Aura Pottery Holiday & Retreat in India

Aura Pottery is a contemporary ceramic studio located near the beautiful city of Chandigarh in India. We offer a handcrafted pottery experience through our pottery retreat residential program that ranges from two to twelve weeks. We also offer a non residential 2 month pottery program, Saturday workshops, a studio day pass and studio membership.

Our programs are best suited to creative minds looking to discover themselves through the medium of clay, while also enjoying a peaceful getaway. We welcome beginner, intermediate and professional ceramic artists for pottery retreats at Aura, where we offer them a comfortable stay, healthy organic meals and time to reflect in a serene natural environment.



Our Story

Aura Pottery was started in 2016 and visualized as a ceramic studio that would someday be buzzing with people who love to learn and practice pottery. What started with a lone potter’s wheel and a bag of clay, evolved into a fun, creative space that offers artists the opportunity to discover, learn and express.
