We were there for a small workshop. It was an incredible day and amazing experience. We learned how to make pottery on our own. Hadara was so nice to work with and very great engaging with the kids. Highly recommended!!!
Come and get messy and creative in Hadara’s ceramics studio in Jerusalem.

We just had such a special couple of hours with Hadara at her ceramic studio. Hadara is an artist with many years experience and offers workshops for adults and children. You can call her to arrange a family workshop too – which is what we did!
Hadara is happy to take all ages although I would worry that young kids would not have much patience or be able to make much…or might break something…so I would recommend this for kids age 3 or 4+. We took a mix of boys and girls age 4,6,9, 10,12 and everyone LOVED it. Hadara was great with the kids and explained how to work with wet clay, and tips and tricks to make beautiful pieces of art. Our children made bowls, trinkets, door signs and even a sculpture. It was very calm, and a nice break from touring around. The best thing about this is that everything turns out great in the end, and you are only limited by your imagination…we all had so much fun just creating. Hadara was patient and gave everyone the help they needed while encouraging them to go with their own ideas. Also the kids could make as much as they wanted so it is great value per person bearing that in mind! We are so excited to see the finished result after they have been glazed. I will post up the ‘after photos when we get them back!
Note that the process of drying and glazing can take 2-4 weeks depending on the size of what you make so if you are here on holiday make this an activity for the beginning of your trip!
As promised our finished masterpieces!
