#Au pair Cultural Event# Chinese Pottery Making
China, as one of the world’s most ancient civilizations, has made a multiple of contributions for the advancement and improvement of human societies. It is fair to say that pottery history is a very important part of China’s history. The word “china”clearly shows that the country is the “home of pottery and porcelain” There is a legend said, in East Han dynasty, Chinese people sold many pottery and porcelains to Europe, with good quality and cheaper price, they got high praise, more and more people knew there is a country, abounds in china and porcelain, finally they just called this country to “China”:) Weather the story is true or not, we can see their close connection.
To let au pairs know more about Chinese culture, LAP invited the master of pottery to give them a lesson. Everyone in the workshop had a lot of fun and enjoyed so much! Look at the pictures!
