Looking for a fantastic, last-minute, handmade holiday gift idea? How about paint and glaze ornaments, a personalized ‘handprint’ plate or a glass-fused bowl you can craft together with the kids?
Now through December 20th at KHS Pottery in Ballard you can paint and glaze a fantastic ornament that will be ready in time for Christmas. We love that they have scheduled the classes before and after typical naptimes. A variety of other classes start after the holiday season — think wind chimes, textured cups and pinch pots. Glazed with food-safe, lead-free finishes, your creations will be favorites for the dinner table and beyond.
Paint the Town offers hand and footprint artwork – always a home run for grandparent gifts. With the ceramic studio’s convenient University Village location, you & the kiddos can work on your art project before or after your other shopping. PS – Check the calendar for “Parent’s Night Out” events, where you can drop the kids while you shop (or enjoy a date night).
If you’re ready to think beyond the homemade coffee mug, a glass-fused tile or bowl from Paint Away at Redmond Town Center may just inspire your inner Chihuly. Throw around a little glass art lingo like ‘Tack Fusing,’ and ‘Slumping’ and the gift recipient will be awed by your and your kiddo’s creative expression.
