I like the jewelry and glass works shop too.The only negative this year was that on the day... More
