Choose from Three Options

  • $25 for a 90-minute Introduction to the Wheel class for one (a $50 value)
  • $49 for a 90-minute Introduction to the Wheel class for two (a $100 value)
  • $89 for a 90-minute Introduction to the Wheel class for four (a $200 value)

This one-off class gives aspiring potters a chance to play with clay without committing to a full slate of courses. During 90 minutes of guided instruction, students learn how to "throw" the clay, center it on the spinning wheel and mold it into cylinders—the first steps to fashioning more complex creations such as bowls, plates, and top hats. By the end of the class, each person produces and decorates a pot, which will then be glazed by staff, fired in a kiln, and ready for pickup in two weeks. Groupon customers can also register for the full series of classes at a 10% discount, and receive a 10% discount on any gallery purchases they make when attending the class.

Terra Incognito

The staff of artists working at Terra Incognito's 6,000-square-foot arts space 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.
