What You'll Get
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 $25, you get a beginner Try It! pottery class at Hinckley Pottery, a $45 value.
Led by a former New York City gallery owner, Hinckley Pottery's experienced staff is adept at teaching fresh potters how to turn mud into masterpiece. The intimately sized, one-hour Try It! course helps patrons bone up on pottery-wheel basics and decide whether or not to pursue more-advanced wheel techniques, such as creating a vase using only your thighs. The 3,300-square-foot studio, housed in an industrial warehouse, boasts 14 electric wheels, two kick/electric combination wheels, and one treadle wheel, in addition to two electric kilns, two gas kilns, and a propane-fired raku kiln. Try it! courses are available at select times.

Call ahead to reserve your space in class.
Hinckley Pottery does not yet have many reviews, but it has received a four-star average from three Yelpers:
- It's not only an outlet for creativity, but there is something insanely calming about playing with clay. This is like art zen. – Lindsay D.
- The classes are on the small side, which is a good thing to make sure that everyone gets a wheel, as well is able to ask questions and get help from the instructors. – Gayle G.
