Full description
The tradition of pottery making is alive and well in the Nepalese town of Bhaktapur. This can be best seen at the 2 adjacent pottery squares where your 6-hour tour will take place. During the daytime you can see people working in the traditional way, spinning their wheels to make all sorts of ceramics out of the large lumps of clay.

Amidst this inspiring scenery your pottery workshop is organized in one of the dwelling houses, just next to Pottery Square. This is a real workshop where hundreds of pots are made every day.

During your class you will be taught the principles of making pottery and will be involved in all the parts of the process, from processing the clay to actually spinning the wheel.

At the end of the fun and informative workshop you will have enough skills to make your own small pot to take home along, with the memory of your great learning experience.
