I was not sure what to expect from this experience, but it was something my son was interested in doing. After getting on the bus to the Good Hope Estate, our guide brought us over to the artist!s studio. The Artist, David Pinto, showed us around his studio and talked about the different kinds of pottery he did an done different types of kilns he used. He talked to the kids, and was engaging with them which I enjoyed seeing. He also demonstrated how a pottery wheel was used. He had several pieces of pottery already made that we were allowed to choose from and paint. Once we were done painting, he had clay ready to be used on the pottery wheels. The kids seemed to enjoy it and he went around trying to help the kids and work with them so they were able to create simple bowls. He did let us know that if we wanted to keep one of the projects we or the kids created, he would be able to ship it to us for an additional cost, as it would take time for the clay to dry, heat it in the kiln and seal it, then ship it. So that is another option.

While we ate lunch, David put our painted pottery in the kilns to finish them. Once lunch was done, it was off to the Main house for a tour. The kids grew restless during this but our guide Tricia, was interactive and great with the kids. Once the tour was over, it was back to pick up our pottery and then we headed to the bus to head back to the ship.

The day ran from meeting on the ship at 9:15 and we returned about 2:00-2:30.

Overall it was a good experience for families and my son enjoyed himself so thatto me was worth the experience.
