Learning to do pottery with Mohamed has been an experience I will never forget . Thank you  Nathalie and Nahid for your wonderful organisation and flexibility . I enjoyed my stage immensely and learned a lot from Mohamed , from de beginning , he was always welcoming , explaining techniques well and being open and chatty
I learned not only about pottery but also Moroccan culture and some Arabic from him .
Everything from Mohamed's workshop , training and to Naahid's patience , translation and support was perfect !
Thank you all for a wonderful time .

 I really enjoyed making the pottery objects with the help of a patient artisan and a competent translator. Thank you Mohamed for translating and facilitating the learning of pottery. The artisan was cool and the guide fascinated us with his knowledge about Moroccan handicraft, culture and traditions.
Thank you for tea and cakes! :)
Thank you Mohamed the pottery maker, thank you the guide and thank you Ateliers d'ailleurs for an amazing morning in the pottery village.
