Like building a new home, writing an impassioned love letter, or performing laser eye surgery, painting a work of art is more interesting when you do it yourself. Put your hands to artistic work with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of do-it-yourself pottery painting at CobbyGoose in Milford.
CobbyGoose lets cooped-up creativity run wild within its pottery-painting studio, in which concrete creative concepts materialize into finished, painted products. Instead of staying home and painting all the dishes again, customers can hop into the workroom and choose a chunk of pottery (prices range from $8–$100 apiece), then select from a palette of more than 50 polychromatic tints to give the chosen vessel a subtly lovely or invisibly jarring appearance (a $6–$9 studio fee will apply).
Masterpieces must be left with CobbyGoose's staff, who will dry, glaze, and fire each piece to shiny perfection. After 7 to 10 days, pieces will be properly cured; artists can opt for in-store pick up or have their work dropped off at their doorsteps.
