Covenant Art Glass' talented and friendly staff helps patrons turn empty wine bottles into multipurpose pieces of art. Armed with an emptied, cleaned, and dried wine bottle brought from home, approximately 20 students at a time can work with teachers to slump bottles into cheese trays during the one-hour workshop. Students leave bottles behind after the class session, and skilled staff sends them on a transformative trip to the kiln, which leaves them ready for pickup the week following the class. Along with making a functional and non-explosive homemade gift, finished slumped bottles come with a complimentary stainless steel cheese-spreader. With the purchase of this Groupon, customers also receive a 20% discount on stained-glass classes.
The design team at Lila's Scrapbooking conjures up artful strategies for preserving memorabilia, and transmits their techniques unto aspiring artists. Students burn creative fuels to produce eight cards using store-provided materials while learning a variety of decorative skills. Help homely pulp blossom into blooming paper flowers, or add impish sparkle to a card with a misting of pixie dust. Wet and dry embossing are sure to impress, and stamping allows artists to leave their mark without making incriminating fingerprints. Alcohol inks are on hand to imbue paper with the look of stained glass, and other techniques in Lila's arsenal include cutting and paper piecing. Class sizes are capped at 12 students, so each artisan can peep the step-by-step instructions and receive personalized feedback.

Inside Children's Bookshop & Teaching Supplies, one can find literature for adolescents and infants just as easily as shelves and tables overflowing with colorful games and toys. Though the full-service bookstore's two retail locations focus on educational materials, such as school and art supplies, they also aim to give kids equipment that inspires fun. The store proffers a rainbow of glitter, crayons, and pastels; colorful picture books accompanied by CDs; and a range of modernized and classic board games such as bingo, dominoes, checkers, and mancala. To facilitate creative learning and instill children with an early understanding of zoning codes, the store carries interlocking-piece construction sets. Store staffers also arrange a wooden railway table and a Calico Critters Play Table.
