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.

Choose from Three Options

  • $29 for a two-hour Taste of Pottery class for two (a $70 value)
  • $29 for a one-hour Beginning Pottery Wheel class for two (a $70 value)
  • $79 for six one-hour Beginning Pottery Wheel classes for one, which includes a take-home pottery tool kit (a $166 value)<p>

During Taste of Pottery classes, students try their hands at the wheel before selecting premade pots to paint. Staff members then fire the painted pieces, readying them for pickup in a week. Alternatively, 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. Check the calendar for available class times.

Desert Dragon Pottery

"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.
