Popsicle sticks and macaroni are sufficient for crafting creations that impress grade-school teachers but pale in comparison to ceramic’s ability to harbor fragrant flowers and attract ghosts. Shape impressive ceramic handiwork with today’s Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of paint-your-own ceramics sessions, supplies, classes, parties, and more at Kiln Kreations in Woodbury.
Offering a fun and relaxed environment, Kiln Kreations puts beauty in the hands of the beholder, leading to a quiet sense of accomplishment rivaling that of a financially successful mime. Over 700 ceramic pieces are available to douse in splashes of vibrant paint colors while a helpful staff of professional muses offers pointers and gets your creative juices unstoppered with stamps, stencils, and idea books. Beads and magnet-sized trinkets starting at $2 help spruce up ceramic concoctions, while larger items such as mugs, plates, and banks range from $20 to $26. Each session includes the cost of unlimited paint colors, tool use, glazing, staff assistance, kiln firing, and confidence-boosting compliments. Your molded masterpiece will then be heated and hardened in a kiln—making it safe for food and dishwashers. You'll be able to pick it up in five to seven days. All paints are water based, non-toxic, and lead free, ensuring that ceramic statuettes don’t transform into city-stomping monsters that need to be disposed of by Power Rangers.
At Kiln Kreations, recreational artists can craft striking items with impressive displays of steady-handed glazing that would shame even the most lustrous of donut-topped honey hams. Call ahead to schedule a studio time and finally follow through on your idea for the world's first sippy stein.
