Goa is everyone’s favourite destination to unwind with great food and drink by the beach. But what else can you do in Goa when you’ve eaten your fill (at least for the moment)? We’ve collated a quick list of offbeat experiences and workshops in Goa with recommendations from one of our favourite Goa go-to locals. Baneen (@baneeeen) – a public health researcher, photographer, dog lover, mom and B&B owner has the scoop on just how diverse the Goan experience can be.
She suggests you try a two-hour pottery class at Sylvia Kerkar Ceramics where you can learn the basics and try your hand at the potters’ wheel. The studio runs on the belief that pottery is a way of life, so get in a visit to experience this up close.
Another artistic option if you’re closer to Olaulim is Cosmosaic, run by Shallu Sharma. Here you can dabble in studying the art of mosaic. She conducts group workshops at art studios around Goa, and also at her home studio. If you do create something at a workshop, you may get to carry that little something home with you!
If food is still your thing even though you’re in between meals, why not attend a Sourdough Bread Masterclass? Call ahead and speak to Sujit Sumitran (whom Baneen refers to as the ‘bread whisperer’), and request him to host a special workshop for you and your friends/family.
