Archaeologists examine ancient pottery to identify a culture’s preferred cooking methods and to determine which of its members was the World's Greatest Dad. Make timeless memories with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a clay-date pottery class for two at Fired Up Studios (a $120 value). The studio holds classes Fridays at 6 p.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m. or 6 p.m.

The mud-wielding masters at Fired Up Studios coach pairs through the creation of their own glazed beauties during clay-date classes. During the two-hour session, students learn how to work a potter's wheel, sculpting a functional piece of hardened putty to be bisqued and fired in one of the studio's four electric kilns. The studio furnishes potters with all necessary materials, including clay, tools, and whipped cream, and it holds class sizes to a maximum of eight students so that instructors can provide personal attention to each wheel spinner. Artful pairs can also bring their own beverages and snacks to enjoy during the session.

Fired Up Studio's 7,200-square-foot studio sits nestled on the second floor of a rehabilitated warehouse, where natural light streams through large windows. Students don't need any previous experience with making pottery or any sense of object permanence to enjoy the class.

Fired Up Studios

Started in 1998, Fired Up Studios has quickly evolved from a small pottery studio to an art center with classes and a gallery. Despite this growth, its mission remains the same: to raise the spirits of anyone who enters. In the 7,200-square-foot studio, experienced potters provide a judgment-free creative outlet for students and visiting artists alike, inviting them to have fun and experiment with the studio's collection of pottery wheels, kilns, and glazes. These potters also teach students how to throw clay, shape up elegant bowls and vases, and sculpt pixelization onto nude figures.
