The pottery master was very good and extremely helpful
"The pottery master was very good and extremely helpful"
This experience was certainly fun. The center even provided a translator. The pottery master was very good and extremely helpful. The time flew by as he is also quite chatty. I didn't think that anything I created would turn out, but I was surprised at how good it looked.
