⚱ I´m co-founder of Frágil Studio located inside a co-work place called Plata Studio. I´ve worked before in some ceramic studios around Portugal .

During the last years I´ve been developing many workshops of "azulejos" and ceramics for all ages, spreading the crafts that are getting lost..⚱

We had such a cool experience with Francisco. The tile painting was such a unique experience and he gave us a great understanding off the history and culture surrounding Portuguese tiles. Would strongly recommend to anyone with a couple of hours in Porto to go to Francisco's studio to learn more!

Francisco shared the historical aspects of the tiles in Portugal, fed us tea and a yummy goody, and taught us how to be tile artists. His patience and attention to detail was much appreciated.

It was a great experience being able to paint azulejos tiles and have them as our personalised souvenir from Porto. Francisco makes us feel welcome. He had tea and snacks ready for us. He explained the tile painting steps clearly and guided us throughout the process. You can collect the tiles from him a couple of days later or he will be able to post them to you.

This tile experience is unique! We had so much fun. It was a cool and creative experience. Francisco gives helpful advice and tips so you will be more than happy with your result. Besides the good instructions he gives an interesting introduction about the history of tiles in Porto. Further he has a lot to tell about ceramic art.

It was an amazing experience for me and my daughters. Even my 5 years old one enjoyed with some help from Francisco. He is so kind and enthusiastic to teach and talk about tiles. It is truly worth the price and time, I am so looking forward to the completion of tiles. 8살, 5살 아이들도 쉽게 할수 있지만 단순하지도 않은 작업이었습니다. Francisco는 타일에 대해서 많은 것을 설명해주었고 직접 작업한 아름다운 타일들도 보여주었습니다. 아이들이 다른날 다시 와서 하면 안되냐고 할정도로 즐거운 시간이었고 프란치스코가 아이들을 잘 도와주어서 저도 제 타일에 집중해서 더 재밌었네요. 강추합니다^^
