O-Eleonas offers residential Ceramic Classes and Pottery Retreats for one and two weeks in Spring and Fall. The courses are for beginners and advanced students. The retreat is set in a restored 17th century Venetian olive mill only five kilometers from The Unesco World heritage town of Corfu. It is surrounded by ancient olive groves, wild forest and it is located at the historic village of Kompitsi.
Our goal is to offer an idilic setting and a facility in which exceptional instructors can teach and inspire students from around the world. The proximity to the ancient sites, museums and the every day life of the village makes this place a heavenly working place where students and instructors can enjoy an inspiring learning environment. Our courses combine hand building, figurative sculpture with live model, the use of moulds, sketch, slip techniques, glazing, firing
As part of the cultural exposure we offer Greek cooking classes from local chefs, visits to the gorgeous beaches and tours to the local museums and archeological sites.
Professional artists can also rent the facilities at the times that the studios are not occupied by classes. Please contact Elena Korakianitou for further details on rental prices and accomodations.
Join us for an unforgettable learning experience.
