We have a crazy idea, so just hear us out: What if you gave your keyboard and phone screen a rest and busied your hands with a much older form of expression instead? Taller Dos Ríos, a workshop focused on high-temperature baking and stonework, is run by two young artists who bring a new meaning to happy hour. Intimate weeknight classes are offered to those interested in the ancient art of ceramics, no matter your level of experience. Whether you pull from pre-Hispanic styles or pop art influences, the result will be one of a kind and completely yours. Mix, form, fire — you don't have to be a pro to know that it's fun to get your hands dirty. Just wipe them clean before checking your phone.


A ceramics workshop for artists of all levels.
Because hands were meant for more than keyboards.
