Important Information

  • Please note that during the ceramics workshop, guests will observe a demonstration by a local craftsman, rather than creating their own ceramic pieces. They can also purchase ceramics from the venue if they wish. Additionally, we would like to clarify that we do not have responsibility or cooperation with the Greek tavern or the venue for ceramics; these are managed by separate companies. We simply bring groups there to enjoy their time.
