A lot of people here making their own ceramic pots are doing it at local community colleges rather than at home. There are a few threads here about making pots from concrete or wood.

I Googled, Pottery lesson, puebla mexico and got several hits, so it seems you are in luck.

Pottery

Aside from standard pottery making techniques, remember the following:
Bonsai pots must have feet, to allow for adequate drainage and room for the tie-down wires.
I don't think your area is frost-free, so for most of your trees, the pot & glaze must be frost-proof.
There is a tradition that the inside of the pot is not glazed, but this is not necessary. You can try some with glaze on the inside and some without, & see which works better for you.
Bonsai pots must be high-fired. They are usually what we call stoneware.
You can make glazed or unglazed pots. Unglazed pots in dark colors are used for conifers or rugged looking trees.
