Ancient Technology at Your Fingertips

I have spent decades studying ancient pottery and conducting experiments to learn how it was made, I teach the art of ancient pottery in workshops. However, workshops are not the best way to learn for everyone, they can be expensive, often require travel and are a one-time learning experience so once the workshop is over it can be hard to remember what was taught. That is why AncientPottery.how was created so anyone can learn at a much more affordable price and students can go back and rewatch the lessons whenever they want. Now the knowledge of how to make ancient pottery is at everyone’s fingertips.

To see how it works sign up for our newsletter and get free access to our short video lesson “How to Make a Puki (Without Really Trying)”.

Ancient Technology Meets Modern Technology
