Tahanan Pottery, Quezon City
Since becoming infatuated with place attachment and my relationship with Manila I have come to appreciate her so much more. Since my paradigm has shifted and I learned that loving a place really has to do with my own choices (and attitude), I give myself a little kick in the wet when a phrases such as, “There is nothing to do here,” creeps into my ungrateful mind. MANILA HAS SO MUCH TO DO!
Tahanan Pottery is 3 (maybe 4) floors tall and on the entry level is a quaint pottery shop while the upper levels are spaces for classes, pottery wheels and drying (kiln). The classes offered at Tahanan are super affordable and thorough. I had two friends take their Basic Wheel Class and they had multiple classes, hours of practice and ended up making and keep a number (7-10) pieces.
each artist has a display with a bio profile next to their works for sale. There are a dozen different artist with works on display. manila really has a thriving art scene.

Manila, you have everythaaang! You really can find what you’re looking for. Just make sure you’re always looking. :)
