Frequently Asked Questions
What does DIY mean?
DIY stands for Do It Yourself. At PIP, you will create your own product from our current workshop offerings using our step-by-step instructions, venue, supplies and tools.
What types of tools will we use during our event?
Depending on the project, we may use power drills, brad nailers, orbital sanders, or other basic hand tools. Instruction and safety goggles will be provided before the use of each tool. We want everyone feeling confident and staying safe while spending time with us.
*All tools, materials, and instruction will be provided unless otherwise noted in your class/event description
May I bring my son or daughter?
The atmosphere, instruction, and tools at PIP are designed for adults. With so many creative venues for kids, PIP's venue is a space where the adults can play. If you have a younger group looking for an age appropriate experience, our friends down the street at KiddyWampus have you covered!
What should I wear?
Wear whatever you feel comfortable and confident in! We provide work aprons, but will trust your judgement in knowing you signed up for a DIY class.
How many people will be in the class?
Our class size depends on the complexity, popularity, and event time for the project. Some classes have a maximum of 8 students and others 20.
May I sign up with friends?
Yes, we encourage it! If you plan to attend a workshop with a small group, we suggest one individual purchases the tickets or if paying separately to call/email us to ensure you are seated together. If you have a larger group, or want to host a private event, click HERE to learn more.
May I tag along with friends and watch the workshop?
Each workshop attendee needs to be a ticket holder. Occasionally we host couples events, but both individuals are engaged in the project.
Where do I park?
We recommend you park in the parking lot directly behind our location. There is typically parking available on Mainstreet or 9th Ave, but we encourage you to read parking signs as spots can be limited by time.
Are you handicapped accessible?
Our location is handicapped accessible including: parking (in back), doors, restroom, and table work space. Please contact us if you have concerns about completing a project on your own.
What if I’m late for my workshop?
Keep coming! We will catch you up when you arrive.
May I receive a refund for an event I am unable to attend?
Due the preparation of materials, we are unable to give refunds. If you contact us within 48 hours of your class, we can issue a one-time transfer to another class.
If a workshop has fewer than 4 attendees registered or does not meet the project minimum, we may cancel the event and refund or transfer your reservation.
Do you provide alcohol?
- See our class calendar to view the classes where an appetizer and drink will be included
- We have a relationship with a local caterer who can provide alcohol and/or food service for your private event. If you're interested, we will set it up for you and roll it into your final cost. No extra work for you!
- If scheduling a private event, we are able to accommodate a break in your class to visit a nearby restaurant for beer or wine.
*No outside alcoholic beverages are permitted
Do you provide food?
As mentioned above, some of our events include food and beverage. We also encourage you to dine at one of our many restaurants on Mainstreet before or after your event. Click HERE to learn about Hopkins dining options. If dining after the event, we are happy to give local suggestions!
*No outside food is permitted.
How often are projects rotated?
PIP hopes to provide opportunity for customers to come back again and again to create something new. New projects will be offered with each season and will evolve with the current trends. Please join our mailing list to be the first to learn about new projects and events.
