Without kilns, humans would be forced to heat ceramics by spending days using magnifying glasses to hit them with concentrated sunbeams. Reap the artistic benefits of ceramics without using incineration alternatives with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of paint-it-yourself pottery at Purple Glaze's studios in Brookside and South Tulsa. This Groupon does not include the cost of Purple Glaze's studio fee ($6).
Commence your creative process by choosing a paint-ready piece of pottery from Purple Glaze's collection of hundreds of artifacts (pieces range from $5 to $50). Then use your imagination and the studio's computer-generated idea center to come up with imagery that's wildly creative, beautiful, or commemorates the ancient Athenian victory at Marathon. When you are finished painting the underglaze, Purple Glaze's staff will fire your work to make it a superb piece of pottery ready to be filled with flowers, pencils, or wishes. Finished pieces, which are food-and-dishwasher safe, are available for pick up three days after your initial studio visit.
Purple Glaze's cheerful studio is a great place to get friends together for a small ceramics gathering, ceramics rave, or first ceramics date rave. If you don't know how to paint or only know how to paint the Venus of Urbino on a divan made of butter, the friendly staff can help you draw a stegosaurus. Kids love learning crafts, so get multiple Groupons and make it a family affair—or let loose with paint-slinging thrills on a girls’ night out or all-ages bachelor party. This Groupon cannot be combined with Purple Glaze's studio specials.

Purple Glaze Studio
Purple Glaze Studio's now manufacture 90% of all the cool ceramic shapes they offer at each studio, reflecting a belief to keep it local and import the least possible. Instead, the Oklahoma-oriented Purple Glaze Studio welcomes neighbors inside to paint hundreds of ceramic bowls, frames, and figurines created in the Tulsa area. Stencils, sponges, and stamps assist crafters as they paint their projects, and an idea center helps jumpstart flagging imaginations. The studio also invites guests to assemble bright tiles and stones into mosaics—a perfect activity for a girls’ night, a birthday party, or discovering that you’re actually colorblind.
