We went here not really knowing what to expect. Got there right at 10am (I recommend you go early, it appears to get quite crowded as the day goes on). The two of us (both adults...okay...kids at heart) had hoped to do the metal sculpting but after a less-than-friendly reception in the metalworking building (perhaps they thought women couldn't weld) we headed over to the mosaic area and settled in there. A few hours later, projects complete, we went on our way. Project pickup is the next day for some of the stuff. make sure you know that before you start. There is food and drink available for purchase although I question the safety of eating and drinking in an art studio.
The project areas appreared to be standard-fare in terms of supplies, options and prices. Most of the staff was great, helpful for the kids and us kids at heart. There is a building for ceramics, jewelry, glasswork, mosaics, painting and of course the metals building with the angry men. The clientele are mostly families with kids (in the summer, most from Illinois) but if you know that going in, then it's not too annoying. They also have "adult nights" which look to be fun for us elderly folks.
My recommendations would be - 1. Be prepared to go early. 2. Be prepared to spend more money than you thought (but that's not a bad thing), family bonding and all that 3. Be prepared for many kids and cats in the art studios 4. Be prepared to get crative and have fun! 5. Be warned that you will likely spend more TIME here than you thought. Do not book your day too full. As i said, we went right at 10, I thought we would be there an hour. We were there close to three.
