Un excellent moment passé avec Hafsa et Mohammed. Hafsa a su traduire et nous assister pendant toute cette matinée. Mohammed nous a fait partager sa passion avec un sourire toujours patient. 
Grace à lui, nous avons réalisénos premiers objets. Il est très agréable et vraiment gentil. Nous avons pu découvrir toutes les étapes de la poterie: le four, la pate, le façonnage. Merci pour cette très belle matinée. Nous venons au Maroc depuis 15 ans et apprecions chaque moment. Vive le Maroc et son hospitalité
