I found out about a local pottery studio that sometimes organizes classes. Last week they posted an event on Facebook titled “Make yourself a mug”. I have always wanted to make stuff from clay but never had a chance before. I called my family, and they all wanted to go too. Even my mom agreed to come though she claimed she was too old for that.
The class was today, and we all went, and we all made our own mugs. Each in their own style. The above photo is of my little cup. My mom and her partner made big coffee mugs. My brother made an angular mug with sharp edges, and his wife made a huge cappuccino mug.
The mugs are not ready yet. Now they need to dry, then they will be fired in a kiln (sort of an oven) and after that coated with a glaze, and then we can collect them.
If you have a chance you have to go to a pottery! And take your family too.
