Andretta Artists' Village is popular for pottery art and one of the most interesting spots to spend your time if you are fond of pottery. For me neither of it matched my preferences and found the place slightly boring.

A little isolated, though not far, from Palampur, this should not me missed if you fancy pottery. You can shop from their smallish shop as well for some interesting stuff or simply carry back what you make with your hands ... :)

Our helper at the Norwood Greens hotel took us here. Some men sat patiently with their pottery tools and painting and brushing away beauty onto them. We paid them 150 rs for a 20 mins pottery class to get a taste of their medicine. It was amazing and fantastic to learn and make something not even close to what they... More

A silent village in the backdrop of hills, the soil is famous for making pottery. If you know pottery (like shantiniketan) you can have your own pottery made. Norah's home is best place to enjoy the inner calmness and peace. Few homestays are available but highly priced. In nearby place, Panchmukhi, there is one hotel you can stay. The place... More

The place is run by a local family and basically a place where people with passion for pottery come and stay as guest n learn the art. Good if you are with teenagers, coz its a good exposure for them. Otherwise a waste of time going so far . The place is not maintained and lacks the touch of an... More

This one is a little off the way, approach is only by car. It's a tiny hamlet next to a fledgling stream. For INR 150/-, one can get a feel of how to fashion clay into pots. This is for a 20-min session. However, if one is seriously interested in learning, they do offer training. One can buy ceramic ware... More

While at Palampur or Dharamshala missing the Andretta Artists Village would to sacrilege for the discerning.

Andretta Village is near to Sobha Singh Art gallery. It is a quiet place where you would enjoy if you like pottery. You can try your hands at pottery and can create something, which you can keep as a souvenir. However, if you don't like pottery then it is not worth visiting.
