Pottery By Manjari Kanoi

Manjari Kanoi’s pottery studio in Kolkata will teach you how to use a lump of moist clay on the potter’s wheel to give shape to your thoughts and creativity. Her pottery workshop is a kind of therapy that will help forget your stressful life and teach you to be close to nature’s elements of air, water, fire and earth. At Manjari’s studio on Rowland Road, you'll find a creative ambience for learning and making pottery. She will make sure every lesson is personally guided by her and her team of skilled potters.

Wild Strawberry

Thanks to Wild Strawberry, learning life skills are not boring lectures that you get to hear often or read about on how you should be putting your life back together. Priyanka Chatterjee, the brain and heart behind the initiative, focuses on it through storytelling, theatre and different art forms like clowning, heritage trails, visual arts and film. And that is some hobby that is worth investing our time in!
