  • For $45, you get a date-night pottery class for two (a $100 value). Classes are held on some Fridays from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and on some Wednesdays from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The pottery professionals at Zen and Now Clay Studio demonstrate basic hand-building techniques during their 2.5-hour classes. After instructors provide all the necessary supplies, pupils complete projects, such as platters, mugs, and clay coffee to fill the mugs. Solitary sculptors enjoy focused attention during the private pottery class, where they can attempt wheel throwing and hand building in an audience-free environment. Couples revel in date nights brimming with complimentary bread, cheese, and wine as they craft sentimental tokens of their affections. Alternatively, little ones age 5 or older nibble on healthful snacks as clans of three—led by at least one parental figure—enjoy a bond-strengthening mud mash during family pottery classes. A family larger than three can add up to two people at an additional cost ($10 each), which can be paid the evening of their class. However, instructors ask that families claim all additional participants and potential stowaways when they make their reservations.

After classes, instructors glaze and fire each student’s piece, which will be available for pickup, and put down, and pick up again, two weeks later. Guests should claim their seats 24 hours in advance and arrive for class wearing comfortable clothes that won’t fuss if covered in clay.

Zen and Now Clay Studio

The adults hanging out inside Zen and Now Clay Studio look blissfully filthy. Soft clay slicks their hands and sticks to their smocks as they sculpt a pastoral scene onto a platter during a class or develop their own style of relating to Patrick Swayze during open studio time. In the white, utilitarian workroom, artists gather around a central table for hand building—helped by tools such as a slab roller, extruder sets for creating tubular shapes, and slump molds—or form clay on one of several electric pottery wheels. The staff later glazes and fires all student work in a process that takes about two weeks.

Adding to the enjoyment of creating art, Zen and Now's instructors organize events such as couples nights that give adults a chance to enjoy wine and cheese in the company of people they sculpted themselves, and a Boy Scout pottery merit badge workshop encourages kids to explore creativity in the studio and in the broader community. Helping students further explore 3-D modeling, the studio also offers drawing and painting classes in watercolor and Sumi-e, a classical form of East Asian ink painting.

I bought this Groupon as a gift for my husband. He had a very beneficial lesson with a talented instructor from Zen and Now. I was glad to see this offer and am happy with the purchase. It provided me with an opportunity to purchase a meaningful gift for him. It was definitely a good decision! I would recommend Zen and Now to others and plan to take a class there myself.
