What Is It?

The weather is exactly right to get down and get your hands {and clothes} dirty. Wet clay, artistic expression, pretty pottery—all in an idyllic environment with sprawling lawns, towering trees, flowering shrubs and lotus-ponds.

Ptah, a start-up formed with the goal of bridging the gap between Indian artisans and the urban population, is organising a pottery workshop at the Sanskriti Foundation.

You’ll be taught by Angad Prajapati from Azamgarh, who teaches the craft at schools and is known for adapting, innovating and incorporating changes in the profession. 

Who Is It For? 

Anyone above 18 years can try his or her hand at this fun, relaxing art form. Children above eight years are welcome, as long as a parent accompanies them.

You could be an absolute beginner looking for a brand new hobby or a seasoned potter; this should be fun for everyone. 

Why Should I Go For It?

You’ll learn hand-building techniques of working with clay, working on the potter’s wheel {called throwing} and decoration techniques.

In addition, you get to explore the Sanskriti Terracotta Museum, the Crafts Museum, and public and private studios. The package also includes a Sanskriti Kendra special lunch, and evening high tea.


Do wear clothes you’re not afraid to get dirty as pottery is inevitably messy. If you have children, take them along. And you get to take what you make home!
