Pottery Lessons

Tour Experts can arrange for you to participate in pottery lessons, a unique opportunity to learn how to create beautiful vases and pots with terracotta. The material that was extensively used by the Minoans since the early Prepalatial period is easy to use. With the cheap terracotta the ancient Cretans – Minoans created amazing artifacts. Follow us to a local pottery workshop and start forming the pots and vessels yourself. As simple as that...

Depending on the starting point of your private tour, the pottery lessons are held in local workshops all around Crete: at Lassithi Plateau, Heraklion at Thrapsano village and Rethymno at Margarites village.

The price of the tour includes transportation, the guiding fee, translation of the commends of the pottery expert, the material that will be used for the lesson (clay).

For the tour we recommend a full day to enjoy the experience of the pottery lessons. But it can be organized also for a half day program depending on the starting point of your tour. The minimum number of participants for the pottery lessons is at least 4.

The pottery lessons can be combined with a visit at Knossos (for a full day tour) or the museum of Heraklion, the cave Of Zeus at Psychron or even a visit at a winery. Tour Experts can organize tailor made tours in Crete to match your needs, just contact us.
