- On a cool November evening in Istanbul, you and your partner head to a local pottery studio. You are greeted by the friendly staff and given aprons and a brief introductory lesson. You both enjoy molding the raw clay, gentle spins of the pottery wheel, crafting gorgeous pottery pieces. You both cheer each other on, immensely enjoying the process of creation. You even create pieces for each other as a token of this lovely evening.
- After the creation process, you let your pieces dry and are told when to come back to glaze them. This allows for a follow-up date to complete your handmade creations. The joy of seeing your piece after it is fired and finished is something truly special to look forward to.
- At the end of the date, you exchange your creations and can't help but admire each other's work. You leave the studio hand-in-hand, filled with a sense of accomplishment and a renewed appreciation for each other's creativity.
- Before going for your pottery date, you would need to book a class at a local pottery studio. It would be good to confirm the rates as well as the exact things that the class will cover. Dress in clothes you don't mind getting dirty, as clay can leave stains that are hard to remove.
- You should also decide on what kind of pottery design you both would like to create. It could be a classic bowl, a mug, or something more creative. Having a design in mind will make the process smoother.
- Finally, remember to arrive early. This way, you can have a quick tour of the studio, familiarize yourself with the tools, and start your class on a comfortable note.
