Pottery satisfies humans’ innate need to be creative and to use our hands to touch globby things that aren't anatomically correct organs made of jell-o. Scratch your creative itch with a backscratcher made of clay with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a one-day introductory pottery class at New Mexico Clay (a $35 value).
Boasting more than 25 years at the same location, New Mexico Clay’s current owner Brant Palley and a staff of certified teachers provide pottery classes for adults and children of all skill levels. Intro to Potter's Wheel is a hands-on, three-hour initiation into the workings of the wheel and the wheel's general shape, while Intro to the Slab Roller familiarizes students with the key tool for dish-making and for flattening nickels until they look like quarters. Kids can sign up for Kids and Clay, a three-hour exploration of artistic techniques in clay-making. All of the tools and materials are provided for you. Classes are subject to availability.
