Pottery school in full swing

26.03.19

The Lettie Stuart Pottery School started at the beginning of March 2019. There were 10 excited students who came for the first day and got introduced to the staff of the Lettie Stuart Pottery center and the curriculum ahead.

It is almost one month now into the programme and the students are really pleased with what they have learned so far. They are super enthusiastic about coming real potters and getting their hands on the potters wheel is one of the highlights of the month. We will be monitoring the progress and are very excited to see their products coming to live over the next few months.
