If it weren’t for the archival nature of ceramics, we’d have little insight into the rainy-day activities of ancient Greeks. Make your own lasting, creative mark with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of paint-your-own pottery at muddworks in Great Neck. Painters will be assessed a studio fee that includes firing, supplies, and studio time ($8 for the first hour, $4 for the second hour).
Unleash dormant painting prowess on the ceramic surfaces at muddworks, where brush-wielding patrons of all ages can design and daub personalized pottery pieces with the help of a simple four-step artistic process. Whether you seek to clothe a naked figurine or create a cozier receptacle for a neighbor's shredded bank statements, muddworks hosts an expansive selection of clay canvases to fit any needs (pieces average $10–$20). Once clay-equipped, the helpful staff can steer your artistic vision in the right direction by providing idea books, paintbrushes, stamps, sponges, and stencils. After the piece has been kiln-fired and coached in public speaking, it will debut to the general public in seven to 10 days.
Celebrate adulthood and two X-chromosomes on Thursday's ladies' night, where patrons under age 16 are forbidden and guests aged 21 and above can bring their own wine, snacks, and toe socks.
