What you'll do

Warm cups, warm hearts! We will welcome you with a cup of coffee/tea and cookies, we will talk about pottery and introduce ourselves. Holding our full cups we will discuss about pottery making techniques, see pictures and each one will decide how his/her ideal mug should look. Then we will show you how to make your own ceramic cup and guide you step by step. You will be able to use pottery crafting tools and create a handmade clay cup. Anthi will make some wheel thrown cups and demonstrate the technique. You will afterwards decorate your creation, incising and colouring it. You can take with you the unfired cup or leave it to us to fire it and send it to you appr. 10 days after the workshop (extra cost added for the shipping fees). It's a hands-on experience to enjoy and remember!
Other things to note
No previous experience in pottery making is required. It is a beginners' course but advanced learners will have the chance to expand their knowledge.
Don't hesitate to ask any question :)

This experience was great! Marina and Anthi are amazing women! Anthi guided me step by step on how to make the ceramic pot and made it seem very easy! Marina offered a wonderful cake by the way! Everything was on time and my cup turned out to be extremely cute! All in all , I totally recommend this experience!

C'était vraiment génial, mon compagnon et moi avons adoré découvrir la poterie et nous prêter au jeu ! Je pense même m'être découverte un nouveau hobby grâce à Anthi! Marina nous a fait un savoureux cake au citron, un vrai délice ! Elle a même eu la gentillesse de nous raccompagner en voiture à la station de métro la plus proche à la fin du cours. Le seul bémol est que, comme nous repartions le lendemain matin, il était impossible de finir nos œuvres sur place. Nous avons donc dû trouver un atelier de poterie à notre retour en Belgique pour pouvoir finir de décorer et faire cuire nos tasses. Ça enlève un peu la magie du moment de devoir finir l'œuvre chez soi... Ceci étant dit, nous étions prévenus que faire cuire nos tasses nous même serait une éventualité si le temps manquait sur place mais j'aurais aimé savoir que même la partie décoration n'allait pas pouvoir avoir lieu si la cuisson était impossible. Je recommanderais donc aux intéressés de faire cette activité au moins 2 jours avant de repartir pour pouvoir profiter de l'expérience au complet. Dans tous les cas je recommande vivement ce cours de poterie c'était vraiment chouette !

I had such a great time making my cup! I learned a lot, and would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to have a different experience in Athens. In addition to the course itself, they provided coffee and delicious snacks.
