A Wonderful Artistic Retreat – I go to AFU about once a month. Each time I go they have a diverse selection of pottery, the studio is always clean, the paint bottles are never low on paint, cool music is playing, and Cyn is usually there to joyously welcome me back! Everyone appreciates being remembered.
I love supporting this small family owned business because I always leave there feeling relaxed and tranquil. Painting pottery is therapy. And it helps that the employees who run AFU are continually contributing to make your experience there a pleasant one.
Their prices are extremely reasonable and you can also check All Fired Up's Facebook page for days when extra discounts are given.
FAVORITE place in Orlando!!!! – I love All Fired Up!! It is definitely the best place to paint pottery in Orlando. Unlike other places, the staff is really laid-back and so friendly. The prices are about the same as other pottery places but you get a much better atmosphere!! Also they have many events throughout the month that will save you some money. Plus with each additional piece of pottery you paint- you will get $5 off!!! Everything about this place is absolutely perfect!!! Cyn is usually working when I'm there and she is so friendly and fun to talk to!!
Relaxing, Fun & Creative way to spend time – I love AFU!! Have been going for over 2 years now and really enjoy it. I have gotten to know most of the staff and look forward to meeting up with a friend or taking the kids for an afternoon of creativity. They have rules, as long as the kids follow them everyone will be happy. It's great to be able to take in food & drinks, i've had GNO Birthday parties there too. Love talking to Cyn <3
Extremely Rude – I went two months ago to All Fired up with a friend and when I went to pick up the pieces, I didn't have my friend's slip. I was lectured on not having it even though I apologized.
She then asked more details about my piece and when I paused to think about it, she muttered, "you can't remember what you painted?". Extremely disappointing since my friend and I have painted about 3 or 4 pieces before there and rude enough to leave an impression. We will not be back. There are places that are cheaper and more customer orientated than this.
Too pricey – Great concept and helpful staff but the all inclusive prices are too high for a childrens activity. Family movie afternoon is cheaper. Go figure!
Always have a BLAST at All Fired Up! – I love this place! It's always fun. Friendly staff and great selection of pieces to paint in a fun and funky environment! I have painted with friends and family and everyone enjoyed themselves!
I love that you can bring food and drink or even have it delivered! (they have a folder of menus from places that will deliver to them)
Great place for a girls night or just to unwind and blow off some steam from daily life. And who doesn't need that? The best part is after a fun time painting, you get to actually use the piece you painted! I love that!
A GREAT placce for artists and children – This place is as unique as it is friendly. First of all when you walk in the door a staff member ALWAYS greets you at the door asking if "It's your first time" and explaining the rates. Then they will walk you over to the paints once they find you a place to sit and explain how to paint your pottery.
I came in with my husband, mother and 1 week old daughter. They took the time to make me feel at home and not only helped me select memorable and affordable pottery BUT helped paint my child's feet to put on THREE plates I was sending out of state to extended family.
I would say that anyone that has a negative attitude towards this store would have a negative attitude should they win the lottery and not agree with what the state takes out. I would include a link to the beautiful pieces we made here on my photobucket account (but for some reason it's not working right now...and once it does I will come back and post it)....anyone who wants to come and paint in a relaxed, family FRIENDLY atmosphere needs to come here. It's financially resonable and UBER friendly to newcomers.
PLEASE don't let "some" people's reviews detour you from experiencing what is Winter Park's hidden jewels. You will NOT be dissapointed.
No Hospitality, Go somewhere else that cares about YOU! – First arriving, there were no "hello's or is this your first time". We found a table and still no explanation on how to paint pottery and what are the fees. We had to ask for water for the table. The manager on duty was too busy playing on her cell phone and talking to her boyfriend. At the end of our visit, we cashed out with no "thank you's".
( Another visit, I had the same experience as opinionsmatters, where the manager repeated & said sternly, if your help your child paint, then there is an extra fee. It's hard to have a fun time when someone is watching down your back the entire time!)
Went back after a week to pick up the pottery pieces. Got there 30 minutes before closing since I was not painting today, and they "closed" early. I yelled through the glass" i'm just picking up my pottery" and they still refused to open the door. I said " You close in 30 minutes, just hand me my pottery and they turned there back on me. Another family came to pick up there pieces and the employees all hid in the back room, refusing to hand us our product that we paid for. Looking at entire experience, no hospitality when we arrived and left and then arrogant when trying to pick up the pottery. I still have to make a second trip and we are in the middle of a recession! they owe me gas money on top of the inconvenience. Boycott them!!!
Get your flame extinguished at All Fired UP – We were not greeted, and when the manager finally came out from the back, she greeted the four children that I brought with a very stern lesson on the "rules." As a past customer, I was hoping for a cheerful greeting and a helpful guidance in choosing the gifts we were to prepare for the holiday season. She firmly informed me that should I assist my 4 year old in his art, then I would be pay an art fee. I had planned on paying, but her condesending attitude was upsetting. The kids were afraid to touch anything and I told them that it wasn't a big deal. I asked her if something had recently changed, or if something was wrong. She immediatelybecame defensive and began raising her voice in front of the entire place and told me to leave if I wasn't happy. I called my husband asked if there was another place in the area that I could do pottery...she overheard me and let me and the rest of the place know that there was no other place around and since I had a negative attitude I needed to leave anyway.
The kids were stunned...they didn't understand what THEY did wrong.
Save your money people....or head to Waterford Lakes.... I ended up at a place called PAINTED BY HUE.... where there were polite workers who were more than willing to help us choose our project and better yet, it was obvious that they were comfortable with children...they were very encouraging and helpful....a welcome change after getting all fired up at all fired up.
Artists and potters dress up plates, cups and bowls and other functional pieces with original designs. – In Short
