Pottery on the wheel is a relaxing and creative art. The first archaeological discoveries in Crete date back to 7000 BC. The Minoans still have a great influence on the objects made by today’s professional potters of our island.
We can guide you and your hands into making your first ceramic pot. A single lesson will give you great insight into how the wheel works and how the clay takes form. At the end, you will be able to take the pot you made home with you.
We offer two different types of workshops for all ages and levels:
For all ages and with all languages welcome, we offer you the chance to make a small pot with the help of our potter.
"Make a Pot" is offered with a reservation from 10:00 to 11:00 and it is
first come first served.
Every pot is made in 10 minutes and the price is 10€
For ages 10 and above (in English or Greek) we provide a comprehensive lesson which is perfect for beginners or even intermediate throwers learning the basics and beyond, as well as making your first ceramic pots to take home.
The duration of the workshops are
60 or 120 minutes and the price is 25€ (60') or 45€ (120')
The price is per person with the workshop having 4 spaces which remain open unless a private lesson is organised by contacting us
