Pottery is a great way to work with the earth, as opposed to planting a half-finished painting and hoping the land makes it sprout trees. Create with this Groupon.

In one-on-one or one-on-two classes that include supplies and firing, fledgling potters spend an hour learning the ins and outs of throwing a pot on a wheel. Potters return once pots are fired to paint and retrieve their ceramic creations. Classes are during the week between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., or on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Each one-month membership grants visitors the use of equipment, a personal locker, shelf space for materials, 25% off firing and glazing services, and clay sold at wholesale prices. Members can stop in at the studio any day between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.
Clay Owen Studios
At the helm of Clay Owen Studios stands artist Autumn Tetlow, a multifaceted maker who counts painting, pottery, knitting, and crocheting among her specialties. At the studios—named after her grandfather—she puts these crafts on proud display: browsing patrons can snag baby hats, toys, and sweaters or make plans to decorate home surfaces with prints or ceramics sculptures of Autumn’s high-school economics teacher.
Not content to merely hold these talents on her own, Autumn also invites guests in for a variety of classes for adults and children. During summer and winter classes, students can learn how to craft their own stained glass, jewelry, or pottery—all while utilizing the multitude of art supplies on-site including eight pottery wheels, two kilns, and artist work tables. Students interested in bringing their own project ideas to life can also visit the studio during their open studio time.
