About Aura

Aura Art Stay is a pottery farm and backpacker’s hostel in Chandigarh, India, which is one of the ideal points of interests in Chandigarh if you’re a solo traveller or backpacker. Set up within a 3 acre farmhouse area, it offers a large, fully equipped pottery and art studio to potter in, paint, sketch and sculpt, a swimming pool as well as large outdoor spaces to work in. Aura is 30 minutes away from Chandigarh, the beautiful city created by the French architect Le Corbusier.

Amidst lush green surroundings, Aura Art Stay is also popularly known for its pottery courses. There is a fully equipped pottery studio available for use for amateur and intermediate potters who would like to book a pottery course at Aura Art Stay. The resident potter Anuja Lath, also known as the Weekend Potter, is available for teaching pottery early mornings on weekdays and full days on weekends. You can book a pottery retreat with us to learn about the basics of pottery, kiln firing & glazing. We also have a library of books on ancient India pottery, different kinds of pottery in India, the history of pottery in India and how pottery evolved in India. If you’re looking to get down to some real pottery business in India, this is your chance!

Besides pottery, Aura Art Stay is also available for hosting events and workshops. You can book an event with us if you'd like! Events such as art workshops, small organisation gatherings, retreat workshops and professional photo and video shoots are welcome to be held at Aura.

At Aura, you will be offered a comfortable stay, healthy organic meals, and a creatively designed peaceful get-away from the everyday life. Come along to potter around, make new friends, reflect and basically have some fun!
