Welcome to Slow Pottery
Slow Pottery is a pottery studio started by Nikita Dawar in 2017 in Bangalore, with a vision to teach studio pottery and make it accessible to all without loosing the integrity of the art form.
In 2021, Nikita with her husband Karthik moved to their farm Velanga Orchard in Andhra Pradesh, where they were able to combine their personalities and create a beautiful blend of the two worlds.
Slow Pottery is now a farm pottery studio, where Nikita conducts and teaches courses during the winters and spring seasons. The registrations start 5 months prior to the courses so theres ample time for you to plan your stay and course. The course comes with the provision of the farm stay and is 1/2/3 months long.
Besides the residential courses, Slow Pottery also has an Online Beginners Pottery Wheel Course that can be done at home at your own pace and time.
And if you'd like to learn a simpler form of pottery - handbuilding, Nikita posts a fun simple handbuilind project every friday know as clay play fridays.
The slow pottery store is not an ongoing store. Every two months, Nikita sends out an update on Instagram and to our Slow Pottery Newsletter Subscribers for Boob Mug preorders. Once in a blue moon, you might also find tableware without preorders, but that happens rarely.
