Art helps people reach a wide audience without shouting from the top of radio towers, provocatively dancing behind a local TV field reporter, or tying speech bubbles to migrating birds. Express yourself with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $26 for one 60-minute private pottery lesson ($50 value)
Students create one to two pieces on the pottery wheel. About two weeks after the lesson, The Firehouse applies a glaze color of the student's choice and performs a secondary firing—students can collect their pottery after the second firing is complete.
- $35 for two 60-minute private pottery lessons ($70 value)
During the first lesson, students create one to two pieces on the pottery wheel. After a minimum of two weeks, students return for a second lesson, glazing their pottery with their own designs and color choices.
- $99 for six 60-minute private pottery lessons ($210 value)
This option includes three pairs of pottery wheel and glazing lessons, allowing students to work on advanced techniques or a project of their choice.
Private lessons are for students of all experience levels and include studio tools, clay, glaze, and firing.
Though you'd never guess it based on its white, soot-free façade, an unassuming bungalow in East Forth Worth has seen fire from every angle. The structure began its life in 1928 as a fire station to protect the area's growing population from faulty toaster ovens, and today it serves as a gallery and workspace for flame-taming potters.
Firehouse Pottery's community-driven studio enables local artists to create new work in classes for all age groups classes and then display their proudest pieces in exhibitions or among a rotating selection of paintings, drawings, and pottery on display.
Resident artists Keith Thomson and Garret Pendergrass create hand-made pottery and other clay artwork under tudor half timbered gables, welcoming audiences and protégés as they enter under a gabled portico held up by thick stucco columns. The intimate space also hosts events, which range from gallery exhibitions and BYOB gatherings to book signings at which only quill pens are allowed.
