Cappadocia has more to offer than its charming landscapes and valleys. Spend an afternoon learning about world-famous Avanos pottery, appreciating demonstrations from expert potters, watching them create masterpieces, and receiving first-hand tips on creating your own art pieces.

Begin with a drive to the small town of Avanos, admiring its cobblestone streets and majestic views over the river. Soon explore why this town is known as the craft center of Cappadocia—you pass by many family-owned pottery factories.

Step into a cave typical of local workshops and ceramic pottery production, watching a demonstration from a local potter. Learn the ways this art has been preserved since 1600 BC and how ceramic clay from the red silt of the Kizilirmak has been used to this day. After watching the potters' masterful techniques with ceramic, you get a chance to put it to practice, creating your own art piece to take as a souvenir.

Explore the attached gallery with finished pieces and admire their unique designs and bold colors. Perhaps choose a few to purchase before returning back to your Cappadocia hotel.
