  • $10 for $20 worth of pottery to paint at the studio
  • $36 for three wheel throwing 101 classes (a $75 value)

Pottery painters choose from a selection of more than 1,000 pieces ranging from animal and monster figurines to coffee cups and dinner plates. Wheel-throwing students ages 9 and up gather on Mondays at 6 p.m. to mold small clay pots. Two weeks later, they return to paint their pieces at no additional cost. Click here to view the calendar.

During the 90-minute children's birthday party, an assistant helps kids age 3–8 paint small figurines and tiles by providing supplies and instructions. Then the assistant fires each piece before wrapping and labeling it for each guest. Party goers are welcome to supply their own food, and additional kids can attend for an extra fee ($14 per person). For an additional $10, Groupon customers will receive a custom hand-print party plate (a $30 value) to take home as a memento.

Clay Monet

Physics and art collied on Clay Monet's six pottery wheels as students transform lumps of wet clay into delicate pottery. While the earthen heaps spin at high speeds, students mold them into curved bowls, vases, one-time-use bowling balls with subtle movements and gentle pressure. In lieu of pottery wheels, they can also sculpt rustic pasta bowls and whimsical clay garden mushrooms by hand. Alternatively, they can skip the sculpting process all-together and paint an already completed bisque piece, such as an animal figurine, mug, or dinner plate.
