For $12, today's side deal gets you $25 worth of ceramics and more at Sykesville Pottery and Art Center. This Groupon is not valid toward parties or silver clay.
At Sykesville Pottery and Art Center, pottery pros and artistic novices alike can partake in a hands-on activity that produces eye-catching home decorations and, in a pinch, cannon fodder. Visitors can choose to paint premade ceramic pieces, available in more than 200 styles—such as cups, bowls, teapots, vases, and cookie jars—and ranging in price from $3 to more than $75 each. You may apply your Groupon to the studio fee (half the price of your chosen piece), which allows budding artists to use all equipment and glazes available in more than 100 colors while gleaning helpful tips from idea books, traceable designs, and a helpful and enthusiastic staff.
Those looking to get a fistful of mud can sign up for a pottery-making class such as Introduction to the Pottery Wheel, which offers three 90-minute sessions ($99) and includes up to 15 pounds of white firing clay, as well as the use of professional-quality pottery wheels. Or opt for a glass-fusing class ($75) that lets participants create striking pendants, jewelry, and ergonimical glass slippers lined with glass Dr. Scholl's inserts.
Sykesville Pottery and Art Center
Inside the new digs of Sykesville Pottery and Art Center, visitors get to indulge in a variety of artistic endeavors, no matter their experience level. The paint-your-own-pottery area beckons participants to select from 200 bisque pieces such as vases, platters, and teapots that they can decorate with pictures and texts of their choosing. Students can even make their own pieces using a pottery wheel in a variety of classes. Glass fusing allows artists to meld disparate pieces of glass together to form inimitable designs or crystal balls that don’t work, and Tiny Hands crafts invites youngsters aged 2–6 to delve into creative projects they can share with their families.
