Pottery has long been used as a medium for storytelling, from recalling the life of a fierce warrior on his urn to outlining a prized snickerdoodle recipe on his cookie jar. Let your tableware tell timeless tales with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pottery painting, classes, and more at Outside the Lines Creative Studio in Hilliard.
With a bevy of samples, stencils, and friendly advice, Outside the Lines helps lubricate the creative engines needed to craft one-of-a-kind pottery masterpieces. Dish decorators and bowl bedazzlers can take their pick of more than 275 pieces of unadorned pottery waiting patiently to be outfitted with strategically placed dollops and streaks of paint available in more than 90 colors. After choosing from a selection of dinner plates ($14), mugs ($13+), cereal bowls ($14), dog bowls ($17+), and animal figurines ($11–$22), blossoming artists plan a design strategy and apply a base coat. Classes in watercolors, drawing, or clay are available for participants to hone their artistic expression without painting a self-portrait on the neighbor’s front door. The two-hour Throwing is Good class ($25), held three times each month, introduces children and adults to the pottery wheel and allows each students to mold their own custom piece just like a set of dazzling brass dentures.
While enrobing goblets in glistening paint, guests suffering from painters block can turn to samples, stencils, stamps, cutters, idea books, and a knowledgeable staff for advice on how to recreate the Sistine Chapel inside a salad bowl. Outside the Lines doesn’t charge a studio or sitting fee for utilizing its relaxing abode, so brushsmiths can take their time while gingerly glopping precise pinstripes and polka dots.
