Cixi, a county-level city in Ningbo, Zhejiang province, is famed for its pottery culture and is home to a cluster of Yue kiln archaeological sites.

Yue kiln pottery was first made during the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220) in locations such as the Shanglin Lake area of Cixi, which was part of Yue prefecture during the Tang Dynasty (618-907).

A pottery-themed event was held on Sunday at the city's Kuangyan Experimental School, which features an educational program in pottery culture. A group of 10 expats visited the school to experience it.

Maryam, a young Uzbek woman who grew up in China, is very interested in Chinese culture. The trip gave her an up-close look at historic arts and crafts, including the history, production processes, innovative products and pottery-related music performances.

Check out some highlights of the event.
