Sabine and Khatri at the Talking Clay Ceramic Studio

 

New students at the Talking Clay Studio last month. A lovely family of 6 visited the studio. A mix of Nepali and Swiss folk. Of varied age group. It was a first for the studio to welcome young people. 2 of the family are young and learnt the 3 basic handbuilding techniques – Moti (11) and Mary (15). It was absolutely delightful to show wheel work to Sabine and Khatri (Catharine). The 2 swiss sisters. They loved clay work and enjoyed finding a new activity to do together. They hope to learn further in Nepal/Switzerland. Here are some pics of the time we shared and their creations. You can see some of the work they are involved in in Nepal on their website www.himaal.org
