This was something we've been wanting to try and so glad we finally did! It does cost $10 - bring exact change (or check) otherwise you have to wait to try to make change with another parent. Parking lot was semi-small, but there is a train station across the street so figure if parking is full you could park there. Class starts at 10am - so be there slightly early. It was slightly distracting to have someone show up 15 min late, but also then your kid is trying to catch up/ the teacher is trying to re-show the late comer how to do the project, but also get the rest of the kids all their materials. So really try to be there slightly before 10am.

The teacher Mikayla was awesome - she welcomed us in, and was great helping/giving direction to the wide range of knowledge base for the kids. We did a clay project, which they had a completed example and showed the kids what they needed to do - then the kids were able to go wild from there. We created a crazy creature and my 5 year old had so much fun. This is a craft you have to pick up at a later date - so they'll email us once finished. I am curious to see how our first clay experience turns out. Hoping my son did the project well/sturdy enough for the kiln and that it stays together. We'll definitely go again!

We've been "meaning to go" for year, and am so happy we finally got to it! An hour of skilled and supported craft work left my 7 year old inspired and asking to look at the listing to see when she wanted to go next. Kids are given help but also encouraged to explore, try, and succeed on their own. Fantastic hour spent for a very reasonable price ($10).

We went to a class last year and it was great. We made snakes out of neck ties and the kids are still sleeping with them each night! I thought it was a little pricey but we all had a good time. A note of caution - you have to be on time as the class had already started when we got there (it's not like the drop-in class at Creative Habitat) and the instructor seemed a bit put-off by our late arrival (15 minutes into the class).

This is a great Saturday morning activity run by SAC. We have enjoyed the staff (amazing!) and the projects that have come home after our kids have spent their mornings at the drop-in class. The drop-in nature makes it super convenient, and older kids are just as welcome as my 9-year-old. Nancy, the usual instructor, does a great job making the big kids feel like helpers and gives them a lot of room to be autonomous and really let their creativity run free. Highly recommend!...more
