Töpfer Kurs|Pottery Course

Experimentally in May 2012 a Pottery Course in Agiassos was started. The procect was continued by ODYSSEAS beginning of 2013 until the Villa Azadi was closed and the refugees left Agiassos in summer 2013.

Why a Pottery course:

  • Refugees’ education level is very heterogeneous. A pottery course brings all of them in the same level.
  • They speak different languages. A pottery course is possible for all of them.
  • Working with hands. Handwork helps the young boys to feel creative supporting their psychology.
  • The “villa” is far from the village. The course is taking place in the village in a school that the municipality has kindly offered us.
  • The young refugees are living far from the village and without contact with the locals. The pottery course makes them feel part of the local society. The teacher talks about them to his friends and the village starts recognizing his students using their proper names!
  • Agiassos has a long tradition in pottery. The courses are provided by Giorgos Akamatou a local ceramist.
  • Support to the local economy. The teacher of pottery is local. The money we spend for the course is staying in the town of Agiassos and this is politically very correct in times of crisis.
