What You'll Get


Archaeologists examine ancient pottery to identify a culture's preferred cooking methods and to determine which of its members was the World's Greatest Dad. Make timeless memories with this Groupon.

$20 for a 90-Minute Introductory Lace-Pattern-Plate Pottery Class ($40 Value)

During classes, which take place Fridays from 7 p.m.–8:30 p.m. or Sundays from 11 a.m.–12:30 p.m., participants of all ages create their own lace-pattern drop plate. Plates are ready for pickup from the studio after two weeks.

Terra Incognito

Longtime potter David Toan's technical expertise has put him in high demand in his field. Over his career, he’s helmed custom ceramics projects for Quaker Oats, architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, and numerous other designers. In the 1990s he spent two years working with Illinois Institute of Technology graduate students to meticulously recreate the composition of tiles discovered beneath the floor of the Laurentian Library in Florence, Italy.

At Terra Incognito, the 6,000-square-foot arts space he founded in Oak Park, Toan and his team of artists pass on their knowledge to students, teaching them to throw clay on the wheel, build shapes by hand, or sculpt perfect teacups with their hands tied behind their backs. Groups work in classrooms furnished with different types of kilns—gas, electric, wood, or sodium carbonate powered—each designed to handle different projects. Classes on metalworking and basket making expand the school’s scope beyond pottery. The space also functions as a gallery filled with the finished ceramic work of well-known and emerging artists.
