Potter

One of the oldest world‘s crafts you can try at the manor, is called pottery. This craft was established in the 12th century in Lithuania. Mostly Samogitians were famous for the pottery though it was also popular in other parts of Lithuania.

You will find out how to prepare clay, work with it and see the results. We instruct Manor visitors and encourage them to try pottery. Although you can make a small earthen object quite quickly, but it is not the end – it has to be dried and fired twice at temperature of 1000ºC. Decorating also requires much accuracy.

You are welcome to learn more interesting things from our dilligent potter and try this craft at the Living museum at 12 a. m. on weekends.
