Kiln-N-Time’s ceramic pros guide unsure artists through the steps of customizing pottery in a sunny studio with yolk-yellow accent walls. Grownups and future grownups choose from a wide variety of bisque pottery pieces before claiming a spot at a tile-topped table and beginning to paint. Embellish a vase ($20+) with sassy polka dots, cover a latte mug ($20+) in a coffee-complementing hue, or fill the inside of a bowl ($15+) with cherry-shaped chocolates, creating a complicated metaphor for life and dessert itself.
Once fired, painted creations can survive spins in a microwave or dishwasher without damage. Alternately, procure a pair of Groupons to bring a friend or significant other to the studio’s twice-weekly date nights, during which libation-toting couples can bond by inscribing a pottery piece with the date of their first joint grocery purchase.
Sunlight streams in through the large windows of Kiln-N-Time's studio, where amateur artists paint canvases and throw pottery in a celebration of self expression. For a simple craft project, guests can grab a pre-made ceramic vase, mug, or bowl and embellish it with sassy polka dots, a coffee-complementing hue, or text of the answer to life's ultimate question. More in-depth projects see artists building their pottery from scratch with a lump of clay and pottery wheels or painting flowers and beach landscapes during BYOB sessions. The studio can also perform restoration and conservation work on art pieces or create custom tiles for homes.
