Create your own pottery like our ancestors

Create your own pottery like our ancestors

This craft dates from the Neolithic, period during which the Prehistoric Man shaped clay containers for the storage and cooking of food.

Pottery is linked to the consumption of vegetables and cereals. Keeping them in containers will replace the simple pit dug in the ground exposed to animals and bad weather.

Cooking food will also be facilitated by the use of fire-resistant containers.

Beyond its utilitarian aspect, ceramic was also used for artistic purposes as evidenced by the figurines of "goddesses".

During this activity, children, from 4 years old, plays with the material and its imagination.

Shape your pottery using the Neolithic technique, decorate it and take it away at the end of the day.
