Archaeologists examine ancient pottery to identify a culture’s preferred cooking methods and to determine which of its members was the World's Greatest Dad. Make timeless memories with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a couples pottery class at Create in Clay School of Ceramics in Emeryville (a $60 value). This deal includes up to one 25-pound bag of clay, but does not cover the cost for firing ($30/couple) or glazing ($5/piece). Couples may consist of two adults, or one child and one adult.

Entrenched in the West Oakland art scene, Create in Clay's instructors impart wheel-throwing and hand-building know-how to students looking to express their creativity in 3-D. Master ceramicists oversee three-hour couples classes and tailor subject matter to each guest’s skill level. Aside from ensuring unrestricted interaction between students and instructors, small class sizes also afford designing duos the chance to ask questions about coil-pot composition and what to do when clay is haunted by ghosts. Adult pottery pairs may bring along beer or wine to keep inspiration tanks fueled with visions of mantle-adorning vases, coffee mugs, and ceramic engagement rings.

Entrenched in the eclectic North Oakland and Berkeley art scene, Create in Clay School of Ceramics unites a fine-arts gallery of locally produced wares and an art-instruction facility under one roof. Inside the roomy studio, master ceramicists impart pottery-forging know-how to students, who perch behind 10 ceramics wheels and multiple hand-building stations as they create, glaze, and fire custom pieces. The seasoned artisans tailor each tutorial’s subject matter to guests’ individual skill level, striving to keep class sizes small to ensure unrestricted interaction and afford pupils the chance to ask questions about what to do when clay is haunted by ghosts.
