Slow Pottery & Me

11 Years Of Craft Entrepreneurship

11 Years Of Craft Entrepreneurship

1st January 2017, I got my first student. I rebranded myself as Slow Pottery.
I had one wheel at home, one wedging table. This course had no glazing, firing, only pottery wheel techniques.
1 student became 20 by June. I was teaching non stop as I had only one wheel. As soon as I hit 20, I took up a studio in Indiranagar. It was such a sweet start. Two manual wheels, two tables, one electric wheel. That’s it.
