Spend a hands-on day learning about traditional pottery in western Rwanda. The pottery cooperative consists of about 12 women and is located in the pine hills above town. This is the only pottery producing group in the region and each member produces on average about five or six pots a day. If you're up for a sunrise hike, arrive early and go down towards the shores of Lake Kivu (2km) with the women and a group of men to collect clay, then head back up to Mubuga sculpting and firing traditional pots, which are used for cooking and storing. Be prepared for rustic, and to get dirty. Chautal will work with you on various designs and sizes.
If it's market day, you may spend part of the afternoon at the cooperative's stall in town selling what's been made over the course of the week.
