Pottery Class Deals in Chicago
Always the practical one, your child's into functional art -- as exemplified by colored-on jeans, papier-mâchéd pots and pans, and the table with glue all over it. At Joliet Pottery Lounge, your son or daughter can fire up their creativity with $20 worth of paint-your-own pottery for $10. Located on Essington Road, this cute and colorful studio is an imaginative kid's paradise. Choose from the wide selection of pottery pieces, including mugs, plates, wall art, animal figurines, vases, and more. Then add those personal touches, protect and boost shine with a glaze, and let the friendly staff stick the piece in the kiln. You'll pick it up in three to six days, and your little artist will have the unique pleasure of drinking out of a mug that was actually meant to be decorated.
