Like induction into the international pig-wrestling hall of fame, throwing your own pottery imparts a sense of unparalleled accomplishment and thoroughly muddied hands. Forge a container worthy of bragging rights with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get the Potter’s Wheel Experience at Super Awesome Cool Pottery (a $15 value).
Channeling 12 years of ceramic-crafting practice, owner Jamie Moorehead operates Super Awesome Cool Pottery from her newly minted storefront studio, hosting workshops, classes, and more. The Potter’s Wheel Experience is held during open-studio hours and lets students wrap their hands around a slab of clay and a potter's wheel. Skilled instructors outline the various techniques for shaping a bowl or small tumbler, which can go on to double as a change dish, ashtray, or hot tub for refined pet gerbils. After the one-of-a-kind vessel is molded and dried, potters coat their creations in the eye-snagging paints of their choosing.
Super Awesome Cool Pottery
With more than a dozen years of pottery under her belt, Jamie Moorehead has squished her fair share of clay. She draws on this experience at her own studio, Super Awesome Cool Pottery, where she teaches kids to form shapes, mold, and paint decorative objects. Likewise, couples can drop in during date night to learn the art of wheel-throwing and how to recreate scenes from Ghost. The studio is also open to visitors after school or on weekends, when they can pick out pre-made ceramic bisques to glaze and decorate with provided brushes.
