Hansaram ceramic retreats

Discover the art of pottery like never before by the Arctic Circle, with expert instructions from some of the world's most renowned ceramic artists. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced potter, our in-depth retreat will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to take your craft to the next level. From wheel-throwing techniques to glazing and finishing, you'll learn everything you need to know to unleash your creative self.

Creating pottery, particularly in the calming wilderness of Lapland, involves a deep connection with the material and a sense of touch, sight, and sound. The act of shaping and molding the clay is a form of mindfulness, helping to bring awareness to the present moment and promoting a sense of well-being. Whatever the end result, the clay is a physical manifestation of this meditative state, making pottery a rewarding and fulfilling experience.
