Come by and have a unique Sintra & Ceramics experience on your weekend!
We host a handbuild workshop-style each Saturday/Sunday morning. You can learn how to make a Mug, Bowl or a Plate. You may also freestyle and create your own models.
All levels are welcome in these workshops from advanced to beginners who have never had any clay experience before.
The students will learn some of the most common hand-building techniques, pinching pottery, coiling building, and slab building.
Techniques such as carving and embossing will be demonstrated by the teacher to flood you with creative ideas on how to make your work your own!
The studio will then glaze your work in your colour of choice and fire your pieces for you, ready for you to collect a few weeks later!
The workshop price of 35€ per class including all materials.
Our studio doesn't have a kiln yet to fire and glaze your pieces, but soon with your classes will be able to buy one in the near future :). Anyways don't worry, for now they are fired and glazed in a Ceramic Studio partnering with us!
As the workshops are given at the Farm Ecoaldeia Janas, we invite you to have a tour around the property to see the agriculture/animals living there. Also, to have a look at their Grocery Store Aldea Coop where they sell their organic products and from the best local farmers.
Please sign up carefully as we do not offer cash refunds on our workshops.
We have a strict 24 hour cancellation policy on all workshops and classes. These workshops can book out weeks in advance, so to ensure a fair booking system we ask for more than 24 hours notice so we can offer the seat to another student.
If cancelled before 24 hours the workshop will be credited back onto your account to book in another time.
