What you'll do

We are open again and looking forward to host You. In our workshop. In workshop I cooperate with another lektors, you can meet Radek, Karel, Jenny, Joy, Josephine, Bara, or Fakhti, not only me :-)

We will show you how enameling works, how to use enamel paints and then you will have a go at painting a mug yourself. When you finish your mug, we will fire it in a furnace so you can take it home with you straight away.

Enameling is such a unique technique – powdered glass paint is applied on a metal base and fired at 800°C. We will show you everything you need to know and will be available to you throughout your whole stay.

You do not need to bring anything, just yourself!

This workshop is great for both groups or individuals, adults or children, team building or hen parties, birthday parties.
Other things to note
Duration circa 2 hours (but you can stay longer).

If you would like a different time slots (between 12:00-18:00) - just let us know (we will check availability and add slots for you.)

I've been working with enamel ever since I was a teenager. Over the years, I have managed to make living out of something I love - creating enamel mugs and jewellery and bringing this old technique to life.
I wanted to share this technique with wider population so I started Smalterie (our enameling workshop).

Had a great experience here, trying enamel for the first time :) Everything was prepared and the teacher was very helpful all the way through. I highly recommend this, if you wanna bring back some handmade souvenir!

There are not enough cookies in the world to make up for all the effort Karel went through to ensure we could finish our mugs and had the best experience possible.

It was a very nice and interesting experience. Karel was very sweet and it was easy to follow the instructions. We very much enjoyed painting with the enamel and now have original self made cups from Prague, the perfect souvenir!

This was an awesome activity to step away from sight seeing in Prague and just connect as a family. Our 3 year old thoroughly enjoyed the process and so did we. Our instructor was beyond helpful, kind and very informative. Completely recommend this experience to all. Side note; we felt that this experience was extremely family friendly for us but was not childish. My husband and I were able to really delve into the process and experiment with the various techniques shown. The class was all adults except for our daughter. The instructor tailored the instruction to our family specifically so we could assist our daughter in a simple design & then showed us more advanced options.

We had the best time! The workshop was the nicest experience and we were treated so lovely. The mugs will forever be there to remember our stay in Prague. <3

Great fun for everyone who visits Prague! You can paint your own mug with a great help of people who works there. Beware - it's not as easy as it seems :)
