DJ Ceramix made a name for himself by placing a slab of wet clay atop his turntable and spinning it into a beautiful vase by the end of his set. Impress the audience members of your life with today's deal: for $15, you get a one-hour basic pottery-wheel class, including glazing and firing, at Desert Dragon Pottery (a $35 value).

First-time clay slingers ages six through adult gain insight into the fine art of earthen manipulation during Desert Dragon Pottery's beginner-friendly one-hour pottery-wheel class. Under the supervision of an experienced instructor, students soak up the basics of clay management and beginning wheel-throwing techniques, gaining enough knowhow to create two–three small pieces during the session. Each one will then be dried and fired in a process similar to making blazing raisins. Return two weeks later to paint or glaze each keepsake, which is then fired a second time and is ready for pickup within a week. All materials necessary to complete the pottery are included—the clay itself, the tools and mud-magnetized aprons, and the nonstick spray for frying eggs on the finished product.

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.

Super nice!

Fun class but actual hands on time on wheel was not more than 15 or 20 minutes and you didn't get to keep what you threw which was a bummer! However we got to paint/glaze a provided piece to keep and choices were good. All in all fun but too short and instructor Mich was excellent. Definitely gives you the bug to throw more

i have just returned from a mini pottery class with my husband. I really loved how cozy and familiar vibes i received at this place. we had a really good time. they provided a guided and easy explanation of the pottery shaping and glazing. we will be back to pickup the pots and i will edit about how they turned out.
