A fantastic evening. It was just my girlfriend and I and we were taken very good care of. We had great fun trying to master the pottery wheel and the meal at the end was absolutely delicious (we are both vegetarian and Aristotelis made a delicious meal all with local ingredients). Well worth a visit!

I really enjoyed my time with Aristotelis. He's obviously incredibly talented and passionate about his art but also a human being who's thoughtful and interesting. I didn't feel under any pressure to be 'good' at anything and I could just play about and enjoy myself. Which is key for me. I think people with a greater interest in ceramic history would get even more out of it but for me it was perfect just as it was. He also made a vegan mousaka! Delicious. Highly recommended.

This was such a special experience with Aristotelis. His knowledge and experience gives such insight to Ancient Greek pottery. Watching him spin his potters wheel was wonderful and seeing the work that he does was a treat. He even made me a little cake for me, because it was my birthday. I highly recommend this adventure. You will learn a lot, have fun and have a deeper experience of Greek culture.

it was wonderful ! Aristotelis has s a soecial human being with a rare experience in something that risks getting lost in Greece to the damage of the whole world. He talked wholeheartedly about everything and felt like meeting again with an old friend. He left me even alone to paint pottery at his house yesterday when he was out and left me the keys in the door as though meeting again with an old friend. Greek pottery is fascinating and rich of unthinkable historical connections. Grateful of this special experience

Our evening with Aristotelis was delightful and one of the highlights of our trip. Because my husband was also a potter we felt we had a special connection and a particularly good experience but Aristotelis is such a good host and such a genuine person that I believe people at any level would have a great experience with him. I was very impressed by his passion for his art and especially by his desire to share his unique talent. I highly recommend this workshop.
