Cafe Monet expands Westgate location with more studio space

Cafe Monet, a "paint-your-own pottery studio," will expand its Westgate location in February. The studio, located at 4477 S. Lamar Blvd., Austin, is growing into the unit located next door, which formerly housed Merle Norman Cosmetics. The added space will function as a full clay studio with eight potter wheels and two large tables for hand building with clay.

Currently, Cafe Monet offers visitors the chance to paint and decorate pottery to take home. With the expanded space, customers will also be able to shape the clay and follow "clay recipe cards" to create their own pottery pieces from scratch. According to studio owner Jules Winson, the revamped Cafe Monet will present a unique opportunity for walk-ins to explore pottery making.

"It's the only place like this in Austin, and it's certainly the only place in South Austin," Winson said.

The studio will also offer birthday parties, team-building events, ladies nights, homeschooling programs and six-week courses "for those who wish to expand upon their knowledge."

Cafe Monet also has a location in Central Austin on West Guadalupe Street. 512-892-3200. www.cafemonet.org
