Want to recreate a romantic moment like Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze did in Ghost? Well we’ve got the place for you on Saturday nights at Penguin Foot Pottery’s Happy Hour class.
Penguin Foot Pottery is a Bucktown/Logan Square-area ceramics studio catering to a wide range of ceramic enthusiasts. From the curious beginner to the experienced potter, PFP has something for everyone. PFP is located at 2514 W Armitage Ave. Chicago, IL 60647 (enter on Bingham St.).
Saturday night’s Happy Hour class does provide a wheel per student, and a perfect date night out. You won’t need to double-up like Patrick and Demi, but there’s sure to be some good-natured adult fun. It’s a walk-in class for $25 each person but with 6 wheels available that will fill up quick, so it’s best to call ahead and reserve [773-227-3575].
Aside from the wheels they have hand building and tile-making projects available and pre-made ware for glazing. The pre-made ware, like plates and bowls, will be fired and available for pick up later in the week.
