Pottery workshop, Jordan
Traditionally, much ceramics were produced in Jordan. In many places you can still find the shards of it, also in the Wadi Rum! Different clays are used for various purposes. This craft has been revived for a number of years. Local women learn how to work clay, make pottery on turntables and in molds, and of course the art of glazing, often with traditional motifs that can differ from tribe to tribe. In the women’s cooperative in the Wadi Rum you can also find the symbols, old letters from a forgotten alphabet carved on the many petroglyphs. In this workshop you will learn how to make pottery and glaze together with these local women.
