This arts and crafts hub hosts all-ages classes, birthday parties and walk-in offerings that revolve around six different "experiences": soap, jewelry, paper, candles, glass and ceremaics. The UWS center lets kids do the fun stuff (painting ceramic T-rex figurines, designing pendants), while its experts tackle the messy parts (the kiln firing, the glass slumping). In addition to goodies from Butterfly Bake Shop, an in-house cafe also serves coffee and wine, so you can renew your creative energy. Before leaving, peruse the boutique section—it's stocked with tons of cool arts supplies for kids plus a variety of gifts from independent designers.
