If it weren’t for the archival nature of ceramics, we’d have little insight into the rainy-day activities of ancient Greeks. Make your own lasting, creative mark with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pottery painting at The Expressive Hand, a paint-your-own-pottery and sign-language studio.
The Expressive Hand caters to crafters looking to adorn cupboards with customized cookery. First, choose a piece from its cache of blank ceramic canvases, which includes plates, bowls, and coffee cauldrons ($8–$60). Then brandish a brush, sponge, or stencil to create free-flowing designs to commemorate an anniversary, birth, or family dinner devoid of passive-aggressive salt passing. After pottery Picassos finish their earthenware masterpieces, the helpful staff will fire and glaze it, ensuring its destiny as an official table accouterment within one week. All paints are 100% nontoxic and food safe to prevent lead poisoning and mutant meatloaves.
More than ten Yelpers give The Expressive Hand a 3.5-star average:
- The perfect place to spend quality creative time with kids. The staff are sweet and helpful, and nothing compares to the pride your kids will feel when they've finished making the perfect Mother's or Father's Day present. – Brendan O., 8/8/10
