About
For over 4,000 years, the Minoan civilization demonstrated its love for life and nature with classy paintings, on almost anything, from pots to residences and palaces. They even exported their artwork to the entire then known world. Until in 1650 B.C., the great volcanic explosion of Santorini, destroyed the first European civilization, namely the Minoan. In our workshop, you can still experience the ancient art of Minoan painting, from the hands of local Cretan artists, creating museum copies. You can find us in the beautiful, traditional village of Peza at Irida, only a few kilometers away from Knossos.

My husband and I came here with my younger sister to look at the handmade pottery. We ended up purchasing a beautiful piece and learning about their process of painting the pieces. This is a great place to visit if you want a very well made/handmade Crete or Minoan souvenir.

A collection of Heraklion Archaeological Museum's artifacts is recreated here. I had an enjoyable time learning about the painting techniques as well as the history behind them.
