- $16 for a BYOB paint-your-own-pottery session, including one pottery item and materials (up to $30 value)
Participants select a piece of bisque pottery (up to a $22 value), such as a dinner plate, latte mug, or vase, before embellishing their chosen item with brushstrokes of multicolored paints. Each open-ended session includes all painting materials, glazing, and firing. Guests may also bring their own libations to sip throughout the visit.
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.
