When you think of Greece, ceramic vessels & sculptures are one of the first images that pop into mind. Join this Make Your Own Souvenir Workshop to experience first-hand one of the most ancient art forms and immerse yourself into Greek culture. This Make Your Own Souvenir Workshop is fantastic for the creative visitors, the culture-loving types, and all travellers looking for an authentic experience in Athens.
Your Make Your Own Souvenir Workshop begins at Syngrou Metro Station, where you will meet your local guide. They will walk with you to the workshop where you will be greeted by professional ceramics artists, who will be your tutors for the day. The first part of your Make Your Own Souvenir Workshop involves learning a bit more about ancient Greek ceramics. A lot of what we know about ancient Greek culture we owe to the ceramic artifacts dug up in ancient ruins. Figurines used for religious purposes, urns meticulously painted with scenes from everyday life depicting people working, celebrating, grooming, socializing, doing sports and so much more! These humble and seemingly simple objects are quite the history gems for those who know where to look! Your tutors will give you some background knowledge to inspire you and help you decide what art object you prefer to create. Once you are ready, you will roll your sleeves up and get working with clay! No need to worry if you are a beginner, your tutors will be there to guide and help you throughout the activity. After your figurine or vessel is ready it will be dried and fired up and sent to your hotel for you or even shipped to your home address if you prefer. One thing is certain, with this Make your Own Souvenir Workshop, this time you’ll be taking home more than just a holiday souvenir!
