    Last week was quiet hectic for me. I needed a break and decided to head towards Sahara mall, one of the most happening places in town. As usual the Mall was crowded; I took the escalator to the top floor and found Café Ceramique on the right. It’s one of the places I’ve heard a lot about and have been waiting to visit but never found the time. Finally I was there browsing through the pottery section on display. What can I say, it’s a great place to dine, chill out and paint your own masterpiece! I spent more than 2 hours there….I can’t remember the last occasion I spent so much time in a coffee shop. I was too busy with my art work that I almost forgot to order :)

    Can’t recommend a better place. What began as a sensation in Dubai now has 2 outlets in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. if you want to spend some quality time with your family this is the right place. What more, you can even make a booking for birthday parties. An artist or not, go ahead and enjoy creating your own masterpiece!

    Guidelines for painting pottery:
    1. Choose It:
    2. Choose a shape from a wide selection of A+ quality bisque’s comprising of mugs, cups, dishes, tiles, moneyboxes, etc. The shop has more than 500 hundred cast and pressed bisque shapes.
    3. Sketch It:
    4. Plan and sketch your design, you can even select a stencil from the gallery of designs available and transfer it to your chosen pottery.
    5. Use It:
    6. Choose your painting tools. There’s a bunch of painting gadgets and materials available to use.
    7. Paint It:
    8. If you trust your skills go ahead and start painting, or approach the staff to teach you a few painting techniques.
    9. Leave It:
    10. Once you are done leave it in the shop for the final touch that undergoes the glazing and burning process.
    11. Own It:
    12. Comeback after seven day’s and pick your own master piece.
