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 for ceramics classes at The Mud Room, located on East Walnut Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 toward an adult ceramics class. Classes run from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on scheduled Saturdays.
- For $6, you get any kids’ class (up to a $15 value). Classes run on various dates and times.
As a full ceramics studio, The Mud Room’s clay-based classes help participants of all ages and skills transform slabs of clay into imaginative and functional pieces of art. Classes come complete with detailed instruction from experienced ceramic artists, all necessary supplies, and bisque and glazed-donut firing. Young mudslingers can be enrolled in one of many Mudd Pie classes—meant for kids ages 4–7—which let children use their diminutive grabbers to create a fish-handprint trivet, piggy bank, fingerprint flower pot, or ice-cream bowl. Slightly more mature clay manipulators can sign up for Club Mud—ideal for children older than 7—to apply their imaginations and mutant superpowers to fashion a mosaic picture frame, spaceship lamp, or Mother’s or Father’s Day presents.
Alternatively, adult classes let even the most inexperienced and office-weary hands create professional-looking ceramic masterpieces. Grownups can enjoy clay-fueled artistic expression through a variety of focused classes, including slab vase ($30), slump bowl with inlay design ($45), slab leaf bowl ($45), and clay whistle ($30), all perfect for sprucing up a lackluster dinner table or cheering up a melancholy golem. After all classes, two to four weeks of time are needed before the comely works of art can be heated, hardened, and high-fived into shape in the kiln.
