Discover Portugal. Traditional tile painting workshop
The ceramic azulejo tiles are one of the most famous symbols of Portugal. They come in every colour, size and design, covering most of the historic buildings in Lisbon. How are they made? Ana, one of our most loved educators, opens the door to her ceramics studio in Lisbon for us to make a traditional Portuguese tile of our own.
During the 2-hour tile painting workshop you get to choose one of the traditional designs, or make one of your own! Our educator Ana guides you through the process from step one, giving a brief introduction on history and techniques of traditional tile painting. The studio is light and peaceful – almost meditative when everyone is taken away by inspiration painting their little pieces of art.
What a fun class! Love the selection of patterns. If you are not able to pick up your finished tile, they can ship it and shipping was very reasonable. The atmosphere was very pleasant. It was actually very therapeutic to paint the tiles. If I lived in Lisbon, I would come to this studio and paint tiles regularly.
