Nestled inside a repurposed 1927 cottage, the arts-and-crafters of Sunfire Ceramics guide paint-spattered guests through embellishing personalized pottery or creating fused-glass art. In the open studio, guests can peruse the monochromatic selection of microwave- and dishwasher-safe paintable pottery ($6–$12 on average) before adorning a plate or decorative frame with more than 50 bright underglazes. Stencils, stamps, sponges, and paintbrush-wielding woodland creatures assist guests in realizing their artistic visions. Fused glass projects lie in wait to become translucent masterpieces: dichroic metallic glass transforms into pendants ($10–$12), sun catchers ($12), or the world’s most dangerous windshield as the amicable staff offers sage advice before spiriting the art pieces away for firing.

Classes welcome newcomers from every fitness level and meet each Tuesday and Thursday at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., and Saturdays at 9 a.m. After 60 minutes of fast footwork, each Zumba zealot exits with the kind of energy high-cardio sashaying could never achieve.
