In a Nutshell

Students create wheel-thrown projects before glazing them, and a lifelong artist harnesses a unique approach to art during her instruction

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 this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $49 for one 120-minute wheel-throwing class and one 60-minute glazing session (a $120 value)
  • $75 for two 120-minute wheel-throwing classes and one 60-minute glazing session (a $200 value)

During classes, students learn wheel-throwing techniques to create clay pieces, such as a cup or bowl. When projects are completed, participants return at a later time to glaze their pieces, making them safe for microwaves and food. Classes are available during day and evening hours throughout the week, as well as Saturday.

Participants must wear short-sleeved shirts and must have short fingernails. Those with long hair must also pull it back.

Fire and Mud Studios

Artist Rae Holton sees energy. The owner of Fire and Mud Studios and lifelong arts and nature enthusiast harnesses her inimitable sight of what she calls "the vein-like serpentine flow of atoms" to create offbeat works of art in a variety of mediums. Raised among artists and craftspeople, Holton has dabbled in jewelry making, photography, cooking, and ceramics, and cultivated a love for teaching after stints as a children's ski instructor and after-school program educator. Helming her pottery-focused studio, Holton helps others unleash their inner artists through classes and workshops as students learn the history of ceramics or how to remove the head off a classical sculpture with a hedge trimmer.

Fire and Mud is a gem! Great studio, great instructor. My friend and I took a "wheel" pottery class and the instructor explained how to do things and why to do them. She also came over and helped me with my clay pots when I had done something wrong.I had never worked with clay and I had so much fun and learned so much. I recommend Fire and Mud Studios!
