Haven Art's expert clay slingers mold students’ minds in the basics of pottery shaping and spinning with private and group lessons. Learn to navigate the potter's wheel in Haven Art's spacious, 5,000-square-foot warehouse under the tutelage of a skilled instructor during a one-hour basic class, or bring five close friends or amateur plastic surgeons for private group lessons. Students can get elbow-deep in relaxing mud manipulation, spinning unshaped lumps into beautiful pots for housing plants or opaque fishbowls for hiding homely pet fish. After crafting clay during the first lesson, students return two weeks later for a one-hour session to coat their earthen pots and pans with paint, glaze, and bear repellant; pieces will be ready for pick-up after an additional week. With the private lesson, Groupon holders get an hour of direct instruction, plus plenty of time to socialize and partake of the bring-your-own refreshments.
Haven Art provides a blend of personalized instruction and open studio time, helping students young and old hone their skills in everything from pottery and stained glass to painting and drawing. Inside its 5,000-square-foot warehouse, the company conducts business among a collection of other studios, and an open floor plan enables creativity to flow freely on waves of inspiration or imaginary lava. For extra doses of motivation, visitors can step inside Haven Art's onsite gallery, which houses handmade pottery and jewelry crafted by local artists.
