“We had the BEST first experience at Blue Door for 1/2 day camp. My daughter loved the instructors, her pieces came out beautiful and they were all so different and creative. Also the owner and teachers went above and beyond to make sure she was comfortable and safe with regards to her nut allergies. We can’t wait to go back to work at the studio again. I highly recommend Blue Door!” -Amie
