Besides a pottery wheel, the easiest way to manipulate clay is to threaten to rebury it in the dark, sandy hole where you found it. Make sure clay turns to putty in your hands with today's Groupon to Super Awesome Cool Pottery. Choose between the following options:
- For $8, you get to create and paint three Christmas ornaments (a $16 value).
- For $13, you get admission for one child to a Kids Night Out session (a $26 value).
Owner Jamie Moorehead of Super Awesome Cool Pottery hosts clay-pounding workshops and classes at her new storefront studio. Ms. Moorehead draws upon 12 years of ceramics experience as she guides children through molding, painting, and decorating clay Christmas-tree ornaments in the traditional shapes of gingerbread men, stars, and quasars—participants emerge with three resplendent pendants to take home and hang on a small conifer. The Kids Night Out session starts Friday at 6:30 p.m. and engages youths for three hours of pottery, games, and movies, letting parents go out on the town or catch up on seasons of Sesame Street. Kids Night Out does not include dinner, but kids can bring their own or bring an extra $4 for pizza and juice.
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.
