DJ Ceramix made a name for himself by placing a slab of wet clay atop his turntable and spinning it into a beautiful vase by the end of his set. Impress the audience members of your life with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 toward paint-your-own pottery at Clay Café in Grandview. Each patron must pay a flat fee ($4 for children, $6 for students, $8 for adults) and then may apply the rest of the Groupon toward the price of the pottery.

For 13 years, the locally owned Clay Café has unearthed long-buried imaginative treasures in countless young and old cranial galleons. Let a friendly staff member help you first choose a piece of pottery from the café’s wide selection, which runs the gamut from dining materials such as mugs ($12+) and plates ($12+) to charming knickknacks such as piggy banks ($14+), figurines ($8+), and boxes ($12+). You'll then take your naked clay-thing to the painting floor, where you can begin outfitting it with vibrant designs and attractive pleated pants using a multitude of art supplies. The colorful and clean painting area is a fine place to get creative without worrying about a mess at home, and the finished goods (allow four to five days for pieces to be fired in a kiln) make for dazzling, earthy decorations, as well as thoughtful creative gifts.

Clay Café's cheerful studio is a great place to get friends together for a small ceramics gathering, ceramics rave, or first ceramics date rave. If you don't know how to paint, or only know how to paint the Venus of Urbino on a divan made of butter, the café’s staff can help you draw a stegosaurus. Kids love learning crafts, so make it a family affair—or let loose with paint-slinging thrills on a girls’ night out or all-ages bachelor party.

This Groupon is not valid with other promotions, such as free painting days.


Clay Café has been featured in Columbus Underground:

  • When you walk into Clay Café you instantly feel right at home. The space is decorated with what else? Clay artwork and there are pieces to fill up every inch of space and to inspire the hidden artist in everyone. It has a very unique charm and really gets the creative juices flowing. – Raechel Conover, Columbus Underground

Clay Café

When owner Julie Byrne founded Clay Café in 1996, she wanted to establish a cozy, unpretentious environment where families could spend quality time pottery-painting and embarking on other art projects. Describing what she envisioned to the Columbus Dispatch, Byrne stated, “We kind of wanted a grandma kitchen—something homey.” At Clay Café, visitors might forget they’re not relaxing in their own homes amid the studio’s popular mismatched chairs and flower tablecloths.

Customer Reviews

We love this place! A blank ceramic can be kind of daunting, but the staff is always incredibly helpful and will provide a lot of ideas. Every time we go, they have a different selection of pieces, so I haven't gotten tired of anything yet!

Had a fabulous time at Clay Cafe with my friend. It was the perfect girls day as we painted and talked. Looking forward to seeing the final product!

We had a girls night at Clay Café and it was a lot of fun. You can bring in your own beverages and snacks which is nice. The staff is very helpful and offers plenty of instructions for new painters.
