FAQ:

What is the dress code?

Clothes should be simple and comfortable, better with short sleeves or possibility to pull up the sleeves.

We need at least 14 days to dry, fire, glaze ceramics, and fire again. We discuss technology with kids during the classes for then to understand and have patience.
