Ceramics Studio, Altos de Chavon
save place
Time to play dirty!
Altos de Chavon is made of many magical places, but my favorite was the pottery studio. I got a special tour and introduction to the workspace by wonderful long-time resident teacher, Damaris. Quick history: 1984, shortly after the village of Altos de Chavon was built, a ceramics school opened, catering to youth all over the region. Creating pottery has been an integral part of the Dominican culture since the days of Columbus, and as a craft continues to thrive here. The ceramics workshop offers classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm to 6:00pm, cost US$35 for adults, US$30 for children. Please call Nicole Dickson (809) 523-3333 ext 5353 / (829) 918-1268, erac@robba.com to make a reservation, and confirm time/ price. __________________________ A warm thank you for my Dominican Republic experience — courtesy of Casa de Campo (http://casadecampo.com.do). @casadecampo
