What you'll do

From BarroAzul we offer a workshop in which we will tell you where the Seville pottery tradition comes from, what are the ceramic techniques practiced over centuries and whose fame has transcended our borders.

So, how do we do it?

Firstly, we will tell you a little about the history of Sevillian ceramics. Next, you will be given a practical demonstration of Triana's main ceramic decoration techniques. You will be shown several of the oldest techniques for making 'Cuerda Seca', 'Arista' and 'Painted tile' tiles and you will have the opportunity to paint with yourself. Then, you will decorate your own tiles with two different techniques to take home with you.

You can take your tiles with you, but YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT AT LEAST 24 HOURS .
Our level of English is basic, please be patient with us.
Other things to note
When preparing your visit keep in mind that WE NEED AT LEAST 24 HOURS TO HAVE THE TILES READY and you can take them with you. But if you can´t, don´t worry, we'll ship them and you can pay after.
Our level of English is basic, please be patient with us.
Ask us for discounts for children.

BarroAzul was born thanks to Paula Felizón (anthropologist and ceramist) and Antonio Librero (art historian and cultural manager), who have been working in the world of artistic ceramics from the perspective of their different disciplines for years, and who after collaborating as documentalists for Centro Ceramica Triana, they decided to apply their knowledge and share it to all the visitors to Triana. We also have the collaboration of Honor Edgcombe, a nice British girl who brings her experience as a ceramist in several workshops of artistic creation.

si vous souhaitez connaître l'histoire de la céramique ( azulejos) a triana et a Séville c'est le bon endroit ! Paula revient sur cette histoire et nous apprend deux méthodes pour faire de la céramique. On repart donc avec nos oeuvres ( que l'on récupère le lendemain car il faut attendre qu'elles sèchent )

What a great day! I wanted an escape from the busy city + the heat and this was perfect! I got to spend a few hours relaxing and making art with great company. Paula was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of ceramics and helped me create my own step by step. A great atmosphere and a wonderfully interactive activity :)
