Get creative with Mom’s gift this year! Spend time together making memories, create your own piece of functional pottery, mosaic, or chunky candle, AND PicassoZ ALSO has a little gift for Mom ourselves!

Bring her in to paint, mosaic or make a candle May 13 & 14, and we’ll give her a complimentary beverage coupon to Tea Largo AND a FREE charm of her choice from our Trinket Bar jewelry mixology studio.

You know what her favorite part will be? Spending time with YOU! We host families like yours each year and we consider it an honor! No art experience needed!

Seating available all throughout our PicassoZ studio, Tea Largo, & Breakables mosaic studio. Our upstairs party loft is available for open seating on Sunday only. Remember, our PicassoZ & Tea Largo gift cards are good all throughout our studios.

What’s on your heart?

This sweet couple, Tim & Mariana, painted this “heart with wings” plaque to display at their upcoming wedding.     So, what’s on YOUR heart?   Bring in family and friends or paint with a sweetie this month…or paint FOR a sweetie this month.     Our ceramic keepsakes are memories you can sign, date, incorporate a personal design, or just cover with specialty glazes which don’t need design work to them.

Pottery painting is completely beginner-friendly and kid-safe.

Our glazes are non-toxic and lead-free.  Handprints, anyone?

On Valentine’s Day, we hold an annual event that is always quite popular.   It seems people want to make memories and are looking for an interactive, creative way to do that…  therefore: PIcassoZ.   Mosaics are popular that day also, since they go home with you.   So plan to join us on Tuesday, 2/14, as all the tables in our building…upstairs in the Party Loft too, will be available for painters, making chunky candles, clay jewelry & mosaic’ing.    We dont accept reservations, its walk-in only.

This is a fun new make & take program for kids 6 & up. CHOP CHOP CHOP your choice of colors from kid-safe jewelry clay using our special chopper and learn how to blend and twist them together to make your own jewelry stones that go home with you! Stamp an initial and add a crystal, too!

Make 3 chunky “charm pops” out of 3 different color palettes or designs! We cure them in our infrared oven, so they turn to stone (almost).

Allow 30 minutes for curing, then they are ready to go!   All the charm pop jewelry & accessories we carry include creation of 3 charm pops, (18mm, which are compatible with chunk snap jewelry)!   Make 3 different designs and have 3 different styles of jewelry!

New concept coming to our mosaic studio…jewelry mixology

If you’ve visited over the last month and wondered what’s going on inside our mosaic studio, we have a surprise.  Our artist-in-residence Kim is giving our mosaic studio a facelift and making room for a hot boho jewelry trend of jewelry mixology!   This will be a walk-in, mix your own collage of charms, pendants, trinkets and baubles on vintage-look chains or hand-dyed ribbons.    Breakables Mosaic Studio will still be inside what will soon be called “The Trinket Bar”…(and we will FINALLY have a sign over our 4th space in our 4300 sq ft building!)    Our pottery pick up area will be moved to this side of our building, too.  We’re excited to launch all these new changes for Mother’s Day weekend!

So, our Junk Market Jewelry became so popular over the last couple years, we decided to expand it.   It’s such a great walk-in gift idea because it can be totally personalized and assembled in minutes or take as much time as you want treasure-hunting for just the right charms for your necklace, bracelet, key chain or even book mark.    Gift boxes and tiny little bags are complimentary when you purchase a chain or ribbon.

Remember, our Tea Largo and PicassoZ gift cards all work in all of our spaces, even for our Party Loft for a group outing!

Yes, our Trinket Bar will be open the same hours as PicassoZ as of Monday, 4/18.

Mosaics & CaNdLes

Looking for something creative to do you can take home with you?   Our walk-in mosaic studio, Breakables, is adjacent to Tea Largo, with cafe style seating so you can “break away”, relax, and create.

When we moved to our Cleveland Heights studio in December, one of the most exciting things we did was expand our mosaic studio!    For almost a decade, our mosaics were in “bits and pieces” on a wall in a corner of our studio.   It was surprising how popular they were for how little space they had.  Being a self-taught mosaic artist, the mosaic side of our building is my favorite!   It’s got loads of glass, ceramic, sea shells, and even drift wood pieces to work into your project.

Our shapes are visible and nicely displayed on the walls, and we even added ceramic words, letters and specialty baubles that are available at a minimal charge that can really make your piece pop.  Mosaics go home with you, so they are a wonderful activity if you drive in to spend the day with us in our silly building of creativity.

ChuNky CaNdLes belonged in our Breakables Studio too, since many of the candle wax options we have to build your candle with are indeed breakable.   We make slabs of thin colored candle wax that breaks apart, and then looks like a beach glass.   Of course, candle chunks are still on hand, for building a pillar mold candle or a glass jar candle, with your choice of fragrance!

Breakables is open:

Wednesday-Friday 10-6pm

Saturday 10-9:30pm

Sunday 12-6pm

 

 

Super Hero Day Event (aka Father’s Day) 6/20 & 6/21
