Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of self-reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of paint-your-own pottery and more at You Are The Potter in Greenwood. There is a studio fee—which includes the use of materials—of 50% of your chosen piece's price; should the piece cost less than $23, this Groupon will include the studio fee.
Dabble in artistry at You Are The Potter, where a supportive atmosphere nurtures creativity and visitors can decorate provided pottery with a bevy of colorful paints. Pottery pieces arrive bare and bashful, waiting nervously for budding handicrafters to adorn them with comely color schemes, plaid patterns, and high-end high heels. Attack a plate ($13–$28), mug ($13–$18), or bowl ($13–$18) with brushes, stamps, and stencils to transform it into a fetching objet d'art that explodes beautifully when hurled from the Eiffel Tower. Opt for a platter or large serving bowl ($20–$55) to tote future oatmeal sculptures in style while receiving helpful tips form the experienced staff and a caring ghost that guides customers’ hands. After being plied with paint, pieces are glazed, fired, and ready for pick-up within 7–10 days.
This Groupon is not valid with special offers, other discounts, birthdays, or diva night.

You Are The Potter
Surrounded by the bright butterflies, trees, and flowers painted on You Are The Potter's walls, patrons transform bare, gray dishware into vibrant works of art. After choosing a piece from the hundreds of raw bowls, platters, and mugs that line the shelves, artists use brushes, stencils, stamps, and ideas from project books or encouraging staff members to personalize their creation. Staff glaze and fire the finished products, making them ready to hold food or the attention of pets who have been told they contain food.
