Are you looking for cute date ideas or fun things to do in New York City? Check out this beginners' pottery class, where you'll learn how to hand build your own mug.

With step-by-step guidance from a professional artist, you will use templates and slaps (flattened clay) to make a mug with a handle. This is a hand building pottery class, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to enjoy the tranquil feeling of sinking your hands into cool, squishy clay.

Nothing beats drinking your coffee or tea in the morning from a handmade mug, and it's even better when you've made it yourself! Your completed mug will be glazed and you can pick it up from the pottery studio one week later.

Teacher was absolutely wonderful, I had a lot of fun and I’m super excited to pick up my finished mug. Every time I had a question he answered my question. Plenty of space and great materials. Great time. Thank you and happy holidays! I’ll be back!
