Art classes were originally invented to stimulate the minds of young cavemen and teach their wandering hands to comply with cave codes of conduct. Give in to natural instincts with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of glass fusion and pottery classes at T Pots Pottery in Truckee, CA.
Creating pieces of pride worthy proportions is literally at your finger pinnacles with T Pot Pottery’s hands-on pottery and glass classes. If painting is the artistic expression of the day, patrons begin by choosing a piece, ranging from a $5 figurine to an $80 serving platter, before selecting paint colors and stencils to individualize their piece with no additional studio costs. Glass fusion classes ($45) or walk in glass fusing projects ($8-$80) let artistic expression flow from functional glasses to funky jewelry, while drop-in pottery classes ($15 plus $5 per 5 pounds of clay) let craftsmiths take the wheel à la Demi Moore, or hand sculpt one-armed statues de Milo. The 1,500 square foot space lets imaginations soar, as the friendly staff assists in creative construction and hand-glazing pieces, which go from kiln to keepsake in 2-7 days. Classes for all skill levels range from 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours, see website for class times or drop-in availability.
