Welcome to Fired Up Studios

What's New

Mask Mandate Resumes January 1, 2022

We are as tired of wearing masks as everyone else; however, to ensure the studio stays open and is safe for everyone, we feel it is necessary to re-establish the mask mandate due to the ongoing threats from COVID varients. Starting January 1, 2022 masks that cover your nose and mouth must be worn while at Fired Up Studios.This is for everyone, regardless of your vaccination status.

If you are shopping in the gallery, please use hand sanitizer

Our studio is not marked for social distancing, but we expect our members and customer to be respectful of other members' boundaries. We usually have plenty of space for our members to practice social distancing as needed.

Cleaning has always been and will continue to be a high priority at Fired Up Studios. We still ask that everyone clean up after yourself. We also clean daily to keep the dust down. Please continute to wash your hands frequently.

Thank you for helping keep Fired Up Studios safe and healthy.
