Thinking Hand
School of Pottery

Pottery is commonly associated with the art of crafting pots. However, the Thinking Hand-School of Pottery is distinct in its nature, purpose, and approach. It serves as a dedicated space for nurturing mindfulness through clay, as opposed to focusing solely on creating finished clay products. What sets Thinking Hand apart is its strong emphasis on the experiential aspect of this craft, surpassing the mere pursuit of artistic creation.

Thinking Hand provides you with a sanctuary, a place to escape from the demands of daily life and simply be yourself. It’s an environment where one can find freedom and discover inner liberation. It stands as an open playground, offering a medium for exploring the depths of your mind, body, and creativity through clay. The teaching approach at Thinking Hand is designed to foster exploration and self-expression, ensuring that you have the freedom to discover your artistic potential.
