“It was okay...”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Me and my daughter recently went. Yes, it was kind of expensive...overall it cost me over 50 bucks for two small ceramic items. But it was a great activity for us to do inside. We both love crafts so it was up our alley.
I had read reviews and had some concerns that the staff may be rude. There was only one staff person there on the day we went...I think she was the owner. And while she wasn't overly friendly...she wasn't offensive either. I didn't mind that she didn't talk much to us as she did stuff on her laptop. However, my 12 year old daughter described her as rude afterwards, but when pressed really couldn't give me examples.
Money permitting, I would go back again.......

“They charge PER HOUR PER PERSON! TOO EXPENSIVE!! Save your $$”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We are a military family and are from the area so when we are home visiting family we use to go to Creatable Crafts to paint something. After living in many different states around the country we have had the opportunity to paint in other studios and I have to say that Creatable Crafts is the most expensive studio that we have been to- (we have been to studios in Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Alabama, and Georgia), so we have had plenty of opportunity to price out services and Creatable Crafts is the only place that charges per person per hour to paint. $8 per person per hour is way too expensive! I understand that having a business so close to the beach is expensive but WOW to charge that much is a total rip off. Plus, the lady at the studio is very condescending and makes you feel like a total fool when she talks to you. This place is too expensive and the lady that works there is very rough around the edges and not a very personable person. Good customer service is not something you will get from that place. Bottom line- too expensive and rude worker. Charging per hour per person- it's a wonder they are still in business.

“Save your money”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

This place could be great. Paint your own pottery is an awesome fun treat and they do fire things pretty quickly. The $8 studio fee per person per hour is a rip off!!!! For 3 of us we were there 45 minutes and it cost $108. The owner is a bit rude with a snotty attitude. We won't be back.

“Pushy owner, expensive and ruined quality time with my child!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Visited Creatable Crafts because it was not a beach day in Ocean City. Drove 30 minutes to specifically take my 6 year old to paint some pottery. Was greeted by the owner (I think) and in the first minute of the conversation, I was treated like I was a 3 year old... she was condescending
and rude. I let it go. After our item was chosen, a nice younger gal assisted with our paint colors. About 6 minutes into painting... the same woman came over and commented that the signs on the wall pertained to me and to basically leave my child alone. Look, if I'm spending quality time with my kid and dishing out $20 for a tiny piece of ceramic.... I'm going to paint it if I want to paint it.
THEN.... After we cleaned up, and proceeded to cash out..... she purposely made us wait while chatting away with someone who just wanted to get out of her store.
Poor Customer Service at it's finest!!

“Nice Place but a bit expensive for small children's crafts”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Millie was very nice and the facility was nice. A big selection. A bit expensive for crafts for small children. Hourly rate per child was a bit much. The projects turned out very nice and the kids had a great time on a rainy day.
