Weekend Pottery Retreat

Join us for a fun pottery learning weekend (in India!), all by yourself, as a couple or with a bunch of friends!

Aura Pottery is a 20 minute drive from the city of Chandigarh and a 4-5 hour drive from New Delhi. Plan a holiday weekend away from the bustling life of the city and enjoy a stay at our three-acre Aura Farm for a Pottery retreat or pottery course in India. Our pottery instructors will guide you through the basics of wheel throwing and hand building techniques to help you discover the potter in you!

When not working in the studio, take a walk around our organic kitchen garden and learn a skill or two about sustainable farming. Else enjoy a swim in our infinity pool with amazing views, or simply relax at our spectacular and lush green gardens.  Home cooked meals made from fresh organic vegetables of the farm are included in the stay. If you’re a dog lover, the Aura pets will always keep you company.

Enjoy evenings in the Potters Villa with other guests over drinks, conversations and music. Bring your creative friends to a learning getaway and try something new this weekend! Everything is included in the retreat costs below- pottery in the studio, meals, fully furnished rooms and a blissful environment.
