Besides using a pottery wheel, the easiest way to manipulate clay is to threaten to rebury it in the dark, sandy hole where you found it. Turn clay to putty in your hands with this Groupon.

Pottery experts lead approximately 10 to 14 students through a session in wheel-throwing, where they learn how to use a pottery wheel to create functional items such as vases and bowls. Students are not able to take their pieces home. Most wheel-throwing workshops take place on Saturday evenings. Check the schedule for class times.
La Mano Pottery
A pottery studio whose name literally means “the hand” in Spanish, La Mano Pottery beckons its many students of all skill levels to find out what their hands can do when given balls of unformed clay. Inside the friendly confines, experienced ceramic instructors lead their charges toward expressing their own creativity within a large, well-lit space. The staff also runs an in-store gallery of recently shaped pieces.
