Play in the mud: The Pottery Workshop
So much more than muddied fingers and Patrick Swayze moves, this more sociable pursuit is the perfect creative outlet for those who don’t mind getting their hands a bit dirty.
Pottery Workshop has recently moved into a larger space and now include a sales shop, gallery and educational studio offering both English and Chinese classes for adults, teens and the little ones including a children’s summer pottery camp.
Educational director and ceramic art specialist Ben Carter and staff teach a variety of styles and techniques from around the world.
“Here we encourage students to share our passion for the ceramic arts," says Carter. "Since 2002, we have held fast to our mission to bring high quality ceramic education to Shanghai."
