When was the last time that you did something for the first time? We can’t remember and if you can’t either, here are some hobby pottery classes that will help you change that. A few hours out of the weekend, and you’d have learnt a new skill, have had something to take back home and had a positive answer to the question we just asked. Let the handwork begin!

Potter's Place, Mahim

This studio in Mahim is run by a self-taught potter, who's known by the name of Shalan Dere. She specializes in ceramic home decor pieces. When you enter her studio, you're taken to a magical world of figurines, pots, vases, sculptures, and much more. She churns out her clay in the garden area, and conducts workshops for people on request. You'll learn a variety of techniques, both wheel and hand techniques. You can call her directly for discussions on the workshop cost.
