Making with clay is an absorbing outlet for creative expression, and as well as being gratifying, it can be a therapeutic experience!
As with Yoga and Meditation, pottery has come to be viewed as a wellness activity. The mindful act of creating with clay has been shown to have health benefits such as relieving symptoms of depression. We also happen to think it's great fun!
