The following is a guest post by 8-year old Shelby, who took a pottery class last Saturday with a friend at Good Dirt LA. Good Dirt LA is a pottery studio in Los Angeles, located in Del Rey neighborhood of the Westside.
I went to Good Dirt LA and I had a lot of fun. Lina taught us how to make a bowl out of clay on a spinning wheel. She told us clay is really dirt.
This is how we did it:

It was fun but kinda hard. After we were done painting it she said she is going to put it in the kiln to make it glazed.
We also made a cup. We got to use texture thingies that made the clay look like wood and stones. So cool! I highly recommend that you try out a class. Her dog is so sweet and adorable too.
