Pottery in HTW classes

In January, the 5th and 6th class could finally make pottery again at GISA. They used a a special pottery technique from Sirigu, from the north of Ghana near Bolgatanga. First, the clay was mixed from powder. After thorough kneading and beating of the clay, the students first formed a ball. After that, the hollow was hollowed out and then one sausage after another was pressed into the clay. In the process, the fifth and sixth graders had to pay close attention to ensure that the shape didn’t get out of joint. Finally, they used spatulas made from a calabash to smooth the walls and straighten the rim. The clay bowl was finished. Our students were very proud of their work of art and are already looking forward to taking the fired bowls home next week.
