Viktoria Ceramics Studio tour

Visit the hottest ceramic studio in Copenhagen and get inspired by amazing artworks

Today the place is occupied by six permanent designers who run a small school called ClayArt, where they offer exclusive courses and pass on their knowledge. The studio is also a shop where you can buy the many handmade crafts.

The artists of Viktoria Studio will take you on a tour of their studio and show you how they make ceramics.
