The New Phoenix Pottery’s resident instructors Lauren and Deirdre bestow artistic expertise upon students of all levels through an exploration of clay’s creative and functional possibilities. The kiln jockeys provide all necessary tools and materials for classes, allowing pupils to fill homes with art without adopting a litter of muses. During wheel-throwing classes, students’ hands gradually fashion bowls, cups, and vases as clay revolves on quickly spinning gramophones. Alternatively, hand-building classes free minds to ponder creative sides as instructors teach the delicate manipulation of earth into such three-dimensional works of art as animal figurines and ornately decorated pitchers. Students must be 18 or older, and will receive unlimited access to the studio as well as appointment-based access to The New Phoenix’s gallery, which showcases work by students and local artists. Classes are limited to 12 students and are subject to availability, so calling ahead to reserve a spot in upcoming sessions is essential.

The New Phoenix Pottery

Beneath a protective sheet of plastic wrap, newly formed bowls and vases in all shapes wait their turn to enter the fiery kiln that will turn them into finished pieces of pottery. These pieces are the end results of The New Phoenix Pottery's classes, which take place six days a week and allow beginning and advanced students to mold reclaimed clay either by hand or atop a spinning pottery wheel. Both adults and children can attend, providing a multigenerational outlet for artistic dreams or a healthy release of pent-up anger at Clay Aiken.

This groupon was soooo much fun and we really loved the family experience! There were so many things to learn but it turnes out great... You get your glazed and finished piecea about a month following the course and the artist proprietor was fabulous
