Cad a dhéanfaidh tú

We will start by learning the basics of the tools and materials that we are going to use. Aprons are provided and students sit on up to four individual potter's wheels. We then prepare our clay and our wheels in order to begin the making. We walk through the whole making process step by step focusing on the details of each technique required to successfully place and form the clay. Once we learn the basic techniques we move on to simple design ideas that we can apply to our pieces. Once we are done, we discuss the basics of glazing and firing the pots.

Optional: Students also have the opportunity to let us fire and glaze the pots. Pots are shipped by post or if given the appropriate time (which depends mainly on the weather) can be picked up within about 7 days. The cost of firing, glazing and shipping is not included.

Other things to note:
Pottery requires patience and willingness to learn. We have all the tools and knowledge to help you learn. All you need is focus and relaxed energy.

A 33 year-old professional potter with a small local business "Cretan Spiral Pottery". I have 10 years of throwing and glazing experience and 7 years of sharing my knowledge with guests in my family's olive farm. I was taught by a third generation Cretan potter. I can guide you and your hands into making your first ceramic pots, following the traditional throwing techniques of Crete. Your pots can also be fired, glazed and shipped directly to your home.

We will conduct the pottery workshop in my family's olive farm which is located by the sea on the outskirts of the city of Agios Nikolaos. The workshops are held mainly indoors, in an enclosed studio with a small balcony overlooking the sea.

This was by far my favorite experience in Crete. And it was also my first time making pottery. From the hosts to the location to the actual pottery making. My friend and I had a blast. Costos is amazingly patient and guides you through the whole process step by step. We managed to make 5 different pieces within the 2 hours. I was so proud of my work that I had them shipped to my home since they wouldn’t be completely ready before I travelled back home. Exploring land and shop surrounding the pottery studio is also a must. Everything is so beautiful. So many awesome products to buy produced locally and on the farm itself.

It was a very nice moment, that’s a local activity where you can learn a lot about pottery with Costas, who is very kind and patient. You can keep your pottery and make it glaze to eat or drink in them ! The place is very beautiful, also you can visit the little farm who is very authentic. I recommand a 100% !
