That Pottery Place Studio’s shelves brim with hundreds of unfinished ceramic pieces, each ready to blossom with a completely unique bouquet of colors and designs. Animal-painted plates sit propped alongside decorative birdbaths, planters, coffee mugs, and owl figurines designed to scare pigeons away from the china hutch. Guests can throw their creativity at these 3D canvases using the studio’s stencils, brushes, sponges, and dozens of glazes. Staff members make the rounds sharing tips on technique and helping sort through idea books with painters during open studio time.
Vintage beads, glass beads, crystal beads, African beads—at The Bead Shoppe, there's no such thing as a "plain" bead. The cozy store populates its shelves and nooks with all kinds of beading essentials, including findings, wires, and other crafting supplies. Although not found in containers or on shelves, advice and inspiration is readily available as well. That holds especially true during the shop's interactive classes, which are offered by appointment throughout the week. For instance, during the basic beading class, students learn the fundamentals of making necklaces, earrings, and bracelets that can be added to jewelry collections or draped around a cactus named Tiffany.
