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 Groupon to Lakeside Pottery, on Newfield Avenue in Stamford. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get one custom handprint or footprint keepsake (a $60 value).
- For $48, you get a 150-minute potter's-wheel workshop (a $96 value). This option is good for ages 15 and up.
Lakeside Pottery offers ceramic-art workshops to inspire creativity in artists of all ages and skill levels, helping to create customized ceramic keepsakes and handcrafted items. Immortalize twinkling toes or fire-shooting fingers with a custom handprint or footprint. Dexterous digits are pressed into crafting clay, where Lakeside's expert artists shape the mold and decorate with text, painting, or colors of the customer’s choice. Each time-stopping piece is finished in high-fire stoneware fashion, keeping the item pristine and heartwarming for years, or until humans evolve another digit.
Learn basic clay-handling skills and terra-cotta soldier commands during a one-day potter’s wheel workshop, as Lakeside’s friendly instructors demonstrate how to properly twirl the wheel and do DJ impressions in the hands-on lesson. No previous experience is required, but students must be 15 years of age or older, and are asked to bring a towel for cleanup and a sponge-like imagination to soak up knowledge puddles. Check Lakeside Pottery's schedule for available class times.
