  • One of a kind place but expensive. We went there by searching pottery classes. Later on we came to know he (Galip) is a celebrity with two Guinness World records to his name. He had just finished a Chinese tour. He can't speak English so he used a translator and asked us if we are with some tour. I said no we are on our own. He gave a pottery making demo to our kids and showed us their general pottery collection and then the master piece collection. Believe me it was out of the world but so expensive that I cannot afford one. Example one ceramic wine glass was 750TL (120 Euro) or so. Some ceramic plates were priced 18000TL(3000 Euro). He promised to give us a big discount, I don't remember how much, but still it was so much expensive. We apologised that we are not buying anything and he said no worries you are not the first one not to buy anything. I liked the spirit. Overall it was an awesome experience.
  • Hidden museum inside natural cave, very nice ceramic artwork pottery pieces, inside space (basement cave) divided into many rooms, masterpiece room is breathtaking with lots of pieces done by Galip himself, skilled Potter demonstrated the process live on foot driven spinning wheel to make different shapes of vases based on unique beautiful red clay that is extracted from local red River in town of Avanos, we really enjoyed the workshop, museum and unique pottery.
