Pottery Classes

Creating each pot is a unique moment. The ability that clay gives you from a piece of amorphous matter to create objects that will make everyday life more beautiful give it invaluable value. The hours I go to the atelier are for me a source of energy and relaxation, and that’s what I’m looking for those who visit my atelier. The workshop is located 16 kilometres from Heraklion ( acces only with car ), in a unique location in the nature, with a spectacular view of Cretan mountains. The area around offers many opportunities for walking and visiting the nearby villages.

Presentation of folk musical instruments

Presentation of folk musical instruments

star-5
1
A unique place in the Cretan culture and the musical tradition of Crete, hold its traditional musical instruments. The roots of some musical instruments in Crete are lost in the depths of the ages. In the archaeological excavations of Knossos and Phaistos, representations of sculptures, ceramics and painting are depicted by musicians and dancers who point to the present day, where the lyre plays in the middle and the dancers dance around it cyclically. The ancient Cretes used to play the ancient lyre, as shown by representations in frescoes and seals. The presentation of folk instruments lasts for 1,5 hour and after a 1 hour break we continue with a nice evening in Dalabelos Estate Restaurant where we play music with the instruments we presented earlier with treats, refreshments, raki and other products of the estate.

Children can create a bath necklace

I will welcome you and your family in my garden, at the 1st soap factory of Crete. The place is child-friendly, with a playful style that inspires innocence and relaxation!

The aim is to thread the beads in sequence, to refine their motor skills and develop their concentration and their confidence. The ingredients are all-natural and child-safe, and the final creation, whether it's a necklace, a bracelet or a garland can later be used at home during the bath or you could hang in the closet for the nice smell.
