We fancied a week on Zante away from the UK to catch the last of the summer sun and chose to stay in beautiful Tsilivi.

The island is gorgeous, the people are very genuine and friendly, and as well as the beaches, lovely food and Dennis’s famous black wine, there are too many plus points to mention.

We wanted to take a walk to the Ceramic Art Studio and were welcomed by Dionysia, who kindly gave us a drink before promptly apologising snd leaving us to mind the studio as she ‘had to pop out’ for just a short while!

Whilst Dionysia was gone we had plenty of time to wander around and look at all of the beautiful art on display and choose a few pieces (wrapped very nicely by Mr Avouri) which we were fortunate enough to bring back to our home in Darlington.

If we go back we would definitely choose a few more pieces (we already regret not buying more of the little things that were on display for friends and family) and we will be sure to spend a happy afternoon in one of Dionysia‘s ceramic classes.

If you are visiting Zante and have a car to hand, or you are staying near Tsilivi and fancy a walk out - it’s well worth the journey to visit the studio - and you’ll not be disappointed!

A fantastic experience, lots of fun. Dionysia is a very talented lady with a beautiful personality.
We had a 2 hour pottery class which we really enjoyed. A very unique experience. It was very relaxing and light hearted and in a beautiful location.
I would highly recommend taking some “me” time in your holiday and give it a try. You don’t even need to be good at it and you can collect your work and take it home.

She also sells her work in her fantastic workshop, which is very beautiful

We came here last week. It is a lovely walk up and then down the hills in a beautifully secluded area.

Dionysua gave us some homemade lemonade on arrival and we eventually decided to buy a few products.

This is our second visit to the studio, last year we purchased a ceramic turtle while this year we purchased a decorative bowl and some wall art.

We recieved a free lift back to our hotel which was very nice.

We will certainly be returning here on our next stay in Tsilivi.

I have tried to upload some photographs of the purchased products in my home however they are not allowed to be added for this review. I know photography is banned within the studio, it may well be to do with this.

We found this ceramic shop by accident last year while out for a walk. The owner makes all her own things which are fantastic. When you go in you are greated with home made lemonade which is lovely and very welcoming after the walk to it. We visited again this year to buy more things. It is a must to visit, well wwrth the walk

We walked up from the town of Tsilivi following all the signs. When we got to the studio the owner herself asked us in and gave up a cold drink of lemonaid which she makes herself. We had a good look around her shop/house and after much deliberation we chose a piece to buy. She wrapped the item up very well for us and after paying she told us a little about how she came to be there and some of the history of her house and area. I would recommend this studio to anyone looking for a some items to remind you of your stay on the island which is all hand made and individual.

Thank you for an amazing morning making our own unique souvenirs. We both really enjoyed the experience and you patience shows no limits.
From the warm welcome with home made lemonade gentle instructions not rushed and ready to step in and help if needed to the delivery to our hotel with our very precious items.
This lady is such an amazing artist and makes the most fantastic ceramics so even if you don't find time to do a course which I would do again in a heart heat , visit the gallery it beautiful.
Thank you for a truly memorable day.

Dionysia welcomed us into her beautiful workshop and gardens presenting us with homemade lemonade, as we worked our way around 2 floors of ceramics. She has such a diverse range of ceramic work - there is something for everyone. It is well worth a visit.

We walked up to the studio from our hotel, it was quite far but worth it, as what we found was a lovely welcoming lady who has part of her family home as her ceramic studio. Full of unique designs, we spent ages there deciding what to buy while drinking home made lemonade and talking about her interesting life. The owner even popped out to collect her son from school and left us and an older couple there, so refreshing. Definitely worth a visit!

My little boy back in England had been crazing me to try real clay pottery. We asked at our hotel and found out about the above studios . When we arrived Dionysia was busy . Her children invited my son to join them to play . I sat outside in the sun looking at the garden of olive trees. When she has finished serving she spent time with my little boy making a turtle and pencil case. Dionysia even delivered them in time for our flight home. On my return next year , I will definitely return because of the warm welcome and feeling like I'm in real Greece.
