ClassBento is facilitating a bunch of delightful, hands-on workshops you can follow along with at home, and they’ll even deliver you all the supplies you need. There are a range of pottery and sculpting sessions facilitated by local studios and artists, including simple planters and platters and more advanced workshops like figurative sculpting. There's also kintsugi, a Japanese artisanal technique, where you can mend broken pottery with a gold-dusted lacquer, symbolising the process of repair as part of the object itself.
With many of us spending more time just pottering around the house, there’s never been a better time to try your hand at being a literal potter. Although they’ve had to close their studio doors to the public, a bunch of local ceramics studios have adapted their businesses so you can get busy moulding your own mugs, vases and assorted sculptural vessels at home.
Go on, allow the tactile task of rolling clay between your hands to remind you of the sensation of human touch as you get your Swayze on and re-enact that classic scene from the 1990 romantic hit Ghost.
