Besides using a pottery wheel, the easiest way to manipulate clay is to threaten to rebury it in the dark, sandy hole where you found it. Turn clay to putty in your hands with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $19 for a private one-hour pottery class for one (a $60 value)
  • $35 for a private one-hour pottery class for two (a $75 value)
  • $69 for a pottery-making session (seven three-hour classes) for one (up to a $315 value)

During private classes, a pottery instructor customizes exercises to each student’s experience level. Skills may include hand-building or wheel-throwing pieces.

Seven-week sessions help students develop and build upon new skills, tackling the basics in a Beginner Wheel or Handbuilding class or experimenting with coiling and designs in an Exploring Altered Forms class.

The Potter’s Wheel

Students who happen to glance through the window of The Potter’s Wheel can hope to do more than simply imagine their artwork on display. Inside the teaching studio and art gallery, work created by The Potter’s Wheel’s patrons fill the shelves: perfectly thrown plates, painstakingly crafted mugs, ornate vases for flowers, or even smaller vases.

Aspiring potters can sit in for classes, where they’ll learn to hone their skills in hand building and wheel-throwing under the tutelage of ceramics artists. These instructors lead their slay-spattered flock toward their individual goals with patience and skill, whether a student wants to showcase their artwork at a studio or create a new, better family out of clay figurines.
