Interesting experience, but the shop was a little disappointing. Things I liked were not for sale!
The students were being lectured when I visited so I was unable to experience
any form of guided tour.
May be wise to make enquiries before visiting.

we were so excited to visit this place... however, we forgot to ensure certain things beforehand and lo! after a tricky journey meandering through a narrow road, as we hit the pottery, we got a shock as it was closed, that being a Sunday. Our fault. So be careful!
However, the journey to and fro was beautiful.

A big attraction of the village is the wonderfully restored mud house of Norah Richards. She first came to India in 1911 with her husband Mr. Philip Ernest Richards, who had joined as Professor of English in the Dyal Singh College of Lahore. After his death in 1920 she settled in Andretta. It was in the year 1948 when S. Sobha Singh, the renowned artist and painter of the master-piece Sohni-Mahiwal, at the invitation of Mrs. Richiards, settled at Andretta with his studio. Her house has now been wonderfully restored.

Nice and cozy place. The main people who run the place were away, but a very senior member of the team was present. Liked what we saw overall but felt that the place could have been better maintained, and the process of creating pottery could have been better explained. Many of the finished items were away for some exhibition in Delhi. Having said that, the place felt authentic, and the people warm. May be would visit it again next time when the owners are there, and more stuff on the showcase

This is a studio for making pottery with a workshop and shop displaying works of artists. Pottery making classes are held fir a fee. The surroundings are pristine, village like atmosphere. There is only one.narrow road accessible to this village.

We had a very interesting time at Andretta where we tried our hands at making some pots ourselves. Also, there were some great designs available for abstract art show pieces, we bought a couple and are quite happy with our decision. Kudos for keeping this place running and continuing the art of hand-made pottery.

Its a very small village near Palampur. Visit only if you have pottery on your mind. It can be accessed with private car. No parking space available. Its off the beaten track kinda space

It is a good small place to visit if you have interest in pottery. They have three sections viz., Workshop, shop and museum. Though no entry charge into the by place, you need to pay for museum (RS. 10) and Workshop practical experience (three different packages) though they don't provide any receipt for payment. The place is in poor condition, but if you love pottery and want to do it yourself, just pay and learn- you would enjoy it. Many arts and crafts student stay there and learn. A good place, which could be a wonderful destination with some government support I think

If you have interest in pottery, please visit this place in a small interior village. It's a small place with a workshop, a shop and a museum. There are charges for each, though no receipt is given and no charges for entry to this place. Saw many people (art and craft students, enthusiasts), including some foreigners working in the Workshop. This place could be much much better with some more funding, government support. Go if u have interest in pottery.
