On the International Space Station, brave astro-pioneers pass the time by making crafts—namely, dream catchers to catch the dreams of any nearby aliens dreaming of attacking Earth. Make your crafting dreams come true with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of paint-your-own pottery, DIY mosaic crafts, and more at Busy Bees Pottery & Arts Studio in Audubon.
Busy Bees lets creative citizens adorn a variety of trinkets and treasures with chromatic brilliance. Upon arrival, visitors find a wide array of clay blobs ready to be massaged into works of art, as well as precrafted pieces to serve as utilitarian canvas. For a modest studio fee ($6), crafters can take advantage of unlimited paints, tools, and glazing and firing equipment to decorate a cat dish ($12) with theorems for an astrophysicist feline or transform a chip-and-dip bowl ($21) into an abstract masterpiece. Mosaic trimmings applied to mirrors, picture frames, and plaques appease those who prefer fractured beauty to monochromatic handiwork, and 3-D aces can build figures from the ground up with clay before finishing with pigment. The dedicated, friendly staffers at Busy Bees are always available to assist both veteran artistes and gaggles of first-time paint splatterers.
Busy Bees Pottery and Art Studio
A pencil peeks out of hole in the lid of a shiny red apple, bits of yellow and black fleck a butterfly's wings, and blue and green glass curves to catch the light from the candle it holds. These are just a few of the projects invented at Busy Bees Pottery and Art Studio, where visitors can paint bisqueware, sculpt clay, or fuse glass to make homes or city-bus windows more beautiful.
Long tables sprawl across the studio's checkered floor, and plates bearing pastel treats and serene landscapes polka-dot the walls for inspiration. A paint bar arrays samples of tiles painted in each color so artists can preview their ceramic's finished looks.
