What you'll do

Here, You'll be experiencing to paint traditional portuguese tiles.

First, you'll be given a small explanation about the history and the techniques of the ceramics in Portugal.

The activity starts with the opening of a stencil, of a typical tile pattern of the traditional Lisbon facades, using a totally manual process, hand-drawn and hand-cutted. You'll keep your stencil.

Next, You will paint 6 tiles (7,5cmx7,5cm), already glazed. You can paint all with your own stamp, or use others opened by us on the atelier.

After painting, your tiles will be cooked. You'll put them in the gazete, which looks like a small shelf, that will go inside our kiln.

The cooking lasts about 2 days, so you can pick up your tiles by the end of the following week. These will be wrapped in a small gift box made by us. We can also send them to you for an additional fee.

We'll be waiting for you!

Hello, I’m Miguel Moura!

I grew up amongst the tiles in a ceramics family-business

I didn’t have the traditional training, but a practical training in loco, accompanied by a Master of portuguese ceramics.

I've been working now for over 10 years, drawing enormous pleasure from what I do.

At the moment I work for museums, shops, and private architecture projects. I'm proud of having my work scattered around the world.

I enjoy having the opportunity to spread the culture of the country and the city I was born, grew up and want to live in.

Det var en super rolig aktivitet med ett bra upplägg! Hade en kortfattad men grundlig genomgång av historiken av kakelplattorna vilket också gav mycket tid till att måla. Man fick välja om ville göra stora eller små plattor och de bjöd även på dryck. Miguel är super proffsig!

Отличный воркшоп! 3,5 часа пролетели незаметно. Мигель внимательный, опытный и интересный преподаватель. У каждого участника была возможность, не спеша, воплотить свою задумку. Можно выбрать из множества существующих орнаментов или придумать свои :)

Wspaniałe i wciągające doświadczenie dla każdego, niezależnie od zdolności manualnych ;) Miguel jest bardzo pomocnym i cierpliwym nauczycielem i indywidualnie podchodzi do każdego uczestnika w zależności od jego potrzeb i wizji. Widać, że to, co robi, jest jego pasją. Pamiątka w postaci własnoręcznie malowanych kafelków zostanie z nami na długo. Gorąco polecamy!!! :)

Recomiendo 100%. Al principio parecía todo tan difícil de hacer, pero Miguel lo hizo muy fácil. Tenia mucho conocimiento de la historia de azulejos y como hacerlo. Puedes hacerlo estilo libre o mas clásico. Independientemente de lo escojas siempre tendrás sus directrices
