What You'll Get
Crafting pottery is an artistic way of expressing to the world just how much apple juice you need to store. Today's Groupon lets you accent your house wares with $45 worth of supplies and paintable goods for $20 at The Creative Escape Pottery & Mosaics Studio in Carmel. An adventure in creative expression for children, adults, and adult-children, the Creative Escape studio experience comes with no fees beyond the cost of supplies.
Some would say a creative escape is sneaking out the bathroom window using only your wits and your pocket ladder. However, the friendly staff at The Creative Escape encourages you to escape via the customization of serving plates, piggy banks, saucers, and more. Decorate a dish or craft your own mosaic with pieces ranging from $3 to $50, with many items around $20. Select from a wide range of tools and paint colors as you craft a personal magnum opus that will be glazed and fired by the studio in one week's time.
Adventurous artists can also expand their learning through a variety of art classes. These classes will let you delve into the subtle skills of glass fusing (starts at $30, depending on class), as well as how to mold a pot by hand using the centripetal spinning wheel ($30), as immortalized in that classic sensual scene from the movie Ghost Dad. Spirited painters with tenuous painting wrists, meanwhile, can benefit from the edification of a pottery painting class, which stocks its stylistic toolbox with technique lessons on patter design, stamp-making, lettering, and more ($30 each).
Sketching on the foyer walls with a purple crayon can open up new artistic worlds, but it can also result in a bucketful of scrubbing for your audience. Today's Groupon to Creative Escape gives you a healthy outlet for your bursts of creative inspiration and your morning milk a chic new cup to curdle in.
The At Carmel blog has featured The Creative Escape Pottery & Mosaics Studio, chronicling Ladies Night:
- While delicately painting the edges of a vase, Ntianu Sababu said this was her first visit to Ladies Night, and she enjoys “the open feel of the place.” Sitting next to her, friend Katie Price agreed with this sentiment, saying, “(Ladies Night at the Creative Escape) has a fun atmosphere where you can be creative. A place where enthusiasm is more key than how well you can paint.” – creedweber
Though there are few online reviews, one Insider Pager gives The Creative Escape a perfect five stars:
- I recently went to Creative Escapes with a group of friends for a girls night out. We had such a great time! They have a large selection of pottery to paint, as well as mosaics and other craft projects. The staff are helpful. We were all happy with our projects and had a great time completing them. – Christy B.
