Ever thought about making your own pottery? Think it¡¯s difficult? Actually, basic pottery-making is not as hard as you may think. And if you¡¯re interested in giving it a try, check out ShuiGuiQi Art Studio on JiuGulLou Street. This is a great place to create your very own pots.
Upon entering into the studio, I find that the gallery is stocked with a variety of exquisite and lovely works. Some are produced in-house by the owner, others come from guest pottery-makers from all over the world. At the end of the gallery is the studio where you can make your own pottery works.
The owner will tell you some basic knowledge about the pottery making and teach you some skills. Though the mistress does not speak English, she can still teach you through demonstration. The price is RMB 50 per hour, and RMB 10 per design item. If you are satisfied with your own work, you can pay another RMB 20 to take it home.
