If you've always wanted to be a great potter, you really need to talk to someone. If you however want to learn it as a pleasant hobby and diversion, here's a good option.
Saptaparini is conducting a special pottery workshop for children and adults from 19th to 24th February. The participants will be taught pottery basics, clay-modeling, pottery on the potter's wheel and also hand-moulding. In clay-modeling, 3 systems - the coil, slab and pinching systems - will be taught. Participants can bake their clay creations and take them home to paint them in colors of their choice, once the workshop ends.
The pottery classes will be conducted by Jaiprakash, who has worked at the Craftworks Department of the JNTU College of Fine Arts. He currently runs a clay-crafts factory at Rajendra Nagar.
The registration fee is Rs. 750, and the timings are from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. If the participants exceed 15, then another time slot will be given, from 10:30am to 12:30pm. Please contact 6666-7707/6682-1789 for further details.
