Creativity requires a suitable set of tools, a hunger to convey shared human experience, and an ability to get a reaction out of stubborn blank canvases. Equip yourself for expression with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a one-year membership to Make Meaning's Smile High Club (a $36 value). This membership will be activated the day after customers purchase it and will be valid for one year.
Make Meaning brims with skilled staff members who unleash floods of creativity with an arsenal of crafting supplies, earning kudos from New York magazine. The store’s membership program, the Smile High Club, allows members to waive all sitting fees (ordinarily $12/session) and pay only for any materials used while fashioning glass, paper, candles, soap, jewelry, or ceramics into festive masterpieces. Explore Make Meaning’s nearly 6,000-square-foot wonderland, composing a symphony of color and scent on a customizable candle or constructing stunning muse-lures from a cornucopia of jewelry materials.
Customers also receive a $25 credit toward any one of Make Meaning's classes, a $50 coupon toward booking a birthday party, and a 10% discount at the retail shop. A one-time VIP guest pass allows inventive duos to work side by side on soaps and stationery while brainstorming buddy-cop movie ideas. With this Groupon, customers receive a 50% discount on their first creative experience activity.
"This is a candy shop for creativity," Make Meaning's CEO, Dan Nissanoff, told New York Family. The crafting hotspot, named the Best Crafting Hub by New York Magazine, boasts a dizzying range of activities. Inside the brightly lit confines, youngsters and adults can make candles, jewelry, and soap. They can also paint ceramic pieces, create paintings on canvas, and decorate cakes.
The inspiration behind the business? The connections that Nissanoff made with his family when they worked on craft projects together. In order to offer that up to other families, he created Make Meaning, where he and his staff lead guests through craft projects, organize special events from corporate gatherings to birthday parties, and encourage inventiveness and fun.
