Very very excited! Just started on pottery classes today...a friend of mine conducts these classes in Maadi. Have been plaguing her to start so that I could join, and, finally I did!!
The class is fun cos she takes in only 4-5 students at a time, and, very reasonable.
The feeling of maleable clay in your hands is just awesome!!
It's so liberating to just be able to knead and shape it any which way that you want - no rules, no bounderies, no constraints, let your imagination run wild within the limitations of the piece of earth that you hold in your hands...
Giving shape to the clay is akin to making a baby.. its creation of sorts, albiet a lot less cumbersome and a lot, lot less painful!!
