Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon to Potter’s Wheel Gallery & Gifts, located on Farm to Market 1960 West. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a 90-minute child’s pottery class (a $30 value).
- For $25, you get a two-and-a-half-hour adult pottery class (a $50 value).
Professionally trained instructors at Potter’s Wheel enlighten pupils of every age and skill level in the artistic craft of clay wielding. In a two-and-a-half-hour class of no more than 20 students, you'll learn to mold a platter or sculpt a vessel for home-brewed cola with individually tailored instruction according to your pot-imitating abilities. Compose clay masterpieces by going electric with the potter’s wheel, or focus on more folksy hand-sculpted techniques. Four kilns and a variety of paints and glazes cement clay works into permanent fixtures in family collections of earthen heirlooms. Tinier mud manipulators can attend 90-minute kids' lessons, currently held on Tuesdays from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
