    I would like volunteers to help me for approx. 5 hours a day , making clay, scrubbing pottery pieces for finishing up and so on. The staying period could be negotiable after oneday stay. The work would be differ depending on the day. I'm interested in food/dishes from different countries, so would be happy if you can cook your country food for us sometime if you can. ( If you don't like cooking, you don't have to do so. That's no problem.) I would also like to learn and practice speaking English.
