Do you yearn for the days when items were painstakingly made by hand? Do you marvel at the remnants of pottery from thousands of years ago that is displayed in museums?
Clay pottery has been a part of human civilization since humans gained control of fire and communities became agriculturally oriented. You too can take part in this rich tradition. If you would like to watch people make pottery from clay, or perhaps even try your hand at it, here are the festivals this fall where you can do so.
