After unwittingly creating The Thinker 47 times, Rodin at last envisioned his magnum opus: a heart-shaped bean-dip bowl with "Mommy" scribbled in the center. Bring your artistic dreams to life with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of paint-your-own pottery at Clay Fusion in Wake Forest.
Clay Fusion inspires the artist inside with a substantial selection of clay canvases for all ages and experience levels to decorate and invigorate. Begin by picking a hardened, fully formed piece from the studio's collection, which includes mugs ($13–$20), dishware ($13–$35), figurines ($12–$25), and platters ($30–$70). Then apply a rainbow of paints to masterfully depict a bald eagle, a basketball, or a bald eagle spinning a basketball on its talon. Knowledgeable, amiable crafting coaches stay on hand to offer ideas and instructions to any bewildered imagist. Afterward, leave your oeuvre for the professionals to glaze and wave in front of a blazing dragon's snout, and then return a week later to pick up the finished piece. Clay Fusion's prices are inclusive, meaning there are no studio fees piled on, and the price you see is the price you pay.
Leave the kids and male companions at home or in the arms of a mollycoddling stranger every Thursday night, when Clay Fusion hosts ladies' night. Clay Fusion is BYOB, so grab a gaggle of girls and gossip away while stenciling "Grrl Power" on the edge of a salad vessel.
