Leaving impressions on pottery can give the ceramic masterpiece both a distinct texture and a longing to see your face once again. Leave a lasting mark on art with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a hand-building pottery class at Living Water Pottery in College Station (a $30 value).
With more than 30 years of clay-slinging experience, Living Water Pottery fills noggins with molding knowledge through classes and open studio sessions. Release an inner sculptor from its soul cage with the hand-building pottery class, which guides students through the hypothesis, creation, and fruition of a personally crafted pottery piece. Split into two visits, the first class provides two hours for hands to push and pull at 5 pounds of clay as one-on-one attention aids in intricate molding techniques, including slab building and pinch potting. Whether whipping up a decorative candy bowl or art-deco shooting plate, the completed ceramic will be delicately baked in a toasty warm kiln after the first session. The one-hour follow-up visit, scheduled one week later, will present the newly cooked project naked and awaiting a modest coat of paint before it is placed tenderly back into the kiln to seal in the final touches.
Living Water Pottery offers lessons to kids as young as 5 years old. Students can spread out among the airy space of Living Water Pottery's studio, which is decorated in wooden tables, spinning wheels, and self-effacing neutral hues that let the clay-based art take center stage.
