Not Made in China’s instructional pottery studio schools prospective potters in the basics of ceramic creation. Patrons can grab a friend, lover, or beloved dental hygienist for a 2- to 2.5-hour group class and unleash their creative potential by crafting one-of-a-kind home décor or custom serve-ware, or memorialize an up-and-coming claymation starlet. The studio proffers all of the necessary supplies for artisans to mold vases, bowls, and figurines by hand or atop a potter’s wheel to the rhythm of a heartfelt pop ballad. Upon completion of the class, each student's best piece is glazed and fired in the studio’s kiln, and ready for pickup about two weeks later. Attendees should plan to wear old clothes and shoes they don’t mind getting dirty.
