A pottery workshop called “Gasht,” located in one of Rasht’s historic houses. This place is full of stories and has a unique ambiance, making it the perfect setting to create and share the joy of pottery. We have all experienced the feeling of touching clay or crafting something with it since childhood. For us, revisiting pottery is a nostalgic journey, a return to a sense of well-being that we might have lost along the way. We’re thrilled to spend a few hours with you, sharing this wonderful feeling and discussing it.
In this experience, we invite you to a pottery workshop for a few hours. We will start by introducing you to different types of clay and various pottery techniques. Then, we’ll get our hands dirty and create pottery together. Here at Gasht, we have the opportunity to work with a pottery wheel, try ceramic painting, or make handcrafted pottery. Each of these activities has its own unique charm and can bring a sense of peace and freshness. Typically, everyone finds their preferred method of pottery after a few minutes of experimentation, based on their current mood. From there, we’ll start crafting together.
The rest of the program is all about enjoying the sensation of clay, its coolness, and its freshness. We will provide the necessary guidance and be by your side as you create a small decorative or functional pottery piece. Finally, you can take your creation home as a memento or leave it here at Gasht for us to cherish and remind us of the enjoyable moments we had with you.
