Bhavika posted on 11 June

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 handi-work begin!

Blue Bulb

A two-hour pottery class is conducted by Blue Bulb, where the basics of pottery-making are taught such as hand-building. You can choose a technique that you prefer {after it has been demonstrated by the instructor} and after a while, get time with the pottery wheel. There are classes in multiple locations – Chembur, Goregaon, Andheri and Dadar. Book yourself a class here now.

Price: Between INR 999–1,199

    Rekha Goyal’s Pottery Lab

    This is a lovely space in Bandra, quite like the eponymous potter lab, with a wooden table in the centre where you are cut off from the world. Here, you can just give yourself and your newly-found craft the time of day.
