Nestled in a spacious corner of the historic Sterling Cider Mill, The Clay Dog Studio inspires and equips all levels of artists to mold and polish self-made and artist-produced masterpieces. Paint your own original classmates can work solo, painting large detailed creations ($30) or invite friends to colorize intermediate ($15) figurines. Pieces are forged from clay that, like Saint Helen's childhood sandbox, consists primarily of volcanic ash. Mini Project classes instruct artistic twosomes in crafting take-home projects including holiday napkin rings or ornaments. During four-session classes, instructors oversee projects from concept to completion, covering basics such as sculpting form, overlays, paint finishing, and tasteful ways to fill end tables with something other than a series of smaller and smaller end tables.
Play time speeds on unabated at Roll On America, a 30,000-square-foot wonderland containing an indoor skating rink, laser-tag arena, and arcade. Skaters trade in street shoes for traditional quad or sleek inline wheels and zoom across the floor, executing figure eights or even more intricate figure 16s. Inside a futuristic laser-tag arena marked by neon alien landscapes, would-be warriors duck and cover their way to victory by blasting indicator vests with high-powered beams. Post-tagging, Roll On America’s onsite eatery serves up snacks, and an arcade area houses more than 25 classic and modern games.
Lady T’s relationship with the occult is hardly a new one. She got her first set of tarot cards at age 9 from her father Richard, an avid historian, and since then, she has explored her powers as a psychic, a scryer, and a witch, eventually opening her own magickal boutique. The shop is welcoming, eschewing shadows and secretiveness in favor of bright colors and mystical wall art. Shelves covered in gauzy fabrics hold bottled spells and candles, and packets of herbs hang from the walls. Lady T and her fellow conjurers offer their services in psychic and tarot readings and the casting of spells, and also teach classes in building wands.
