  • Embrace the chilly November afternoon with a unique and hands-on experience. Attend a pottery class in one of Istanbul's quiet and intimate studios. Under the tutelage of skilled artisans, learn to craft bowls, vases or whatever catches your fancy. Handcrafting something together is not only a fun activity, it's also a great way to create lasting memories.
  • While molding the clay, let the gentle rhythmical movements bring you even closer to your partner. The intimate setting of the pottery class provides opportunities for soft touches and whispers, as you assist each other or ask for help. The heat of the kiln, the rhythm of the wheel and the tactile nature of the clay is perfect for sparking a romantic and sensual atmosphere.
  • After the class, with hands still covered in clay, and hearts full of joy, head to a nearby cozy cafe and warm up with a hot cup of traditional Turkish tea. Reflect on your experience, admire each other's creations and enjoy the charming Istanbul vibe.

Preparation steps:

  • Look up pottery studios in Istanbul that offer classes for beginners. These studios usually provide all the necessary materials so you don't have to worry about that. Make sure to book a session in advance to secure your spots.
  • Wear something comfortable and not too fancy, as pottery can be a messy business. Long sleeves that can be rolled up are a good idea and an apron may also be provided at the venue. Waterproof shoes are a good idea, as the floors can get quite wet.
  • Keep your mind open and be ready to play and experiment with the clay. It's all about the journey, not just the end product. Pottery is a craft of patience and letting go, so don't expect your first piece to be perfect. Embrace the imperfections, they make your creations unique just like your relationship!

Some tips:

  • Make sure to listen carefully to the instructions provided by the professional potter. Pottery might seem difficult at first, but with patience and dedication, it can be a very rewarding activity.
  • Take the opportunity to communicate and engage with your partner during the process. Ask them to help you when you struggle, compliment their work, and don't forget to have fun! This is a date, not a competition, so be supportive and encourage each other.
  • Lastly, don't be discouraged if your pottery doesn't turn out as you expected. Remember, it's about the experience, and you always have an opportunity to come back and try again. The important thing is to enjoy the journey together!
