THE POTTERS’ WORKSHOP “PODNĪCA” IN SALDUS

Crafts

Saldus is a long-inhabited settlement with its history tracing back to a Couronian hillfort next to Lake Saldus. Kapelleru nams or the House of Kapeller is a centre of crafts and arts with the pottery workshop of Artis Kleinbergs nicely hidden in its basement. Items at the pottery “Podnīca” are made according to ancient traditions. In the yard, there is a smoke ceramic kiln, and public events are taking place to experience the ancient craft with own eyes.
