Ever walked past a busker and thought, I could sing Freddie Mercury way better, or seen someone make a tyrannosaurus-rex out of a balloon and shrugged it off because you know yours would look better? How about that time you saw a painting by Monet and thought to yourself, I could make those lily pads really come to life. Well Picasso, prove it with today’s Groupon: Pay R95 for a three hour pottery class at Elza van Dijk Pottery and let your creativity and hidden talent out for the day.
As children, most people are taught all about the finger-paint, glue, papier-mâché and messy side of creativity in general. However, as they get older they forget just how much fun it is to, well, make a mess, call it art and not worry about cleaning it up. Today’s Groupon provides the perfect chance for budding artists, be it small children or the parents of small children, to create their own masterpieces during a three hour pottery class at Elza van Dijk Pottery. With a fully equipped ceramic studio and all the materials you’ll need to create your vase, fruit bowl, or roughly-round-shaped-something-or-other, the only thing you’ll need to do is decide what clothes you want to turn into an I’ve been potter-ing away with pottery smock.
Learn to spin the wheel with style with the help of the staff at Elza van Dijk Pottery and even pick up a few ideas for the bathroom, kitchen or even your car. Nothing screams creativity quite like a mantelpiece stacked with home-made ceramics. If however, pimping your mantelpiece doesn’t really grab you, then remember that somebody’s birthday is bound to be around the corner and these classes make for a perfect way to spend time with a buddy, as a gift for a buddy or to create a gift for your buddy. The final, fired product you walk out with will probably be difficult to gift wrap, but some stores are known to stock vaguely-roundish boxes.
After your first visit to Elza van Dijk Pottery you’ll be hooked onto the creative side of life no matter your age, your skill level or your ability to draw the perfect stick man. If you’re looking for a creative outlet then pottery just might be the perfect thing for you. Besides, busking is terribly hard work and think of all the blowing you’d have to do to create a dinosaur.
Pottery Fact: A famous potter was once quoted as saying that “Pottery is a simple, enjoyable art; about as simple and enjoyable as finding a needle in a haystack full of hamsters.”
