Remember that famous scene in the movie Ghost where Demi Moore is at her potter’s wheel? Well, making pottery is still very popular. In fact, there’s a competition show across that pond called The Great Pottery Throw Down on HBO Max that puts potters against each other to win mini and maxie challenges and ultimately go for the crown. But working with clay doesn’t have to be competitive at all. Quite the opposite. Making pottery is a great way to still be creative and problem solve only in a more tranquil environment. Even watching those pottery-making videos is peaceful. We even found an online beginner’s guide. There are some local shops in the area if you are thinking of dabbling in making pottery and gaining new skills. Bermon Ceramic Arts right here in North Hollywood has been teaching people to work clay for over 50 years. The Potters Nook in Burbank also sounds like a laid-back and cool place to try a new hobby. It sounds fun! When you live at NoHo Senior Arts Colony, you’ll discover new talents and inspirations you never knew you had.
