A pinch pot activity is a hands-on and creative pottery technique that engages participants in the art of shaping clay with their fingers. This simple yet rewarding process involves taking a small ball of clay and gently pinching and squeezing it with one’s thumbs and fingers to create a vessel or bowl-like form.
