Pottery is deeply rooted in Cretan culture and tradition. Minoan pottery in particular shows how a peaceful, prosperous society can inspire one to transform clay into magnificent pieces of art.

Try a pottery workshop during your stay in Crete and bring your family closer to the fascinating art of clay.

A local crafts-person will guide you through the city workshops and explain the process of creating pots and vases and the history of pottery on the island. Finally, you will have the chance to play with clay, and try creating your very own pottery object. If you’ve never tried pottery before, this activity will be a memorable experience, and the kids will absolutely love it!

Both you and your kids will be given the chance to bond while creatively working together as well as express yourselves in an artistic way.

Be an ancient potter for a day and create your very own ceramic artifact!

The pottery workshop is based in Heraklion, but we can help you find pottery workshops near your location in Crete. Please contact us and ask for suggestions!

Ideally combined with our guided tour in the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion or the guided tour at the Palace of Knossos.
