Le Ceramic Cafe Studio
Le Ceramic Cafe Studio will allow you to sip on a latte or eat a sandwich, whilst creating some pretty magnificent ceramic art.
Here’s how it works: When you walk into the cafe, each table is adorned with all your painting needs (paint brushes, palettes, paint, and water bowls). Choose your table, and then head on upstairs where you’ll discover over 2,000 different pieces for you to paint. There are cups, bowls, plates, piggy banks, teapots, vases, pictures frames, jars, candlestick holders, garden gnomes, and more (you name it, they have it). Just check out this cute bowl…
Whenever you finish painting, you head to the cash and leave your object with the front desk to be glazed and fired in the kiln. This process takes a couple of days, so be sure to keep the receipt they give you as you’ll need it when you come back to the store to pick up your adorable piece of art.
