What You'll Get
Just as ancient civilizations decorated pottery to depict scenes from everyday life, modern humans paint plates to commemorate elections and successful plate-painting ceremonies. Invoke the innovation of the ancients with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pottery painting at The Kiln on 82 in Broadview Heights.
The Kiln on 82 caters to clay-centric crafters looking to stock cupboards full of custom-made crockery. To begin the pottery-primping process, painters choose a blank piece from The Kiln’s selection of paintable ceramics ($8–$60, with most falling in the $15–$20 range) and adorn their cups, plates, or ancient amphoras with 100% nontoxic paints, stencil tracings, and stamps. Skilled artisans are on hand to provide artistic direction and help beginning brushers ceramically celebrate an anniversary, birth, or shareholder’s meeting. Once pieces are properly adorned, they are glazed, fired, and ready to take home within a week or less.

About The Kiln-Pottery Studio
During the days of antiquity, artisans often recorded major cultural and historical events on the sides of their intricate pots. Although books and computers took over most of the archiving duties, the practice of painting ceramics as a means of commemoration continues today. At The Kiln-Pottery Studio, shelves of uncolored pieces await the inspiration of local artists and artists-to-be. After grabbing the necessary supplies, guests add their touch to one of the hundreds of available pieces, including platters, mugs, and bowls. Those interested in building their own creations can opt for a class in hand building clay or pottery wheel throwing. A series of workshops focuses on specific individual projects. Sessions are open to kids and adults, and can be reserved for groups or parties.
