A Chat with Sip and Sculpt

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?

In NYC, you never know what to expect. That's why at Sip 'n Sculpt, we aim for art to imitate NYC life. There are no rules or pre-determined sculptures to make, just a weekly theme and visual sparks for inspiration. Expert sculptors and teachers are readily available to guide you through developing your ideas and realizing your personal vision. Our philosophy is simple: individual process leads to individual product, ensuring each participant will enjoy a unique sculpting experience.

Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?

Participants receive their own sculpting kit which also serves as a takeaway container. We use high quality, non-toxic, brand name clays and compounds. The air dry materials are not archival and are meant as practice for the archival clays included in the kits. We encourage experimentation with materials, so we always have extra on hand. Also provided is a theme-related exhibit of images and objects for additional inspiration.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?

The idea for Sip ‘n Sculpt came about as a simple question. What will you create? We aim to put the mystique back into art, not take it away through formulaic, step-by-step instruction. The meditative nature of clay lends itself to participants enjoying a more exploratory, immersive experience. This is why we answer with a low-key instructional approach. Participants can also relax and enjoy dinner, drinks, and socializing if they so choose, or create something completely off-theme. This is no rules sculpting!

What do you love most about your job?

I absolutely love seeing people surprise themselves and us with their creations, and realize their personal visions through art. I love that Sip ‘n Sculpt offers an outlet for that journey. The end product always tells a story and is an instant conversation piece. The fun, light, and relaxing nature of sipping and sculpting at a cool venue, and the process of physically creating a three-dimensional work of art is the best part of it.

Customer Reviews

It was a fun experience. Took me back to my childhood days when the event organizers told us we would be doing our sculptures out of playdoh. I had a nice time exploring my creative art skills with the different sculpture designs. The venue location was cool too. It was close to home, trendy, and inexpensive food and drink prices.

My best friend and I did this as an activity to break up our usual routine and to get our creative juices going, and we absolutely loved it. It was a small class that night in particular, but we enjoyed it even more because of that fact. Jennifer was very sweet and served as a great instructor. The clay is great quality, so you definitely get what you pay for. The environment was great, and so was the wine!

Hi Penelope- I'm sorry that our class did not fit what you had in mind, but thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. As a new business, the best feedback is specific and happens in real time so that we can adjust class to meet your expectations. If I remember correctly, you made some very nice, display-worthy animal sculptures that I even posted on our Instagram page! We are passionate about creativity. Our aim is to provide a fun, free-form sculpture class for those seeking a creative outlet in a relaxed, bar/restaurant setting. Our emphasis is on your personal vision, your creativity, and your exploration, which is why we don’t dictate what to make. We do provide a weekly theme with examples and a professional guest sculptor who leads class in beginning sculpting techniques and guides you in realizing your ideas. If we did not fulfill this description, please let me know so that we can issue you a full refund, or feel free to try another session on us. Cheers, Jen
