Fun Family Workshops – 2.5 hours

Participants hand-build and paint their own unique functional art, guided by an instructor, such as

  • platters
  • bowls
  • plates
  • hamsas
  • menorahs, and more

Chaya Esther has had kids as young as 2 years old make something you would be proud to put on your table! 

‘BRING ISRAEL HOME’ Creating in Clay Workshop – 2.5 hours

This tailored workshop is perfect for a family trip, a bar or bat mitzvah group activity, a bridal shower, or a ‘Girls Night Out’. It’s a fun, creative and meaningful activity where you’ll create a memory, and something useful and beautiful for your home. Participants hand-build and paint their own unique functional art, guided by an instructor. 

Glazed pieces will be fired and ready in 24-48 hours and there’s free delivery in Jerusalem to your hotel or airbnb for groups of 4 or more. Your finished piece will not only be a meaningful memento of your trip—its presence in your home means that Israel will always be with you, no matter where you live.

Clay Dates – 2 hours

Create a cherished family heirloom to use and to display as functional art in this workshop designed to serve as a ‘date night’ or a romantic evening of creativity and connection for any couple. Enjoy a relaxing, fun evening, and a wonderful memory of creating something beautiful together. 

Choose a project to work on, such as a serving piece, a seder plate, or matching mugs. Your workstation will be set up for you when you arrive, along with music, wine, and refreshments.  After some instruction to get you started on your project, your instructor will be discreetly in the back, available to help whenever needed.
