Adventures in Ghana: Kpandu Potters

After visiting the dam, we traveled further into the depths of the Volta region with the intent of finding Tafi Abuife, a village known for its Kente cloth. Somewhere along the way we missed a turn and found ourselves in the town of Kpandu. Deciding to make the best of it, I checked the guidebook and discovered that Kpandu is actually pretty well known for its pottery. Thus began our short excursion to the Fesi Shed of Kpandu Potters, which is a women’s cooperative. All of the pottery is hand made without the assistance of a wheel. I couldn’t leave without purchasing a little crocodile and pig. 🙂
