What you'll do

Coming to "Pilotechnio" the only essentials are your good mood and to let your creativity inspires you. We will provide you with the rest. We have a wide selection of ceramics ready to be painted. You choose the ceramic that you want and using the necessary tools (pencils, colours, stencils etc.) which we provide you with, you can start creating your own piece of art. We will be there to assist you with suggestions and answer the questions you may have during the whole procedure. After you finish painting your ceramic, we keep it at our workshop, glaze it and fire it in our kiln for 15 to 20 hours. So your pottery will be ready to be picked up from our workshop the next day. In case of departure we can send it to you anywhere in Greece.

Pottery art is our expertise. Originated from Sifnos where the first great potters of greek history came from and with our family tradition going back over seven generations there was no other way. Myself started spending time on the pottery wheel when I was 5 years old next to my father who is professional potter and my mentor. With our guidance you will paint your very own pottery and enjoy the whole process. Sotiria with her unconditioned kindness will help you with anything you may need.

Très déçue par l'expérience. Nous n'avons pas été reçus par l'hôte, mais par Margaret, ne parlant quasiment pas anglais. Aucune explication ne nous a été donnée. Aucun contact avec elle. Elle est restée devant le magasin à parler avec des amis ou sur son téléphone. Nous n'avons pu récupérer notre poterie que le surlendemain soir soit quasi 3 jours plus tard. Et en arrivant pour la récupérer surprise elle nous demande 10 euros supplémentaires car nous avons choisi de peindre un bol. Nous n'avions jamais été prévenus avant. Après 2 échecs de paiement par carte bancaire (je n'ai pas eu les tickets d'échecs elles les a détruits) elle nous offre finalement les 10 euros. Moindre chose pour la piètre expérience que nous avons passé.

This was so much fun! My partner and I are not creative at all but still had a great time painting our own designs on the pottery. Included in the price is a small piece of pottery but you are able to purchase the bigger pieces if you'd prefer and the prices are very reasonable. The host was so lovely and friendly and made our experience great. Just be aware that the pottery you paint needs to be cooked so you'll have to collect it the next day - so don't do this on your last day of holiday!

We spent a great time. It was a pleasant experience to paint our own pottery. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. I warmly recommend this experience.

Tres belle experience et un beau moment passée avec mes filles en activités manuelles qui nous donnent un souvenir unique de Sifnos. Merci.

This experience is a must for all ages! My wife and I had an incredible time and were honored to take part in one of Sifnos’s greatest treasures, ceramics. Our hosts were beyond welcoming and filled the session with great conversation, help, and a sense of ease. We would highly recommend this experience.

Wonderful experience in the heart of pottery land. If you're in Sifnos, highly recommend unwinding for a few hours here.
