Where To Get Crafty
Make Meaning opens in Thousand Oaks
Everything you need for seven different crafts—and no cleanup? Sounds good to us. Make Meaning, the creative emporium that’s taken over the kids’ arts-and-crafts scene in New York, has just opened a 4,000-square-foot location in Thousand Oaks. Kids and parents can try cake decorating, ceramics painting, paper crafting, candle making, soap making, and jewelry making; each activity has a designated station with all the prepped materials you need. Walk-ins are welcome, but there may be a wait; reservations are recommended. They do birthday parties for kids ages one and up, too. Also in the works: Mommy + Me Mini Morning classes for the under 4 crowd. A Make Meaning outing doesn’t come cheap, though: admission is $12 per person (unless you sign up for the $149 annual family membership), and there’s a project fee on top of that, starting at $8 per craft.
