Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of glass-fusion crafts, pottery painting, and more at Escape 2 Create. Your Groupon may also be used toward birthday parties or summer art camp.
A fully stocked pottery-painting and glass-fusion studio, Escape 2 Create lets artists express their visions with a variety of objects ready to transform into DIY craft projects. Patrons can practice glass fusion, the process of cutting and layering glass to form bowls, plates, candleholders, and jewelry ($19+), before the shop's glass masters fuse and finish pieces in a roaring kiln inferno. Pot painters can work in a time-honored tradition, emblazoning plates, bowls, or mugs ($16–$20) with anything from polka dots to abstract patterns to portraits of beloved pet platypuses.
While kiln-fired pieces will be available after 7 to 10 days, Escape 2 Create also offers heat-pressed items that are ready to take home right away. Staffers employ secret alchemical inks, pressing custom designs or the WiFi passwords of arch nemeses directly onto T-shirts ($17.50–$19), aprons, mouse pads, drink coozies, and more.
