Pottery Sessions in Larnaka

Nestled in little streets that branch off from the main seafront; around Agios Lazaros (Saint Lazarus) Church and the nearby old neighbourhoods and city quarters, a whole array of artisans are busy in their traditional workshops, many of them inspired by ancient Cypriot art.

Among the artists are candle makers, carpenters, pottery-makers, icon-painters and bakers, all of who will welcome you to watch them at work as they explain the history of their own particular folkart.

In particular, pottery is a very ancient craft on the island, with the red clay vessels – known as ‘pitharia’ – constituting an integral part of daily life in olden times when they were used to store and transport liquids such as wine and water, as well as for the storage of agricultural products. Today, the pottery studios combine tradition with modern design. Getting your hands dirty and creating something unique is a wonderful experience and some of the studios offer pottery making lessons/sessions, offering you the opportunity to make and take home a lasting memory of your trip to Larnaka!
