Besides using a pottery wheel, the easiest way to manipulate clay is to threaten to rebury it in the dark, sandy hole where you found it. Turn clay to putty in your hands with this Groupon.

Beginning Pottery Wheel classes spend one hour on the wheel, crafting two to three small flowerpots, bowls, or rounded pyramids before students leave their pieces for the staff to fire. Three weeks later, pupils return to glaze their creations, picking up their fully fired masterpieces within a week. All necessary materials are included, including a tool kit for those who purchase the first option. Check the calendar for available class times.

"From the first time I worked extensively with clay, I felt a connection to it, and a passion for it that has never waned," asserts Michelle Katz, owner of Desert Dragon Pottery. A ceramics artist for more than a quarter century, Katz harnesses her fine arts degree and aesthetic aptitude to teach students of all levels how to exercise their imaginations. Through a roster of classes, pupils explore the shapes of vases and plates, before leaving their finished works for Michelle to fire in her self-made, gas-fired car kiln. When not teaching, Katz often exhibits her work with pottery guild Arizona Clay Association, a collection of regional artists who share with the community their insights, masterpieces, and tips for creating life-like body doubles.

Customer Reviews

I really enjoyed my time at Desert Dragon Pottery. Mishy is very knowledgable and a great teacher! Creativity and passion exuded from her, and it made learning a little bit about the wheel so great. She came along side and helped me create my pieces, while still encouraging me to develop the skills needed. I can't wait to go back to glaze my pieces!
