Few things can catch a snack thief red-handed as efficiently as a freshly painted crimson cookie jar. Keep track of your sweet stock with today’s Groupon to CozyMelts in Huber Heights. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get admission for two to the Clay Cutout Club (a $30 value). The class takes place on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and admission includes one pound of clay for each person and a free return visit for painting.
- For $5, you get $10 worth of pottery and paint with complimentary kiln firing, or merchandise such as candles and gifts <p>
Brightly colored masterpieces fill CozyMelts’ lavender-hued digs as patrons chatter together and channel muses to create personalized gifts and décor. During the Clay Cutout Club, duos deftly maneuver a slab roller to design their own unique plaques, ornaments, or trick frisbees out of raw clay. A subsequent visit lets burgeoning artists emblazon their clay magnum opus, and a master molder offers tips and help throughout the entire creative process. Pottery-painters at large can select a favorite piece from a wide range of ceramics including plates, vases, and sculptures ($1–$30), and transmogrify the colorless item into a work of art with a kaleidoscopic array of paints and newfound creativity. Within one week, a kiln firing cements glaze onto the piece, preserving it for display in house trophy cases or in the office of a sensitive bull coworker.
Cozy Melts intoxicates the mind with the subtle scents of candles and warmers. A line of WoodWick candles make sounds like a crackling fire, whereas 100% soy candles provide a steady burn with a limited environmental impact. For scent lovers with a DIY streak, the shop also runs candle-making classes and offers glass-painting, pottery-making, and paint-your-own pottery sessions that let their creativity shine.
