  • Excellent deal with all those who visit the place. It is a workshop that started with pottery but is now a concept around warm art, Peruvian cultures, the ceramic work and connection with your environment. If you have the opportunity to talk with Marilu be found with a beautiful very passionate person so made. Cusi thanks for your recommendations about microbrews in the Sacred Valley!

  • Beautiful ceramics, gladly. There are all kinds, from utilitarian to works of art. First you see a private exhibition and a video. Then you go to the showroom, where there are many ceramics of all kinds. The place has a coffee, and you can separate kinds of ceramic. It also has a beautiful garden, where children can run free. Difficult choice of ceramics, all beautiful, really is a place that is worth knowing. You have to ring the Bell to enter. Opening hours from 9 to 7 pm.

  • Very friendly, clean place! Great to see people at work, get an explanation of the process, and meet Sr. Seminario! Lots of awesome pottery to look at & purchase.
  • Every time I come here its a wonderful experience! I have to bring more money, cause I want some of everything here.
  • Last year my family and I went to Pablo Seminario's studio. It was the most enriching experience - to learn and see how he has brought back the traditional ways of ceramic pottery art. His staff were wonderful - but the most delightful portion was meeting Pablo himself - in my view - he is a true Yogi . Truly an honor to spend time with him and see his creations.
  • This ceramics workshop is owned by the world-renowned artist Pablo Seminario, who has works in Chicago's Field Museum and the United Nations headquarters. Guides demonstrate the process of making fine ceramics and don Pablo himself, humble and warm, welcomes you to his studio where he tells of his own history among beautiful and powerful works of art. Many unique ceramic pieces are employed artfully in the construction of the lovely buildings and patios, creating a delightful and welcoming look. The store is full of reasonably-priced handmade pieces crafted by artisans don Pablo has trained. Each work is unique and there is no sense of mass-produced sameness. The ceramics are inspired by the rich and ancient history of Peruvian clay art. Friendly staff help you with questions and carefully pack your purchases to travel safely as hand luggage. The Seminario workshop is a must-see if you visit the Sacred Valley.
  • Beautiful ceramics on display. Of course we bought two pieces of art.
