Dharamkot Studio is a pottery paradise, to give you a unique and magical experience, offering hands-on sessions on pottery.

Making something with your own hands, with an outpour of love and kindness, in itself has such a magical feel to it.

Being one of the five elements of life, earthen clay reconnects you to your roots, brings you closer to your inner self, grounds you and enhances your awareness. It supports you to grow mindfully and attunes you to the call of your soul. Imagine your happy self, when you get to look at the majestic Dhauladhar Ranges while you immerse your hands fully, moulding and creating, hands on, on the potter’s wheel, to create something out of nothing, beautiful pots and pieces of art, or even to just play with the different textures of clay, giving it a form of your own, filling it up with any story untold.

This is what Dharamkot Studio offers you.‘Handmade with love.’ Situated amidst serenity and simple neighbourhood, Dharamkot Studio is a peaceful art space with a contemporary and raw interior – a place that you cannot resist falling in love with.

Dharamkot Studio is the perfect place to learn pottery. Manoj is a really humble, professional, and talented Potter. I loved being in the studio for its setting, views and the whole environment. I learned not only on the wheel but also hand crafting with Manoj, made beautiful jewelry and charms as well. I would definitely recommend it for people looking to learn pottery or a meditative art set in the hills. I loved every bit of my experience in the studio.

The studio is beautifully located in upper Dharamkot with a gorgeous view over the valley. It’s a beautiful space to be creative and play around with the clay. I attended the Diffuser Jewellery Making Workshop with Manou from the pottery studio and Tara from YgeiaX. It’s a basic introduction to working with clay. I spent a great few hours there creating my own jewellery. Manou was very supportive and did a great job in helping to realise any upcoming idea. After the firing we infused our jewellery with essential oils which added a nice extra to the whole process. Highly recommend for everybody who wants to get a feeling for clay and try out different tools and techniques. Very therapeutic and great fun (;

This is quite a unique place. Natural surroundings set in the tranquil hills of the Dhouladhar Range. It's a friendly vibe when you walk into the simple brick studio. Always welcome for chai its like a small family tribe. There is an assortment of beautiful handmade ideas put on display. I say ideas because that's how this place started a few years back. That idea is still in evolution and changing through the meditation of making. I knew Sadaiv back then when he was painting murals and its been great to see the quality of production always improving. Pop in your always welcome!

Dharamkot Studio is a must-go place for anyone who is visiting Dharamkot and loves to explore new arts and experiences. If you are new to pottery, you can learn the basics of pottery in a 2-3 hours session in which trainers teach you the art of centering the clay and how to make pots from that. It looks easy but it is quite challenging. I loved my session because I was doing pottery for the first time and I love to play with the clay since my childhood. It was like reliving those childhood moments. The trainers are very supportive and full of knowledge. They help you while letting you do it yourself. I loved the hot tea they served in the middle of the session. There is a whole range of some amazing black pottery items there which one can buy from them. It's beautiful and completely natural. They don't use any artificial colors.  As the sessions are most of the time already booked, I'll suggest you take a prior appointment with them over the phone. The studio is at a very beautiful location witnessing high mountains all around. This studio remains open throughout the year. It is one of the most famous places in Dharamkot to visit and very popular among foreigners who love to experience such things. Overall, I will highly recommend this place to visit if you are planning to go there in the future.
