After the intitial introduction, the Kiguri Pottery Experience starts with a welcome of traditional songs and dances.  As a visitor, you are welcome to join in but those who rather relax, and watch can do so.

After the clay is dug and prepared it is time to start crafting. Your guide will show you several techniques used for making crafts out of clay. Together with other members of the cooperative, you are welcome to craft your own clay items using traditional clay and methods.

After you have crafted your clay items, the members of the cooperative will show you how the clay items are dried and burned. As this is also done using traditional methods, you are sure to learn something new.
