Ceramics and Pottery for a Day in Cappadocia + Best tours advice

Pottery art isn’t really new to Cappadocia; its origins date back to the Hittites. Making pottery was also seen in Çatalhöyük, in Anatolia, during the Neolithic period (7000 BC). It didn’t stop there; the tremendous handcrafting skill has been passed down until today, making Cappadocia a notable spot. Cappadocia has a wide range of pottery/ceramics workshops, with new styles and products continuing to emerge!
