Gatagara pottery is in a class of it's own in Rwanda. On this visit, you'll get to see and practice the techniques local artisans use to create the unique pieces easily recognized throughout the country. The pottery cooperative is made up of 13 people, who are in charge of every aspect of the pottery, including making the clay they work with from resources they harvest from local swamps and hillsides, and firing their finished pieces.
This is a 1.5 hour visit with a very flexible schedule. Gatagara Pottery is open from 9am - 12pm, then again from 1pm to 5pm. Arrive any time you'd like! In addition to the experience, you can purchase pottery direct from the Gatagara shop. Enjoy!
