What we do...
ClayNation is an art studio where anyone can walk in to create beautiful, functional art projects. This is not just for artists- this is for everyone. All ages, all skill levels, all people! The studio offers Painting, Mosaics, Canvas and Glass Fusing as well as special camps, classes and workshops. We have all the tools you need to create something unique and special. ClayNation is great for all ages and all skill levels. No reservations are required. Just walk in, make art, have fun, and get hooked.
How it works...
In addition to the cost of your project, we charge a flat $8 studio fee per artist, per day. This fee covers all finishing work (ie: Glazing and Firing, Grouting, or Fuse Firing) as well as staff guidance and use of the studio and it's materials (ie: Paint, Tiles, Glass, or Design Aids). Don't have time to finish your project in one sitting? No problem. Simply take your project home and return another day to complete it - pay only a $4 studio fee for additional visits until you are done. Type your paragraph here.
Painting . Mosaics . Canvas . Glass
Select a mosaic surface, some tesserae (tiles) and get creating! We have a large selection of surfaces including plaques, mirrors, trivets, frames and tables. We also have a huge selection of tiles! We really love mosaics because they always look professional and high end when they are completed.
Please allow one week for your project to be grouted and finished. We also have grout-to-go kits available to take home in the event you would like to "make-and-take" your piece and finish it independently.
All the fun of a Paint Nite without the problems- you paint what you want, when you want, for as long as you want.
We have 2 great canvas sizes to choose from:
16 x 20" for $25 or 12 x 12" for $15
We also have over 100 designs to choose from and easy to follow step-by-step instructions- it will feel like you're in a class but you are in control!
Of course our experienced staff is always available in case you need some guidance. And don't forget- we are happy to accommodate groups for parties, fundraisers and events. Ask for more details.
Glass fusion is our newest adventure. By layering and firing glass you can create beautiful jewelry, night lights, trivets, spoon rests, sun catchers, bowls, plates and more! The process is easy: choose a base, cover with a design layer, add some accents and leave the firing to us! You also have the option of slumping your fired glass project again into a mold. The possibilities are endless.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for flat fusing glass projects and 3-4 weeks for slumped projects. Make sure to plan ahead for special occasions to allow time for the firing of your glass projects.
