Это мое лучшее и любимое воспоминание с Кипра! Обязательно посетите урок на гончарном круге, уверяю, никто не останется равнодушным!) Чудесные люди, потрясающий учитель с безумным чувством юмора, вдохновляющее место в центре Пафоса. Если вы не успеваете дождаться, пока ваши изделия обожгут, вам все равно предоставят изделия на память (кстати, они могут быть гораздо лучше, чем ваши :))!

Really enjoyed learning more about pottery and making a bowl out of clay for the first time. The location has a great atmosphere and artsy vibe. Costa, our teacher, was really funny and extremely knowledgeable. He was also open about sharing his personal story which made the experience very special and meaningful. Plus, we left with a bowl to remember this moment by. Thanks so much!

My husband and I had a great time learning from Costas, but also hearing his life story in Cyprus and how he ended up being such a talented artist. Something to experience when in Paphos and to bring memories and your piece of art back home. Natalia received us with a great smile and also explained all the different arts and crafts from the shop. As a craft lover, this was definetly another added value to the experience.
